With headlines flying around about the NFL allegedly instituting a pay-to-play policy for the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show, the British band You Me At Six has put out an offer to the league.

The band outlined the offer in the following letter:

Dear NFL:

We're sorry to hear that you're in such dire financial straits. While Coldplay and Rihanna mull your offer, we're here to help with a multi-tiered proposal:

  1. For $2 million: We get to play the upcoming halftime show.
  2. For $10 million, one of us gets to quarterback a set of downs for the team of our choosing.
  3. For $40 million, the Super Bowl will be played with English football rules, where you must use your feet, and an actual ball.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts once you've had a chance to review.  We welcome any of the Super Bowl committee to attend one of our upcoming American concerts. Our tour kicks off Sept. 15th at The Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA.

 

Warmly,

You Me At Six
(Josh, Dan, Max Chris, Matt)

You Me At Six will be playing here in Grand Rapids at The Stache (front room of the Intersection) on Oct. 10. Tickets are available at sectionlive.com.
