How would you define it? I would define it as setting the law down on player behavior.

I was going to say something along the lines of hard-nosed and doesn't take any garbage, but that will do.

I think he's doing well, I think the heavy handedness is needed, a lot of the guys getting in trouble are still fairly young, they're still immature.

He's a aight commish, but to me it seems like he's trying to do too much too fast. and i definitely don't like the idea of the super bowl in another country.

At first I didn't like him, but as long as he doesn't take it to a David Stern level, I support what he is doing.

His player conduct policy is the greatest thing since the forward pass.

I like him because he does all the things that seem so obvious, which a lot of other commissioners don't do. I like him even more because he is starting talk about shortening the time between draft picks, very nice, and very due. I like what he is doing.

I think Goodell is doing the "new teacher" thing right now. He has his agenda, and he's coming out really tough because he wants the "students" (players, agents, coaches, media) to take him seriously. As time goes by, he will stay stern, but now that he has attention and respect, he can ease off a little. I think he's playing his hand beautifully. I like the implementation of the player-conduct policy. I'm not a fan of the international games at all. There are too many logistical issues, and it's not good for the players to have to do these transatlantic flights for the glory of the NFL's next TV contract. The 17th game/international flavor is just silly.

I love what Goodell is doing. He's cleaning up Tagliabue's mess. Tagliabue created this monster, and Goodell is taking the proper steps to destroy it. Love him as a commish so far. He's a much more active commish than Tags was so far. Everything, not just player behavior.

His ideas of shortening the draft, how he brought Brady Quinn in his lounge when Tags left Rodgers to dry in the public eyes during the draft, his ideas of expanding the NFL etc. Much more proactive.

i wouldn't he is a improvement over tagliabue, but then again it would be hard to top what he did, he is at least on par with him right now and i'm fine with that

The shortening of the draft is something I was going to mention actually. I think it will be beneficial in the long run for everyone should this actually happen. The Brady thing was a nice PR stunt for him I guess as well.

Considering where I am from I actually wouldn't like him to move the SuperBowl and would be a bit disappointed for the Americans if he did. The fact of the matter is it would be like moving a soccer final here over the US.

Overall I have been pretty impressed. His tough stance on problem players and the potential ramifications he could have on the draft mean the future of the NFL is looking better than ever.

defined by one quote:

"goodell don't play that ****"

i think he's actually done a solid job, i agree with most of the suspensions, but not the yearly one. doesn't that give him more time to do nothing with his life, and cause a higher risk for something else to happen. i agree with suspending him but, definitely not the whole season.

Im liking Goodell honestly, he is taking a hard line on off-field problems, something I am not a fan of, but hes doing it the right way. Hes meeting with the players personally and still treating them with respect.

Goodell is handling a lot of different issues. I think he should focus on the strength of the game in domestic markets before he goes overboard with overseas games. Teams like the Bills are having issues filling their stadium and making enough money to compete. He should be focusing on new ways for them to realize revenues. He should also consider more funding to get teams in need new stadiums.
