      John Lynch: Goodell's reputation 'has taken a hit,' league getting 'sloppy' FOX SportsAUG 05, 2015 5:23p ET lynch_zpsrzvxtbnw.pngvideo linkThings looked so promising when Roger Goodell took over as NFL commissioner in 2006. NFL on FOX analyst John Lynch remembers that time well, saying the tenure of previous league commish Paul Tagliabue had grown stale."[Goodell] was a breath of fresh air," Lynch said during an appearance on "America's Pregame" on FOX Sports 1 on Wednesday.Fast-forward to the present and Goodell finds himself wrapped up in the Deflategate controversy with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. As a court case looms, Lynch says the issue has shifted from being a black eye on the Patriots organization to one that has started to make the league look bad."[Goodell] has taken a hit perception-wise because he kinda came in like John Wayne and didn't really care about precedent," Lynch told "APG" host Peter Schrager.Goodell's approach is in stark contrast to Tagliabue, who in Lynch's view made every decision based on precedent. And while Goodell was able to make his new attitude work early in his tenure, things have started to slip, despite his good intentions."When you don't operate on precedent, things can get sloppy," Lynch said. ". . . The last couple of offseasons have been sloppy."

      With Ray Rice and AD Peterson and Hardy etc he waffled on some  due to PC pressure for even stiffer penalties. The Brady issue so far he has done the right thing. If he reduces penalties on Brady his reputation will take even a bigger hit both in the PC world and 31 other teams. JMOTom Brady is not bigger than the league and IMO he has really ruined his reputation with his silliness.  He got caught with his hand in the cookie jar and is still trying to convince the world that those cookie crumbs all over his face don't exist. DUMB!

      There really are only three options for the ole commish, and only one of them is positive for his future career with the NFL.  If he stands firm and wins in court, he might be hated by some fans, (heck he is booed every year at the draft anyways) or he can stand firm and lose or he can make a deal.  If its a deal, Brady wont accept anything less then no suspension and no admission of guilt. So if the Commish losses in court and caves to Brady, I think the owners will turn on him.  It won’t be quick, but someone time after the SB, don’t be surprised if Rodger resigns with a nice golden parachute.  Because if he does lose and remains as the commish, every decision he makes will be challenged to the ultimate degree. The owners certainly do not want that.

      The owners wouldn't even consider him talking like that. Given the fact Goodell has generated over $1.5 billion in revenue good luck getting him out of the chair in your lifetime.

      Owners won't turn on him for squat. He's making them money hand over fist to the tune of $1.5 BILLION extra per year and increasing every year! The NFL is a BUSINESS #1 which most fans forget or overlook.

      They haven't proven Brady did anything wrong. It's a bunch of horse$hit. Goodel just does what he wants without any precedent.

      Not all from Rodger.  Heck I bet a monkey could take over and keep the cash flowing.  Rodger is nothing special and can be replaced. What owners can't allow is to lose authority over players and that is what is happening.

      El Diablo, they DONT have to prove he (Brady) did anything wrong. Given the rulebook when it comes to punishment for hurting the “integrity of the game”, which has clearly been done, all they need is “more probable than not”. Thats what was found, that he more probably than not was aware of what was going on. Therefor, the commish, as much as I hate him, has every right to punish him and his team with a suspension and fines. Brady’s a smug, cocky, cheating a$$hole who places himself above everyone else. Always has been, and its why Ive always hated him. He sold his soul to become arguably the best of all time, and now the devils calling in his debt to the tune of his reputation being destroyed. Cant wait to watch it all unfold and watch him plummet. Dude has no class.
