Goodell has a monopoly on NFL commisioning.
There's got to be a law against that.

Smith... You want to know where all of these accusations are coming from?


Pay Greg Williams a visit... presently he is the only one to gain from "cooperating" with the NFL's investigation. He KNOWS that to not cooperate with Goodell means he will never stand on the side lines of an NFL game again...

Catch is that once the players find out, he will have one hell of a time finding a team that wants him or players that are willing to play for him.

Williams is in a bad spot... being banished aside, he is the ONLY one with first hand knowledge of 100% of the program with in the Saints. He is the only one that stands to NOT lose from more truth coming out, his verdict and punishment has been levied and the only way back into the NFL is to get in Goodells good graces, the only way to do that is to roll over.

Cooperation makes him a rat, and not cooperating means Goodell will NEVER allow him back into the NFL.

Maybe GW just becomes an analyst, takes the bullet for the players.
He can't win in the "turning league evidence" scenerio.
The coaches had to tuck tail, but the players are in a stronger position.

The thing that really needs to hammered into peoples heads is that these guys were doing what they've been conditioned to believe is their job. And it's been pounded into their heads since they kids. Now some megalomaniac is taking millions of dollars from them and their families. And when they retire and suffer lifelong health problems as a result of sacrificing their bodies for the NFL the league will turn their backs on them.

He IS the only one, and Roger Goodell effectively shut him up didn't he?

Yes he did... Greg is now Goodells jack-in-the-box. He stays in the box untill RG turns his crank.

My gut tells me Goodell is playing nice with the NFLPA for now. The NFLPA is going to make public threats etc... and Goodell knows that. When the day comes that the NFLPA decides to take this higher is when Goodell will call DeMaurice Smith and whisper to him "shut it down now or you will have more than 4 suspensions to deal with, I am sitting on a Pandora's Box of evidence consisting of testimony, emails, and a whole slew of crap the "FBI" uncovered." "What I have will not only shed light on many more players, but will also look good in court as defense against concussion suits. It will show the players had a rogue (non sanctioned) program that hurt other players intentionally, thus freeing the league from any culpability".

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
