Default Goodell's Email Address

Here is the email address for Roger Goodell:

Commisioner’s e-mail:

roger.goodell@nfl.com


I sent him the following regarding James Harrison (we should all do the same):
Mr. Commissioner,

I disagree with the one-game suspension of James Harrison and I believe the suspension should be lifted.

His hit against Colt McCoy was hard but was not illegal and I believe that this decision was based upon your perception of Mr. Harrison's so-called "reputation" and not on the merits of the actual incident.

While I agree with your concern for player safety, I do not agree with the seemingly random and uneven application of your policies.
I believe that players like Mr. Harrison have been unduly branded as "dirty" and that your decisions regarding his play in particular have been biased because of that.
As a fan of the game, I do not wish to see players injured for the sake of a team's success but I also do not want to see a cherished sport become little more than a shell of itself by bringing every instance of contact into question or by assuming that all contact initiated by certain players is automatically suspect and judged from that standpoint.

When a player clearly and with malice aforethought attempts to maim or injure another player I think that player should be punished in any and all ways available to you.
But punishing aggressive and spirited play - especially when taken out of context or over scrutinized through technology and or reputation, can and does damage and diminish the game in ways that might ultimately lead to its demise and irrelevance.

I ask that you please reconsider your position on Mr. Harrison's suspension.

Respectfully...

if anyone else is going to contact league offices or email the Fuhrer - you might consider telling him that with all the technology and minute rules in place, he might want to consider a hit to the head on a running back equally dangerous and furthermore take into consideration the fact that Harrison clearly was not trying to concuss him, as evident by him approaching him, asking him if he was ok when he returned to the game, via his beloved technology

Goodell is a damned joke. I've never seen such a hypocritical person in my life. The enforcement of rules and doling out of punishments is so uneven it's unreal. Roethlisberger gets annihilated every week which is partly due to the way he plays but there are a lot of questionable hits where the ball is out of his hands and nothing gets called. Yet when Harrison hits someone a sea of flags covers the entirety of the field. Here's my email:

"As a devout fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and football as a sport I would like to express my disgust at your decision making process in regards to the suspension of James Harrison for the alleged illegal hit on Colt McCoy. Your enforcement of rules and doling out of punishments is so uneven and biased for that matter that one should question whether you're a commissioner or just a dictator. This is full contact tackle football, not flag football, and not two-hand touch. Incidental contact happens, and helmet to helmet hits happen accidentally from time to time. I think if Harrison was out to head hunt other players then he would of had a questionable hit before Week 14 of the current season. It's awfully convenient how you've given him a one game suspension when we have one of the biggest games on the schedule coming up against the 49ers on Monday Night Football.

I am thoroughly disgusted at the direction you seem to be taking the league. It's become pass-offense oriented. You seem to have it out for defenses that play hard nosed football as your new rules and policies make it increasingly difficult for defensive players to do what they need to do to win. Cornerbacks can't even barely brush receivers without drawing pass interference flags but receivers consistently get away with push-offs. Why is it that running backs can basically throw open handed strikes to the heads of defenders in the form of stiff arms and that isn't a penalty? Why is it that running backs can lower their head down and run headlong into defender's helmet first and it isn't a penalty? Why is is that offensive lineman seem to get away with cheap cut blocks below the knees sometimes for the majority of games?

You talk about player safety and protecting the players but you do nothing to protect the guys on defense. You just make their jobs harder. You act as if they can just make split second decisions on the field within the speed of the game whether or not to lower the boom and hit an offensive player. They don't have time to take into account a players positioning and have no way of knowing whether or not the offensive player they are about to hit is going to lower their helmet, attempt to duck, quickly throw the ball, etc...

You are making the game and the league into a laughing stock. Games are starting to look more like scrimmages than actual competitions. I'm sure your poster-boy Packers Quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers would beg to differ however, I can confidently say that Rodgers wouldn't have such gaudy numbers without your new "player safety" rules and regulations that basically keep defenses from so much as looking at him funny or else they draw a personal foul.

Harrison should be on the field on Monday plain and simple. You continue to fail football as a sport and the fans who appreciate watching good defensive performances. I'll always root for my Steelers and maintain my passion for football but it makes me sick to my stomach to watch the garbage rules you are implementing into the game. "
