If-so, Larry Csonka would be having his pension checks sent to Ms. Goodell's office indefinitely

I'm not too sure about this comment. Realize that this is the same NFL (commish) that destroyed the spygate tapes, told vick to not sign with buffalo or cincinnati, and disciplines players (for both on the field and off the field issues) based on media outcry as opposed to any set standard or past practice.

I think Harrison may get the coals poured to him on this one.

as-far-as 'the League, valuing it's integrity', this is the same league that allowed Jones in Dallas to sell several hundreds (THOUSANDS?) of tickets to the Super Bowl, for seats that never existed

goodell isn't out to get us, he's just trying to transform our team into a pansy squad like the patriots

also people bring up good points about offensive players not getting fined for helmet hits. they don't, you know, unless their name is hines ward

And the other thing that is scary, all of the NFL fans and sportswriters are on the same page with Goodell, it's almost like he has brainwashed everyone into thinking that this is how football should be played. I don't understand all of this, fines AND then suspensions. I understand that they are trying to protect players, fine. But when the game is happening at a very rapid speed, shit happens, isn't the 15 yard penalty and an automatic first down enough of a penalty? I mean, what defensive players WANTS to give up 15 yards. I mean, a lot of the time, giving a team 'free' yardage results in points on the board. I think that is enough incentive in itself to help prevent hits, of course they will never be entirely extinguished, but a reduction is progress. But of course the NFL wants to see them stop immediately, and they just don't see how it's possible that they continue to happen.

if the players were smart they would have pushed to get Goodell fired before agreeing to anything before end to lockout

The players have no say as to who the commissioner is. He's subservient only to the owners.
