Chiefs veteran joins Patrick Mahomes in protest of NFL's idiotic idea

Patrick Mahomes already spoke out about the NFL's ridiculous idea of flexing Thursday Night Football and one teammate just joined him in protest.

The NFL has tabled discussions regarding whether or not the league wants to start flexing Thursday Night Football games in the future. 

Why it was even brought to the table, in the first place, is questionable, at best. This is easily one of the NFL's dumbest ideas in a very, very long time. And if it's passed, it's going to really affect teams and their respective fans.

Hell, it'll even affect opposing fans. It will literally affect everyone involved.

There has been a solid amount of people speaking out against the idea. From NFL legends like J.J. Watt to owners like John Mara, many are making their distaste with the idea. 

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes even tweeted his objections when the news broke Wednesday and now, veteran safety Justin Reid has joined his superstar teammate.

Reid and Mahomes are 100% correct. The logistics behind this potential change would be an absolute nightmare. The overwhelming majority of Thursday night games suck, anyway. Why in the hell would complicating the process make things any better?

The NFL already decided to increase the number of appearances from one to two. Meaning, teams are now eligible to play on TNF twice in a given season. It's obviously a move to satisfy Amazon, who paid $1 billion for rights to the TNF package. Now, TNF has more opportunities to showcase good/elite teams instead of the bottom-feeders that were once required to fill out the slate.

Talks will pick up again in late May. Let's just hope the insanity ends, there.
