I would like it if we can get Woodson and draft a Safety with our 2nd round pick like Phillip Thomas or Baccari Rambo and help mentor him for a year or two.

In the end, Goodell does the bidding of the owners. And unless the NFL's popularity and profitability drops; no one can say that the commish is doing a terrible job.

100% dead on!

No seriously though. He is ruining the game changing it. And whether some of the previous points are true or not, he is way overpayed. All the commissioners are over paid but he especially is over paid.
1) How is he ruining the game?

2)Why is he overpaid?

At 20 mil over the cap? They going to have to make some major moves to have a chance to pull that off.

Why don't they focus on signing Spencer instead of a Freeney. Also he plays re and they already have a good one in Ware. Making a play for a guy like that is why I am so glad Jerry j is still in charge.

I don't think the numbers matter until the day the free agency starts. Between cuts and restructures the cowboys certainly could get Freeneyif JJ wants him and he wants to go there. They would just end up with more dead cap in the future.

Yeah a larger field is just stupid. It's been the same for years now and I really hope they don't change it to the cfl style. Honestly if it comes down to games annually being like 48-40 I won't watch much anymore. It's really y I'm not a huge college fan and I live in Oklahoma where OU is everything.. college for the most part has NO. Defense at all and it's just boring. It's like playing Madden on rookie. No challenge

Thats all I can think of off the top of my head, but like I said and will stress again, he has fined players for RIDICULOUS things.
-Ryan Clark $5,000 for eyeblack of 21 in honor of Sean Taylor when he died
- Frank Gore $10,000 for not having high enough socks
- Plaxico Burress $5,000 for toss a football into the stands
- Antonio Brown fined $10,000 for running backwards while scoring a TD
- Urlacher fined $100,000 for wearing a vitamin water hat at super bowl media day
- Sheldon Brown fined $10,000 for wearing a Jason Mask during pregame/run out of the tunnel introductions

------
Your second question why is Goodell over paid?

Well for starters, the NBA commission makes an ESPN reported $15-16 million/year. The MLBs commissioner makes $18 million per year. Goodell makes $29+ million/year. He should be making around what these other guys make. Baseball and Basketball have more games, yes. But one major difference between football and the other two sports is that the other two sports are more popular worldwide. And as for in this country and popularity, football is the most popular sport, but not enough to be a clear cut popularity choice over the other two sports. Its not like Goodell is doing a lot more than the other guys too. He's doing just as much as Selieg and Stern (and Bettman).

All sport commissioners are overpaid. These are guys who should be making $5 million annually max. If the president of the US is $400,000 a year, and Roger Goodell is making almost $30 million a year, America, we've got a problem.

I really don't need any more stats or facts about "Why do you think Goodell is overpaid?" Maybe I should be asking you, "Why do you think Goodell is worth a ridiculous sum of money?"
I literally agree with this entire post

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

Not to mention the ridiculous 50k fine against Ed Reed. They have gone completely over board with the helmet to helmet stuff.

Some of this stuff is not all on RG. I believe Ray Anderson is the one who hands out the fines.

The league is all about ratings and points being scored is all they care about. The rules are too one sided.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

I tend to agree with CB59 on this. Imo the game has gotten worse under RG not better. And I can think of no "reason" to pay him that amount of money. Would he quit if he were making something more on par with Stern? It would be ok with me if he did....he's not irreplaceable. Not by a longshot. If you have that much money to throw around give the fans a break. That much money to the Commish reminds me of Wallstreet and corrupt companies that give CEO's huge bonus's. But that might be just the way I feel today. :-)

We as fans and consumers of his product can say he's doing a terrible job. I think most of the fans don't think much of him and we already know what the players think.

I really don't need any more stats or facts about "Why do you think Goodell is overpaid?" Maybe I should be asking you, "Why do you think Goodell is worth a ridiculous sum of money?"
Some people need to learn how the NFL runs,it's by committee,Goodell is like a COO of a very,very sucsessfull company and gets paid that way.I don't mean to be rude but "wrecking the game becuase he is worried about safety",what the hell?.Former players are killing themselves and others are suing the NFL becuase they do too little about safty,the guy can't win.As for some of the fines that you mention ,no ,I don't agree with alot of them but others are well deserved,if he doesn't run it (the NFL) with an iron fist it will turn into the NBA,the hell with that.
You keep saying, he this and he that, ...THE COMPETITION COMMITTEE VOTES on any and all changes.Goodell didn't do it,Bidwell,Wilson,Jones,Lurie,Mara,Hunt,Snyder etc, all changed it!
All the other sports combined don't do what the NFL does,now while I agree with many of you it's becuase I just believe noone is is worth that money I understand business.I want them to let the players play the game my opinion,give all players lifetime healthcare.Nothing, and yes I mean nothing in the NFL is done by one man.
