I like this:

Benson Meets with Goodell on New Orleans Saints Mistreatment: Fan Reaction - Yahoo! Sports

As much as the gridlock of American politics aggravates me, Roger Goodell is a clear example of why a dictatorship would be far worse. Thus far, the NFL's only defense in Vilma's court case has been that the CBA grants Goodell autonomy in these matters. But does the CBA give him the right to levy any penalty he wants to?

Tom Benson met with Goodell at a time when one must wonder how much more criticism he can handle. Benson's meeting may convince Goodell to drop the Saints player suspensions before Judge Berrigan embarrasses the NFL in court.

I honestly don't think Roger Goodell knew what he was getting himself into. Like everyone in New Orleans, Tom Benson is a fighter. New Orleans withstood much worse than this in 2005 and came back even stronger. Benson and the Saints may be on the verge of a bigger victory than Super Bowl 44.

I think this is Benson lobbying and saying, "okay, Roger, you have stretched the facts about what we both know happened, and you've said a bunch of *** about my team, and you better have written a check with your words that your --- can cash, because if your statements come back NSF in court with Vilma then I will personally call in the other owners in for a vote and they will BURY you."
I guarantee you he could get Rooney and JJ on board. From what I hear they can't stand the mother ****er. The Maras probably hate him too. Owners don't get any more respected than that. I would love for this to come crashing down on top of him.

Re: Benson meeting with Goodell...

With the insurance company bailed on Roger, things seems even more interesting. I wonder if the owners would consider making roger the fall guy in some kind of deal to accommodate the player lawsuits...

Yeah, I'm dreaming, and I usually dream of Zooey, but she's knows I'm passionate on this particular issue so she's cool with it...

Send Zooey to seduce Roger and give him herpes.

Or blow him and bite his junk off
