Former linebacker Terry Crews calls NFL ‘a cult’

Terry Crews on the red carpet at the ‘Blended’ premiere at TLC Chinese Theater in Hollywood, Calif.

Terry Crews doesn’t mince words. The actor in the flick, Blended, which is now in theaters, has an ax to grind and the NFL is taking the hit. In an interview with SI Now, Crews says, “The NFL is a cult, because you’ve been looking at this motto and this logo for your whole life and you believe in it and you’re like, ‘they wouldn’t do anything to hurt me. They never would.’ And, ‘uh oh, maybe they would.”

Crews, a former NFL linebacker for the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles, comments follows a lawsuit against the League by more than 600 players who claim doctors and trainers issued  painkillers and other drugs without a prescription and without warning of side effects, so the players could remain in the gmae, but have resulted in serious complications later in life.

He adds, “There is this thing where the team kind of looks at [itself] as your father. And it’s kind of weird, because it’s like ‘You’d do this for the team, right?’
