The league says they did their due diligence on Meat Loaf but ended up with a guy who “just couldn’t sing.” They say Meat Loaf had a problem with asthma and couldn’t perform at a certain temperature or something.

Last weekend, Meat Loaf slammed the AFL bosses as “jerks” and labeled critics of his performance as “butt smellers.” He reportedly vows to keep other top entertainers from performing at the event.
