Default Is Goodell really this stupid?

http://andy-benoit.blogs.cbssports.c...75988/26714528

So Favre won't be suspended or fined more than $50,000 WITH EVIDENCE PROVING HE PURSUED HER but Roethlisberger can be suspended four games, and James Harrison can be fined $125,000 for playing football.

Yep, that Roger Goodell. He's really doing fine work!

there's no consistency whatsoever on the way this league punishes the players. you get a separate set of rules if you don't play for the steelers or are one of the darlings of the league

it is insane. they need rules set in stone instead of one man enforcing them to his liking.

The worse part of this is that unless you're a Steelers fan you don't give a rats ass. That, my friends, is what makes it so easy to be unfair.

Goddell sucks.

Can't suspend Brett because of no evidence, yet suspends Ben because of no evidence.

in the words of the league office there was not enough evidence that breet farvre did anything to violate the league conduct policy, or anything that violated workplace behavior. yet he was fined 50 K for being non cooperative.

i didnt know a bachelor having sex in the offseason did. ben was totally cooperative.



pure and simple- goodell used ben and harrison to make examples of. after that he he didnt need to make exaples of anyone else.

it was a bunch of tough talk he is too spineless to follow up on. he realized he bit off more than he can chew.

Ridiculous! Goodell should have suspended the 2 creeps and not just one.

Default Re: Is Goodell really this stupid?

i posted this over in the "NFL" forum, but i'll move it over here too.....

ruling has come in. $50K fine...no suspension.
I just laugh and laugh and laugh. Even if he doesn't play another game, a "suspension" had to be dished out. Remember that little thing called the "NFL misconduct policy".
Whatever.
Some guys get fined. Some get suspended and made an example of. $50K to Favre is like 100 bucks to most of us. At least most people try to hide their bias.....Goodell doesn't even care...him and his cronies just go ahead and make it obvious and let it all hang out. And basically, they can say "What are you going to do about it?". The answer is = Nothing. Nobody's going to do anything.
It's going to take a prominent owner with allies to come out and make a VERY strong stance against his brand of Communism.
Another mockery of the system. Disgusting. Just downright disgusting

Supposed league ambassador. Publicly bragged about being happily married. Goes behind wife's back and sends juvenile, dirty text's to a team cheerleader. Wants to meet her in a hotel (and i don't think he was wanting to play tiddlywinks...)...Supposedly sends a picture of his genitals as well (they say they can't prove that the genitals was Favre's...but the pic was sent....c'mon). Won't outright deny anything, but won't talk either.
Doesn't violate the league misconduct policy?? Huh?? What? Really??
Wow.
