See that's the problem with Goodell. No one is holding him accountable. If the owners would make him responsible for his actions he'd be doing time for the coverup. He is a criminal and therefore does not need to be in charge. Even IF (and if is a big word) the Patriots did not cheat. He should not be allowed to destroy evidence,PERIOD!!! What he did was criminal. Having gotten away with that we can conclude that he feels he's above the law,that he can do and say anything he wants.
