The way I read it is that the NFLPA has decided this "could" be an issue.... not that the NFL or Goodell has stated there might be criminal charges.

The NFLPA has not elaborated on what grounds there might be criminal charges. Sounds like a bunch of over speculation to me.

The NFLPA needs to STOP giving people ideas.

Ha! Maybe they will all be tried under RICO with Gotti.

This is a complete joke. Goodell, way to go. I blame you for starting this whole bunch of crap. By the way I cancelled my Nfl sunday ticket. Screw Goodell, and the money grubbing NFL. I will watch the games for free over the internet.
Do you think I'm going to pay full price to watch this crap, players and coaches suspended. Your the judge and jury make up rules as you see fit? How is this fair for us the fans who pay for this crap.
SCREW YOU ROGER, thanks for everything

I agree at this point it's only a 'could be' issue and that the NFLPA is just covering bases, but...

I am 1000 % in favor of it, even if it's over the top. The NFL has blown this whole thing way out of proportion and everyone else has to prepare accordingly, even if it's just for show.

Cancelling Sunday Ticket doesn't affect the NFL in any way. It only hurts Directv who pays the NFL to broadcast it. It also hurts you having to watch a grainy broadcast as opposed to HD.

This might be true, but screw them all, all official nfl products. No more Nfl jerseys, hats any of that from me. I know it dosent mean a damn thing in the big picture. It's a personal stand for me.
Also so what if direct is paying them. They wont get any of my money. If I must watch it from a grainy laptop. So be it.

This is absolutely absurd. Better yet, disgusting. Pretty soon blitzing is going to be against the rules.

I hope when hiring counsel some minorities were interviewed. Don't want to mess with the sanctity of the Rooney rule

If they get criminal charges that will be it fomr me. Football is a contact sport which bounties have been around since the 70's. I just don't know if I could support the NFL by watching or tickets with Goodell continuing to be in charge.
