Re: Another NFL lawsuit - From their Insurance Company

Many of us have been preaching against Roger, even since before all this bounty nonsense, because his method is hard handed and he leads as if he is beyond reproach. I think it's pretty clear Roger does NOT know what is in the best interest of the league. He seems to think slapping players with fines and suspensions and proclaiming that the NFL cares about safety is enough. He's been doing this since his first Congressional hearing and his mantra hasn't changed.

His failure, in my opinion, is his arrogance and his inability to see this is about people as much as it is about money. The NFL was far too heavy-handed when dealing with the players during the negotiations for the latest CBA. The leagues insistence that Roger remain all-powerful is evidence of it's agenda in my opinion.

The NFL had the opportunity to do the right thing a long time ago and might even have reached some sort of settlement with the players and their lawsuit but instead, under Roger's guidance, has chosen the cover-up and catch-up route, but it's far more transparent than he ever imagined, because he too damned arrogant to see it.

For the sake of the NFL and for the game we all love, Roger simply must go. Every time he acts it seems to blow up in his face. At some point (and I think we're beyond it), this trend becomes a real problem and the owners are simply going to HAVE to act. Sooner rather than later is my take...

Re: Another NFL lawsuit - From their Insurance Company

Do the owners vote yearly or how does his "term" in office work?

He just got a contract extension through March 2019. No terms were disclosed.

Believe me, if the HEAT gets too hot, and the NFL needs to save face because it's FACE-MAN RG made too many power plays, they can FIRE HIM!

Remember, he's just the front man for the owners who are the real financial backers behind the NFL. So keep the HEAT COMING!

If they don't fire him before 2019, I guess we'll see just how powder-puff Roger can make the NFL

I agree with Halo. He can be fired and with as many fires as the NFL has burning right now, you know there are at least one or two owners that can't be pleased with the way things are going.

The refs strike might seem like no big deal right now but if it keeps up during the regular season, the average viewer will have the impression that he's getting a lower quality product than he's used to. That's why the memo was sent out NOT to talk about how bad the replacements are doing. Every percentage point of people NOT watching or buying merchandise is potentially millions of dollars. The refs claim this can all be settled for 1.5 million dollars annually. Goodell is playing a game of chicken with the owners money. If he wins, well that's what he's paid to do.

If Goodell loses the Vilma case, it will weaken the power the NFL has in the CBA by allowing all players, that get a serious punishment from the commissioner, the chance to sue in court. And lets the government into NFL matters, no way the owners want that. Not to mention Goodell will come off looking like a total jackwagon after his personal, and very public, which hunt in New Orleans of Saints players. It will definitely undermine his, and his offices, credibility in the future.

2,000 former players are suing the NFL. The commissioner is responsible to lessen the financial impact to the owners. If there can't be a deal worked out and a court rules in favor of the players, and awards a huge dollar amount, then, I'm sure, in the eyes of most of the owners, Goodell didn't do his job. And now the insurance company's suit could lead to the owners taking complete liability for the concussion lawsuits. They have the potential of losing Billions of dollars.

You know his bosses have to be keeping close tabs on how these things play out.
