Less practice and less recovery is the recipe for an inferior product. Roger is not taking into account players that had to be benched because they were not ready. Play those players and the injuries go up. Those starters out and the quality goes down. Just looking at it from quanatative injury data is flawed to say the least.

This is where Roger has failed:

1. Applying data
2. Making gut calls

A good leader knows when to use numbers and when you don't. This is one of those cases. The players told him the replacement refs would not work out. They told him his bounty evidence was false. They are telling him to ditch the Thurs game. They are begging him. He refuses to listen to anything they have to say.

I have the uncanny ability to not shoot the messenger. Regardless of who the messenger is, the message maintains its validity.

Re: Goodell says Thursday football doesn’t put players at risk

Roger says there is no evidence that Thursday games put players at more risk. You'd think the man on the quest to rid football of all its ills would err on the side of caution.

Bang the hell out of people in a game situation on Sunday, then come back and do it again 4 days later rather than 7 days later. Hmmmm...

Because ... The NFL was founded by, and continues on as a profit business. Roger is trying to make money....

I sincerely doubt that RG him self has done any of the grunt work concerning Thursday Night games. That's all done through a research firm.

Re: Goodell says Thursday football doesn’t put players at risk

What Thursday games do is actually water downs the talent you see on the field. I'll try to look it up tonight but if someone else wants to research it, look and see how many starters sat out of a Thursday game after being dinged in a Sunday game. I'll bet it's at least 10 starters that missed games.

Then what does he do exactly? The way I understand the title is he is supose to be more of a wedge between the players and the owners. He is supose to entertain their thoughts and concerns at a bare minimum. He never does. I don't even get why he explains decesions because he will ignore all other points of view. He has changed the title to one that is always based on financial considerations when you simply can't do that all the time. The refs are a prime example.
