Roger Goodell: Approve or No?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I didn't like his stance during the lockout. He was all about the owners only. As a commish, he should've been representing us and the players as well. We wouldn't have even seen a lockout with a real commissioner....

So he can be a bit of a dick (can I say that?) - Oh well.

I would like to see a third party group/committee that had in mind what was best for the game & the fans. (I know - no way in this world or the next. But it is a nice thought - like Congress actually accomplishing something)

The less Big Government does, the better off we'll all be.

A do-nothing congress would be a dream come true.

Goodell is a good commissioner; part of the problem was that Tagliabue gave way too much to the union so that he could maintain his "record" rather than what was best for the league...Goodell just took the position of moving things back to the middle...

Which by the way was the original intent, but whenever congress want power it doesn't have it just votes itself a new law granting itself that power. And we just sit back and watch it happen.

I really like him. Cleaning up the leauges image is very important. I think he has the apropriate powers since really he is the power of the 32 owners combined.

I like what he stands for and what he's trying to do... but I'm starting to question the logic of how he's doing it.
