‘SNL’ Tackles NFL Abuse Controversies With ‘Honest’ Player Introductions

Welcome to the NFL’s new era of accountability, “Saturday Night Live” style.

With the league mired in controversy over domestic violence and child abuse controversies, an “SNL’ skit featured players departing from the typical TV introductions to announce the crimes they’ve committed instead of the colleges they’ve attended.

“Treason,” “whole bunch of stuff,” and “sent a picture of my ding-dong to Michelle Obama” made the confessional lineup.

Refreshingly honest, no?

The season premiere of “SNL” tackled the NFL hard. Guest host Chris Pratt, who portrayed some of the players above, also turned in a cameo as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in the cold open sequence.
