Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. In this episode, Matt Kelly (the coolest guy in compliance) and I take a deep dive into recent blown call in the Saints-Rams NFC. We consider the (non) response from the NFL under the rubric of internal controls.

Some of the highlights include:

  • What is risk and how should it be considered?
  • Who are the stakeholders for professional football? Who are the stakeholders for your organization?
  • Does your risk increase the closer you get to the final goal? (IE., playing for the Super Bowl)
  • If a control failure can lead to a material adverse event, shouldn’t you have a compensating control?
  • Should an organization like the NFL even care about getting it right?
