The NFL’s mistakes have been made very public in recent weeks and another one has come to the light of day. World Champion and Extra Dark Black Belt Judah Friedlander was on with Scott Shannon in the Morning to reveal another of the NFL’s blunders.

“I’m banned from the NFL,” Friedlander revealed, shocking the morning show and millions listening across the Tri-State area. “My bone structure is too solid and it makes it unfair.”

“I played varsity at DeVry for 17 years and then the NFL still wouldn’t take me,” the #1 ranked comedian in the world added.

Perhaps it is Friedlander’s imposing physicality that forced the NFL’s hand, or maybe just the 4-time 1st Team All World’s ingenuity that scared them; Friedlander was poised to change the game in a way not seen since the introduction of the forward pass.

“I was a walking back. No need to rush when you’re strong and confident and no one can tackle you,” explains the titan of comedy, later adding — what can only be a metaphor for how the youth of America should approach life — these insightful words: “Why rush? Enjoy the touchdown.”

Judah Friedlander will be at Caroline’s on Broadway starting tonight through Saturday, October 4th. Tickets and information are available at You can also pick up his best-selling book, How to Beat Up Anybody: An Instructional and Inspirational Karate Book by the World Champion on
