When the league and player negotiations come around again he had to be strong and direct. If he was letting these pisants get off with all of these crimes he wouldn't have the leverage to do that. He isn't taking **** from anyone so when negotiations come around he can just say i don't dig it fix the damn contract and it will be done.

side note. he's shaking things up. i wish other people who are in power of different entities would change things also.

all he cares about is making money instead of trying to make the game better. the 17th game is dumb. moving the superbowl to another country, thats dumb. hell i even think shortening the draft is dumb. he just wants to make money off it so he's trying to make the draft primetime. personally if i was an owner i would want 15minutes to pick whoever i'm going to pay millions to and can possibly set the franchise back 4 years. i dont think the draft should be catered to casual fans just kuz goodell wants more money.

Too strict, or maybe it's because he is using pacman as an example. I don't know if it is right to suspend someone for a season who has never been convicted of anything, or suspend them at all.

Is coming off as very power hungry. Concerning himself far to much in things other than football.

Suspensions are bad, I will always feel that way, how long until we get a ridiculous situation like the NBA has just had with Amare and Diaw? Goodell is being far to heavy handed and brash with his decisions, needs to be far more calculated.

You cant just suspend guys for being associated with a crime. Otherwise he better get started on half the league. May as well start with Marshawn Lynch who was accused of a crime. Absolutely have to go with innocent until proven guilty.

All that said, if he is going to act like he has with Pacman he must stay consistent. Which means that guys like Tank Johnson, who have actually committed a crime, need to get at least a year and a half. If accusation = 1 year, guilty should = 2 years. It wont though, this is always the problem with an overbearing and over involved commissioner they rule on everything and you lose all consistency and common sense, just like Stern has in the NBA and the end result is the league loses more credibility than one player could ever do, just like the NBA.

The NFL is the wild west with hoodlums, thugs, and their posse. There is a new sheriff in town and his name is Roger Goodell. He is taking back the streets for the law abiding citizens of the NFL.

It's the NFL, not the Bloods and Crypts.

Too strict? Gimme me a break.

When you continually abuse your privileges like Adam Jones has you deserve a kick in the ass. Playing this sport is a privilege, not a right.

Yup. And that's what Goodell is saying to the league.

I just think he is involving himself in the personal lives of the players to much. When has an employer ever imposed a curfew on its employees?
