American Federation of Musicians Blasts National Football League

1409368414nfl_logoThe American Federation of Musicians (AFM) has blasted the National Football League (NFL) for its Super Bowl kickback plan. In what could be deemed the most colossal “pay to play” push ever, the NFL has asked potential Super Bowl halftime performers if they would pay the league to play at its big game. “It’s not like the NFL and Super Bowl organizers don’t have any money and can’t afford to pay for halftime show performances, it’s about the insatiable thirst for profits at the expense of musical entertainment and those who create it. You can find schemes like this coming from unscrupulous bar and nightclub owners, but for the NFL to descend to such depths would be unconscionable,” said AFM president Ray Hair.
