1 Attachment(s)
In a move that will make the ultimate discipline applied to the players involved in the Saints bounty case even stronger, Commissioner Roger Goodell has recused himself from Tuesday’s appeal hearing.

The announcement came from NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith on Twitter.

Per Smith, Goodell will hand the baton to former Commissioner Paul Tagliabue.

Tagliabue is a good man with character unlike Godhell. If not for him then we'd be in San Antonio.

Down to proof or no proof. Then fallout from the implosion.

True, but, I doubt he's going to come in and do anything to make Roger look bad. They have the same loyalty to "The Shield".

I don't know about that. Is it really Godell that makes this move or is it the owners?

I am atleast hoping this will lead to reduced suspensions.

Good question. And now that I've thought about it a little more, Tags can come in and do whatever settles this so Roger doesn't have to admit to being wrong.

Can Tagliabue finish the season as interm commissioner?

Hopefully Tagilabue has more common sense and intelligence then Goddell does.
