Re: It's Official: Goodell hates the Steelers
The sad reality of the situation is that we're reduced to arguing what is or isn't a fine-able offense which has taken away from the game considerably. Goodell and his cronies are levying these penalties, fines and suspensions basically as a CYA to prevent the NFL from getting sued into bankruptcy in the future, IMO. No way he can say he's doing it to protect the players but then propose an 18-game season in the next breath.
As for saying Goodell hates the Steelers.....that kind of talk is strictly reserved for Ravens fans. They have a copyright on "the refs, Goodell and the NFL hates us" talk.
