I hope no one has posted this already, if so, I apologize for the duplicate post. I thought I should share this with you guys; very sad that we get 6 more years of him.

That is sad, yes. The guy is ruining this great game, and it seems he is determined to start with the greatest team as well:banging:

Wow. Thats just unbelieveable. I'm sure Bob Kraft rallied the troops behind the scenes to make sure it happened.
I don't there's any question. He is not doing the game any favors thats for sure. Baseball continues with the horrendous Bud Selig and football continues with the equally as bad Goodell. Just unreal.

700 yard passing games with point scores in the high 60s to low 70s. The media will act like it is all due to the greatness of the QB's and offensive coordinator geniuses....

QBs and WRs will be wearing "special shirts" that signify you can only two hand touch them.

that used to be a joke. We may see at least flags for the QB's in our lifetime. Laugh, but i'm convinced it WILL happen....if not further action that that.

I get the feeling that Goodell, Selig, and Stern all have a bet going on who can successfully ruin their sport first.

Well I guess I hate football now. Goodell is well on his way into getting defenses extinct. There will be no such thing as a great defender anymore because it seems like he is fining players for stopping the offense from scoring (HELLO! DEFENSES ARE SUPPOSED TO DO THAT GOODELL!) Not only will he tear the Steelers apart from being a great team, he is allowing Tom Brady to play into his 60's with the amount of rules that go against hitting the QB or WR (They wear pads so they should get hit hard as F***!) Goodell isn't even a good Commissioner in Madden either so how the hell should he get a 5-year extension! This is so stupid, I would rather give Obama the Commissioner job rather than this P.O.S

That sucks! I want him fired- why do the owners like this guy so much? I supposed because he's making them richer than they already are and us customers who pay the bills keep showing up. We're the only ones who can really do anything to get him out of there by stopping spending our money to see his patsy product on the field.

For some reason, the big sports leagues have chosen to go with "continuity" and leaving the heads at their helms for years and years and years. Why they think this has worked or is working now is beyond me.
Selig has ruined baseball almost beyond recognition (i STILL don't know how they make ANY money whatsoever as i can't even name one person i know that gives a rats *** about baseball.
Stern isn't much better, basketball, just 3 months ago, almost completely imploded and died.

And Goodell is the worse one of the 3. He's completely dismantling the sport.....little by little but with being steady with it. The person above is right.....They want 70-55 games and no defense at all. Problem is, in reality, thats going to be the death of this sport too. Why their f-ing with something that was by far and away the biggest and most popular sport is pure stupidity. It will be short term gain....but long term death. People will start losing interest.

I would rather put up another year of Arians than have this news. I am truly sorry for the state of this "new" NFL.

Worst news of the NFL year. He's going to mandate all quarterbacks are wrapped in bubble wrap before the games. Just awful. Whose idea was this?

THE FUTURE GNFL (GODdell National Football League)

Rome 73 Madrid 68
Tokyo 101 London 98
etc, etc.

SIGNIFICANT RULE CHANGES UNDER GODdell:
The QB cannot be touched on any play. He will be given as much time as needed to complete or not complete his pass attempt.

Rich Mckay head of the competition committee will be allowed to make any rule changes he feels
necessary to help his Atlanta Falcons win a playoff game including having no one play defense
when his offense is on the field.

If voted in players to the pro bowl are unable to participate, alternates no matter how undeserving will be selected to play as an allstar. If the alternates are unavailable then practice squad players will take their place on the pro bowl roster.

The New GNFL National Anthem will include Roger GODdell's name mentioned at least 3 times.

Anyone booing Roger GODdell at the draft, will be executed in public as a malcontent and traitor to his God.

Any player speaking out against GODdell and the GNFL will have his tongue removed and his team will be disqualified from winning the super bowl.

Rich Mckay's Atlanta Falcons will be given a Super Bowl trophy for Mckay's advancement of the game.

The First Super Bowl held in Mogadishu, Somalia (an untapped market according to GODdell)

Well, one things for sure.
There WILL be further strides and pushes (and rules) to make offenses more dominating and higher scoring and defenses less so. God knows where this is going.

The owners, that's who. He is obviously making them a ton of money and apparently that is more important than the historic fabric (defense used to count) of the NFL. They are bottom line people and he is doing just what they want, MAKE $$$$$.:noidea:

Someone (I attempted to respond to him personally to apologize but that poster does not accept PMs) legitimately has called me out today for criticizing other posters for comparing someone to Hitler and then posting the above picture of Goodell

The person is correct that my post of that picture was hypocritical and I apologize
