Then we can all enjoy football the way it was 30 - 40 years ago!!!!! Roll the salaries back 30 years too!
I'd love to go to a "Real Football" game again. If I can hand start my Model T i'll be there!!
Your sarcasm might have hit it's intended mark if it had anything to do with Goodell.

Nobody is talking about 30 years ago. How about 15 years ago when you could TOUCH a receiver without being flagged? When as long as you weren't hitting the quarterback extremely late, you were alright? Now you have a specific code of ethics you have to adhere to, and must complete a QB sensitivity meeting before you are allowed to hit a QB in very limited ways. If you don't do any of that just right, you got yourself a 15 yard penalty and probably a fine.

And heaven forbid somebody wears their eye black the wrong way. Don't dare have a message for your late father written there. It's WAY too offensive. Oh, and while we're talking about player safety, let's eat a giant bowl of hypocrisy soup and try to extend the season to 18 games.

Then there's making teams travel across the ocean to play a "home game".

Let's give a guy a two game suspension for punching his fiancee, then make a rule after the fact that domestic violence is a 6 game suspension and arbitrarily extend the sentence for the guy just suspended based on a rule that didn't exist when you first suspended him. AND then suspend other players 10,12, 16 games.... whatever Roger feels like, for other domestic violence cases, even though he had just made a rule that said it was 6 games.

He rules with the integrity, common sense and consistency of a toddler. And that's probably being mean to toddlers everywhere.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Goodell has no power.
He does what the owners tell him.

Blame the owners, not Goodell.
He's their puppet.

Blame the owners, yes, but not a puppet but a monster created and out of control...

Again, do the owners tell Roger to suspend their own players and coaches for essentially no reason? I think not.

We can blame the owners for putting him in the position he's in, but Roger has taken it upon himself to become the dictator he is. If every owner had experienced what the Saints and Patriots have, you can bet Roger wouldn't have a job.

His appointment is like that of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, it's an appointment for life and it'd take more than a 2/3rd group of owners to force a no confidence vote and removal...

Exactly. People want to say the owners tell him what to do, but this guy clearly has his own interests in mind with much of what he does. The other owners won't care until their owns teams get screwed. So he just gets to keep doing what he wants.

Re: Roger Goodell - Unchecked Power

The only entity that's been able to check Goodell is the Federal Court system...which I'm not a fan...

And I'm not against a guy being able to earn, but his compensation is absolutely ridiculous for his production...
