Default Goodell unwelcome at Vilma's restaurant

Saw this on the "worldwide leader of sports" network. Sorry If I posted in the wrong section.

http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/po...t-vilmas-place

I can't (well, I can) believe Steven A. Idiot's argument for Vilma posting the sign. Vilma's sign has NOTHING to do with our country's history of racism/discrimination. Of course he is known for making a performance every time he's on the air, but all Vilma did was simply state his dislike for Goodell and provide a means to make it known (again).

I laughed when I saw this. Stick it to the Fuhrer, Vilma!

I do not see the racism in it either, I think Steven A is making it a racial issue...

That is why they get paid the big bucks at the "worldwide leader of sports."

Wie wagen Jonathan Vilma verbieten mir von seinem Restaurant! Weiß er nicht, wer ich bin? Ich bin Ihr Führer! Diese Empörung wird nicht ungestraft bleiben! James Harrison wird 100000000000000000000000000 $ Geldstrafe und die Steelers nach London bewegt werden! Rufen Feldmarschall Kraft! Wir werden dies mit der New England Patriots feiern!




Oooohhhh! Mein Fuhrer wants to have a party with us!? That sounds FABULOUS!

I don't find the sign offensive or even provocative.

Although I do find the allusions to the NFL commissioner as a Nazi uncouth and stupid.

i agree with Skip. Vilma believes he is innocent...or at least not guilty of a crime worth a year suspension.

I think Vilma hasnt come out and apologized for the poster, because he is trying to draw attention to his case. Whether intentionally or not, Vilma is also giving people another reason to really have the opportunity to focus on Goodell and analyze his judgement.

See, that's the problem. His judgement is treated as the word of God in NFL matters.

He is all knowing. It is futile to question Him. As a matter of fact, merely questioning Him is offensive and ungrateful (think of all He has done for you). And furthermore, there is no force powerful enough in the universe to over rule Him.

How sad is it...the previous paragraph LITERALLY describes Goodell's authority. Not exaggerations. Not stretching the truth.

I 100% support anything that shines light on Goodell.

Sunlight, as they say, is the best disinfectant.

Except when cleaning my dirty undies Dude....the whites.
