No reason to bash Goodell over this stuff anymore. Can't blame the dude for covering his and the owners asses when thousands of former players are coming forward and suing the league because they didn't know that "football is a violent, and dangerous occupation".

Goddell has no business running the NFL. He is a suit, someone who used to get stuffed into lockers

Your opinion on the man is noted.

Former players sue the league and you don't expect changes?  Really?  Also I'm pretty certain the fine money does not go to the NFL but is charitable... I'll have to find a link for that... Blame the players filing lawsuit after lawsuit before you blame the commissioner..

    Exactly. Follow the $$$, folks, if you want to know where some of these rules are really springing from...
    The big problem with that rule along with so many others is the impossibility of the refs to get the calls even reasonably consistantly right, and I don't doubt they are being told if you even THINK you saw it, throw the flag...

You think that is bad ? Look what he did to Teddy Bridgewater:






Florida Gators baby , that's just how we roll.  Ask RUnole about it , he mad .

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

I mentioned that already.

As for the money going to charity...I have heard of that before in regards to some fines. Not sure a out all of them. Perhaps the fine money can go to engineers who design better, lightweight Kevlar type equipment that has better blunt force dispersion. It exists somewhere in someone's mind. Just have to pay those guys...

I still think the money should go to the victim of the vicious hit.

That hit actually is illegal and I'm all for taking that crap out of the game. What he did to that receiver was not the same.

That's not even tackling. That's just assault.

sounds like helmet to helmet


Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?

He pretty clearly led with the shoulder there.
