Roger Goodell: Approve or No?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Its not up to us or the players to approve. He answers to the owners. I still think he's doing the right thing for 90% of the owners. Pending litigation is the dark cloud that may destroy the NFL completely. ...

Re: Roger Goodell: Approve or No?

Its not up to us or the players to approve. He answers to the owners.

I still think he's doing the right thing for 90% of the owners.

Pending litigation is the dark cloud that may destroy the NFL completely. I'm sure the owners are OK with a few over-reactions and minor little silly rule tweaks on his part to protect their image.

Notice that all the hate is directed at him, not the owners. Goodell is their devil on a leash and he's doing what most of the owners wanted to begin with.

Re: Roger Goodell: Approve or No?

I never aproved from the onset. Though I agree with Dano's obsevations. I never believed he was competent from how he handled the Spy Gate Patriots incendent.
Like us, what they were doing was wide spread, and it could have been kept out of the press and handled quitely.
Instead he did exactly what he did to the saints to satisfy his own ego. Rush to judgement, no real research, and jump on the podium to get the lime light.
He is just not competent or mature enouph to be a commissioner of the NFL.

and though hes doing what the owners want, hes not and never has been, the man for the job.

I had this thought for a moment as well but then I thought, how do you suspend a coaching staff and 4 players quietly? This was carefully orchestrated. They did exactly what they intended to do. Make the sheep follow and believe everything that comes out of there mouth. I just don't think they calculated some sheep breaking from the herd and challenging the authority.

You do it quietly by NOT suspending a coaching staff and four players. You drop some fines, stay away from press conferences and move on.

I hear ya but then he couldn't have made it a specticle like he did. They did it this way for a reason. We all know why. If there were no lawsuits, I believe things would have been done differently.

Re: Roger Goodell: Approve or No?

Why I disapprove?

Look at how he has run the NFL when it comes to fines and suspensions......

Lets look at this:

Patriots = Spygate, (REAL CHEATING) = 500k fine was it? stripped of a 1st rd pick?

Saints = Bounty (never proven) = Suspension of coach for 1 entire season and 4 players.

It gets better.

Dante Stallworth = Suspended entire season for Killing a man.


Why did I bring up these 3 incidents?

Look at the penalty levied.

#1 Saints fined and suspend Head Coach for year, Assistant coach for 6 games.

#2 Dante Stallworth suspended for 1 year for killing a person while drunk.

#3 Patriots fined and stripped of 1st rd pick for Cheating.


Saints got the harsher penalty for something not proven, apparently how Roger Goodell has put this together is that.

#1 Cheating matters none in the NFL.

#2 Bounty system unproven is just as bad as killing someone while drunk.

This bull crap continues to happen with players and teams.


#1 is not taken seriously, thus teams like the Ravens, 49ers, Steelers, to name 3 teams off the bat can get by with just about anything they want in the NFL.

I approve of kicking Goodell in the nuts if that helps.
