This guy says it better then I can but I agree with all of it.
NFL: Is Roger Goodell a good NFL commissioner? - Quora


With respect to the league (NFL) as a business, I think he is doing a great job for them. And this angle is what he seems to have stuck to throughout his time there. He is doing everything to make the league more accessible and attractive to the consumer. He understands what customers want and he gives it to them. He is decisive and seems to always align himself in the best interest of the league first and the customers a close second.

Some things that he has done that make the NFL more accessible to customers:

1. Addressing the concussion issue. To be clear, he only addressed it - nothing more. He hasn't pushed to solve it in a holistic way but he has protected the NFL by addressing it and adding procedures (useful?) by which teams check and deal with concussions. This placates the fans that something is being done to protect the players but isn't so much that it takes away the excitement of the game and in turn the love for the game that the fans have. (Yes, violence is a large part of the reason you watch the NFL - deal with it). Player safety is treated as a secondary issue (at least thats what I see from his actions.)

2. Stiff penalties for coaches and players who break the rules. I would have to do a little research to see if the commissioner's stiff penalties have actually reduced the amount of drugs taken and the number of arrests of NFL players. But more important than that, these penalties signal to the fan that their interests - ie that the game is fair and that they aren't watching an orchestrated event - is very important to the league. Again the commissioner keeps the fans happy and the NFL business growing.

3. Growing the NFL
Goodell has introduced the playing of some games in London and Toronto. All of which have been sold out. He decisively killed off an underperforming product - NFL Europe and now plans for expansion to the rest of the world. I think he really is focussed on growing the NFL pie.

From a player's standpoint, I think he must be hated. It would be hard not to be with the way he puts the player's needs past the NFL's business needs. Anytime he exercises his power, some coach or player usually has to pay the penalty. And a lot of players have publicly commented negatively on the commissioner making more money than they do.

But in the end, when it comes to customer satisfaction with the fans he does a great job because that aligns closely with making the NFL a successful business which seems to be his main goal. And he's doing a pretty job that way.

But he shouldnt have. The Lakers were named that when they were in Minnesota. There arent many lakes in LA, however Minnesota is covered in them. And yes, the team name was Lakers because of the many lakes there.

Prior to the NBA being formed, they had a different name. I forgot where they were located but the team went out of business. Once bought, they moved the team to Minn. and named them the Lakers. The reasons for someone buying the defunct team was 1) they wanted a team (obviously) and 2) they realized that they could have George Mikan if they bought that specific out of business team.

Back to football.

Michael Lombardi said the rams are willing to trade RB Steven Jackson for a draft pick.

My bad, I was asleep at the wheel. I saw the post prior to yours and was thinking about teams that changed names.

I would love to have him but dont want to see any more draft picks going for older players. We have had way to much of that the past 20 years. Imo, we need to build through the draft and use FA to supplement the roster, like the teams that have recently won SB's do.

Re: Around the NFL...Week 7 Style

all good in the hood

one more thing before we get back to football




now, of course they want to get something for jackson. they already tipped their hand when they unlocked his cage, allowing him to crawl away after this season. the cards are the most desperate team at rb, do they make a move? historically, they like their backs old and past their prime. ask emmitt smith and edgerrin james
