A Lot Of NFL Players Hate 'Thursday Night Football'
NFL players, like Seattle's Richard Sherman, have said "Thursday Night Football" is unsafe. So why is pro football on Thursdays still a thing?By Carter Woodiel | October 22, 2015
The Seattle Seahawks and San Fransisco 49ers square off on this week's edition of "Thursday Night Football." But chances are, most players aren't happy about it.
Take Richard Sherman, the Seahawks cornerback who isn't known for being shy about his opinions. In an interview Wednesday with ESPN, Sherman said Thursday night games go against the league's proclaimed commitment to player safety. (Video via Nike)
Said Sherman: "Any time you play a football game and play another one a few days later, it's going to be tough on the body. But it's just another one of those things. Another one of those simple contradictions of the league because they care about us."
