The Houston Texans will play the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night and not everyone is happy about it.
Texans star running back Arian Foster was to the point about how he, and others, feel about playing Thursday night games.
“I don’t know a player that likes it,” Foster said via the Houston Chronicle. “I really don’t know a fan that likes it, either. I think it’s just the league’s way of trying to generate more revenue.”
“They emphasize concussions when they start getting hit with lawsuits and they care about the players’ safety but Thursday Night Football is putting every player on the football field in danger,” he added.
Thus far the games on Thursday night have been noncompetitive but to say that fans are not interested in watching these contest is stretching it. The laughable game between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants managed to rank seventh in the ratings last week.
