Roger Goodell tried stopping NFL players from making ‘Ballers’ cameos

In an interview with ESPN’s show Mike & Mike, Mark Wahlberg revealed that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell tried to stop players from appearing on the HBO show Ballers, of which Wahlberg is an executive producer. Ballers follows a retired former football star played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and has featured many current NFL stars, such as DeSean Jackson, Antonio Brown, and Steven Jackson, among others.

While lots of players have been interested in appearing on the show in its second season (which debuts this coming Sunday), Wahlberg said that at first it was difficult to get them involved. He said the only people calling were “guys like Roger Goodell, saying, ‘you can’t do this,’ and various owners in the league.”

Wahlberg insisted it would be good for the league, and now, it appears as though the naysayers have changed their tunes.

The players should be able to go on the show if they choose.  Roger Goodell has been a stain on the NFL since he was appointed Commissioner so he needs to let this go and enjoy his Tom Brady suspension.  Hell, maybe Wahlberg should ask Tom Brady to make a cameo just to piss Goodell off.  Don’t forget, “Ballers” Season 2 starts tomorrow!
