Why shouldn't Goodell get fined??

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; So... who holds Goodell accountable for his mistakes??? He fines coaches, referees and players for their mistakes. It's about time somebody fines his stupid a$$ for his idiotic handling of the bounty case. Yes, I know I'm being a bit ...

Yes, I know I'm being a bit sarcastic here - I guess he won't fine himself. But seriously, some type of punishment should be administered.

Re: Why shouldn't Goodell get fined??

This whole situation with having to bring in Tagliabue should show that he is inept and incapable of being the commissioner. His new title should be "Former NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell". However, it will probably just been seen as a "whoopsie" and this SOB will still be in charge for years to come.

Exactly - unfortunately i think you're totally right.
Coaches and players don't trust this guy. Its obvious that his only agenda is about the bottom line and protecting the league from lawsuits. The guy operates from a position of fear so he rules like a dictator. What a coward.

Re: Why shouldn't Goodell get fined??

Goodel should not be fined, he should be flat out fired. His actions were arbitratry and capricious. Tag's statement, though protective of the NFL as expected, clearly states that the punishment that Goodel handed out to the players was excessive and not consistent with the "crime" or prior NFL actions.

In short, Goodel's actions, including the way he managed the situation and associated press releases and statement were not in the "best interest of the game."

If I owned a company where an senior officer mismanaged a major issue to the extent that this has been, he would be terminated. That still may happen but I think that the owners will likely wait until the smoke has cleared on the entire issue. So, expect any action to occur after the 2013 Superbowl. If nothing happens and Goodel keeps his job, then he obviously has evidence against the league regarding the head injury issue and is blackmailing them.

I am saying exactly what you said when you said "he wont get fined seriously"...

1. There is no one to fine him.
2. CEOs dont get fined.
3. There is no vehicle to fine him through.


The actual realistic action that "should" happen is that the Owners should hold him accountable for "conduct detrimental to the league" for making this personal which he admitted to (not in words) when he recused him self.

What SHOULD happen is that this off season he is replaced. But you and I will not see that happen in that framing. What we would see is that he would be told by the owners to step down for his own personal reasons, but that would entail him being given compensation for that... His contract with the NFL has a crap load of protections for him.

However Goodell has all he needs to shirk most of the blame, NFL lawyers vetted and advised on each and every one of his actions.

Re: Why shouldn't Goodell get fined??

One wonders if Roger can run the league in good faith anymore. It's not a stretch at all to say the players have no faith in him. It is clear that his agenda far out weighs whatever blocks it, and it is also clear that collateral damage is a mere afterthought.

I doubt he'll be fired, but he absolutely SHOULD be.

Goodell is employed by the owners, no player faith is needed.


People thought I was nuts in regards to my conspiracy theory. Goodell will not be punished because he was preforming the OWNERS deeds.
