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

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.

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