Michelle Tafoya was trotted out for a lap dog interview with Goodell on the ESPN pregame- usual party line about "there are no changes in the rules" followed by the league has constantly changed the rules for "safety" - Tafoya does not call him on that apparent inconsistency (is it a rules change or isn't it?) let alone mention whether the Collie penalty was miscalled - ESPN has completely stayed away from that call in the pregame while covering the Wade Phillips firing as if a major public figure has died

Interview with Captain Awesome Troy immediately before Goodell - Troy calmly emphasizes he is not making an "ad hominem" (Translated from Latin to English, "Ad Hominem" means "against the man" or "against the person." - first time I have heard that term on ESPN) but says the penalty review system simply is broken
