Yeah the referee debacle was the worst of it.
Goodell also seems to personally attack certain players. His treatment of Jonathon Vilma and James Harrison has been atrocious. (Harrison's fine for hitting Drew Brees comes to mind).
Also, Roethlisberger getting suspended for 4 games without being convicted of any crime was bs.
Basically, Goodell is stealing his ideas from the CFL (possible 18 game season, bigger field proposal, changed kickoff and overtime rules) while arbitrarily imposing harsh punishments on "problem" players.
