    On Friday, the NFL indicated that the league had no desire to help the Obama administration sell and implement Obamacare this fall.

    NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy emailed the Washington Examiner's Philip Klein to say the NFL had no plans to help promote Obamacare:

    We have responded to the letters we received from members of Congress to inform them we currently have no plans to engage in this area and have had no substantive contact with the administration about PPACA’s implementation.

    Wow. Up until a day or two ago, it looked as if they were gonna be on board the propaganda train in a big way. Wonder what happened.

    I am guessing that the probation officers involved with the NFL players did not want their clients in the spotlight at this time.

    Must have something to do with the concussion issue. I thought it odd that the NFL would even consider taking political sides on an issue, especially ObamaCare.

    That is okay there is always the high school kids in California they can train to hit their parents up with the propaganda.
