Roger Goodell: Approve or No?

Part of me likes that he's trying to prevent the NFL from becoming an organization of thugs. But another part of me thinks that he has too much power and legislates morality with a holier than thou attitude. Do you overall approve or not approve of his leadership and the decisions that he's made concerning the major issues (i.e. fines on players for hits, Aaron Pryor case, Starcaps, Jim Tressell case, etc).

I like most of what he's done, just not all.

I'm OK with the fines. The players wanted a safer NFL, and they're getting exactly what they asked for.

I think his approval rating was very high before the lockout. Since then it's dipped some. I'm still undecided about him being judge jury and executioner.
I think he's doing a fine job of keeping a good image for the NFL.

I approve. Much of what he has done is frustrating, but I'm (a) easily frustrated and (b) does anybody really think some other guy would do much different/better?

I agree with his goals, I don't agree with his authoritarian methodology. If he had a more transparent, democratic process with room for appeal, then I would totally approve.

No to much power for one guy and when the player asked him to delegate some of his power to other people. He flat out said no. Didn't even think about it. And to answer b I think Strato would do a much better job lol. Maybe Papz.

I approve. The NFL is a brand. It makes lots of money for everyone involved. Of course the players don't like being disciplined. They are wealthy and have been told from an early age how special and grand they are. They naturally feel they are above the law. They are not. On the player safety issue, there's no way the players were going to make the game safer themselves. Someone had to step in. Sooner or later the way the game was headed, with the size and speed of todays players, someone was literally going to be killed on the field. Fines for helmet to helmet hits and launching at other players had to be high to get the point across. However, there is one thing I'm not a fan of and it's how the penalities are being enforced against "defenseless recievers." I've seen too many plays where the ball and defender arrived very close together where no helmet to helmet or launching took place and the defender was still penalized. That's football. Hopefully, they will address it as the season goes along or in the offseason the same way they stopped penalizing defenders when the QB's head was barely touched or grazed during a play.
