Roger Goodell never complained to Mark Wahlberg about ‘Ballers’

Last week, actor Mark Wahlberg joined “Mike & Mike” and talked about the hit HBO show “Ballers” and how tough it was to get NFL players to appear on the show. He claimed that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had complained about having players go on, but now that doesn’t seem to hold any truth to it.

On Sunday afternoon, NFL communications Senior Vice President Natalie Ravitz took to Twitter to respond to Wahlberg’s allegations. She said that there was simply no truth behind what he claimed.

Love Marky Mark (good vibrations is a classic) but this call from @nflcommish never happened @Deadspin

This never really seemed to hold any merit to it anyway and now it has only been confirmed. Roger Goodell has had much bigger things to worry about the last few months, like fighting an appeals battle with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, which he and the NFL won and finally put an end to the Deflategate Saga last week.

Let’s hope that “Ballers” will see even more NFL players making an appearance over the next few months.
