When you play at the game of thrones you win or you die.
I’m not sure what S.I. is going for. Has Goodell slayed the competition to find his seat on the Iron Throne (or, in this case, the “Throne of Games”)? Is this wishful thinking because they heard that the kings who sit the throne are repeatedly cut by the blades from which it’s comprised? The thought of now calling Roger Goodell “King Scab” certainly brings a smile.
I guess this is fitting in that George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire is filled with tragedy and death, and the Iron Throne seems to be bad luck. Sounds about right for the NFL and its much maligned “king” to me.
With season 3 of Game of Thrones starting up at the end of March, I look forward to whatever gruesome end this “King Goodell” finds.
