The Commissioner of the National Football League rarely gets talked to in the way he got talked to today.

On Monday Goodell got an earful from lawyer Peter Ginsberg in the initial session of the bounty hearings.

As set forth below, Ginsberg accused Goodell of failing to conduct a fair process and distorting facts, calling the proceedings “shocking and shameful.” Multiple sources tell PFT that Ginsberg’s remarks were “heated,” and one source present at the session perceived that Goodell’s face turned red during Ginsberg’s rant.

Sounds like the law suits are beginning to take their toll.

Very convicing argument especially this:

“Your office leaked to the press a couple weeks ago a supposed ledger which theoretically provided evidence of a bounty program,” Ginsberg said. “And when the media analyzed this supposed ledger, it became clear [apparently] even to the NFL office that since no players were identified in that supposed ledger, there was no tying of that ledger to any way to a bounty program. You have chosen after airing it out publicly not even to include that ledger in the documents you provided in an untimely fashion with regard to this proceeding.”

It's becoming more clear that there is no concrete evidence. Nothing that can prove without a doubt it existed and that's what a Judge is going to look at.

GOODELL SHOULD BE EMBARRASSED FOR TRYING TO RUN A BUSINESS LIKE A DICTATORSHIP AND DARING TO RUN A HEARING LIKE A KANGAROO COURT IN FRONT OF A PLAYER AND A SEASONED ATTORNEY!

THIS MAY END UP BEING A QUAGMIRE FOR THE NFL AND CHANGE THE WAY THEY DO BUSINESS FOREVER.

ALSO, YOU CAN BOOK IT THE NFLPA WILL NEVER GIVE THE NFL THE POWER OF ARBITRATION IN DISPUTES AGAIN! IF THERE'S ANOTHER CBA, THE COMMISH WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO HAND OUT SUSPENSIONS AND DISCIPLE EVER AGAIN.
