Darren Rovell contributed to the 30-for-30 documentary “Broke”, and also wrote about the NFLPA Financial Advisory Program. The NFLPA was not happy with some inaccuracies put out by Rovell (some of which have been corrected in the written piece) and published a “letter to the editor” on its own website.
After going through its list of inaccuracies, the NFLPA pointed out that they had worked with ESPN in providing fact checking information on the Financial Advisory Program months earlier. “Despite these efforts, though, we were disappointed to see the flippant, inaccurate comments made by this media personality in the film. When it comes to the NFLPA, Rovell has a track record of bad analysis and uninformed opinion.”
Rovell responded by calculating how much NFLPA spokesman George Atallah earns per minute that it took for the NFLPA to write that piece, and then tweeted it out as a piece of very meaningful information.*
