Two years after the NFL strong-armed Tony Romo and his business partners into abandoning plans to hold a fantasy football convention at a Las Vegas facility owned by a casino (but which wasn’t itself a casino), another test has emerged, which literally involves strong-arming.
Via Jarrett Bell of USA Today, nearly three dozen players have arrived in Las Vegas for an arm wrestling competition. It’s being held at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, which puts it even more directly at odds with league policy than Romo’s event did.
The participants include Steelers linebacker James Harrison (coach), retired-for-now running back Marshawn Lynch (coach), Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills, 49ers linebacker Navorro Bowman, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, Raiders punter Marquette King, Raiders defensive end Mario Edwards, Patriots safety Patrick Chung, and Cowboys receiver Lucky Whitehead.
