Drew Brees shares his thoughts on Gooodell with Peter King
On NFL players' attitudes to Goodell: Brees got quiet and thought for a moment, then said: "Nobody trusts him. Nobody trusts him. I'm not talking about a DUI, or using a gun in a strip club, which are pretty clear violations. I think there're too many times where the league has come to its decision in a case before calling a guy in, and the interview is just a fašade. I think now if a guy has to come in to talk to Roger, he'll be very hesitant because he'll think the conclusion has already been reached.''
Of course the Steelers figured this out a year before the rest of the players and were accused of posturing when they voted against the collective bargaining agreement because it gave Goodell unreviewable disciplinary power.
The league office can spin attacks from James Harrison as those of an ill tempered bad a** but the same thoughts coming from a QB wiith the image of Drew Brees are another matter
