    Just look at the extreme drop off in player thug activities just this year alone. Goodell is doing a great job, and is very proactive in making the league better in whichever way he can.

    He's a great commissioner.
    whats player thug activities? is that like starting a meth lab?

      How about quit being so self-important because it was your team that cheated and realize that this is something that affects all 32 teams, since it's an integrity of the game issue (all teams are going to lose fans if the integrity of the game can't be trusted), and the NFL won't only be conducting these inspections on the Patriots. That doesn't mean they'll find anything anywhere, but it's still a newsworthy item. Goodell is urging the competition committee to change the rules so that the integrity of the game isn't violated again. What's not to like about that?


      The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

      If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

        I also think this is a great move by the Commish, although hopefully he doesn't hurt the integrity of the league and the league office by doing ridiculous favors for certain people when their franchise is caught, like he did with Robert Kraft in the Spygate brouhaha. (Funny how we haven't heard Matt Walsh talk yet, btw.)

        And hey, if the Colts are cheating, I hope they're caught. My feelings are league-wide: don't friggin' cheat.

        The big thing the league needs now is a test for HGH. I'd like to see how super those San Diego Super-Chargers are then ...
        Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.

          im tellin you, HGH is a league problem, not just the chargers. the day we get a test for HGH, expect to see a rather large change in the league. players will get smaller, and injuries will increase 10fold across the board.

          i don't think we should ban HGH, but there should be restrictions. its actually very useful when used as a healer.

              Realistically, they all cheat in one way or another and if it is brought up every day for the next 2 years and the NFL sees their TV revenue affected negatively, I'm sure the owners will love him.
              And proud of it!!!

                So because Shawne Merriman tested positive for nandralone and Rodney Harrison said he had been doing it after he left the Chargers, the Chargers have an HGH problem? And they're the only team?

                    How do you know that every team cheats? Do you have any proof? If not, it's a baseless shot at 31 teams. It doesn't matter how many people say everyone cheats, until there's proof, it's only fair to assume innocence.

                        I could have started a new thread about other league-wide memos that resulted in multiple violations of said memo, but chose not to. But I know, all you "rational" lemmings are on board the "tampering is OK" train.

                        So whatev. This rule is in place for E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y, and that fact has nothing to do with one team getting busted...

                            You and I couldn't agree with each other more on that.

                              See, here's the difference: I don't do that, whereas you have to post something trying to defend your precious Patriots on any thread that contains the word "cheat". Do you run a daily search for it? I'll openly admit I dislike the Patriots, not shocking coming from a Colts fan, but I don't go around any time I see a Patriots thread and post something negative about Spygate or their 2007 season or any number of other things that could detract from the original discussion, which seems to be your primary and perhaps sole goal of posting in these threads. I guess you figure if you agitate and annoy enough, people will stop talking about it, when in reality all you're doing is stoking the fire. If you see a topic you don't like, why bother looking at it?

                              If you can PROVE that someone tampered with another team's free agents (more than an article suspecting it will be required), then I'd be all for that team getting the appropriate punishment. That, however, has absolutely no relevance here whatsoever, as this is a discussion about Goodell urging the competition committee to take measures that would make cheating far more difficult in the league, and considering how much whining you do about teams cheating in threads like that have the word "cheat" in them, I'd think it would be something you'd be quite interested in discussing...unless of course you have some alterior motive behind your constant complaining about teams cheating...

                              Hey, you finally got a general idea of what this thread is about, congratulations!

                                There are so many reported cases of cheating with a lot of HC's admitting they did it that only a fool would think 31 teams are innocent. The NFL just hasn't taken the time to go after cheaters because it had become part of the game.
                                You don't really think HC's sending in signals cover their mouths or have people shield them with towels because they bewlieve 31 teams don't cheat do you???
