NFL Commissioner/warden/playa hater Roger Goodell received a contract extension that will run through 2018. Needless to say I am not too happy about this move.
This is a man who presided over the first work stoppage in the NFL in over 20 years this past offseason. This is the same dude who is trying to take the “football” out of football by implementing those stupid-ass “defenseless player” rules (though I do agree with the helmet-to-helmet rules). Defensive players cannot even touch nor breathe on receivers down the field without fear of pass interference calls.
And here’s the capper: players cannot hit those pretty-ass quarterbacks up high and down low. In short, Goodell is turning the NFL into a mixture of flag football and soccer.
I miss the NFL of old where fans witnessed big hit after big hit without any fear of penalties and fines. I miss the NFL where defense was valued a bit more.
Thanks to Goodell’s stupid-ass, the NFL is softer than college football. Don’t be surprised to see offensive players wearing flags and quarterbacks wearing pink skirts.
Yeah Goodell brought the NFL a tougher player conduct policy, but who cares. Goodell sucks…

Check yourself on the facts. There was no work stoppage. All games happened. Ask the NBA how that went down.
Yeah, dude I know. It’s just that we shouldn’t have to deal with all the lockout bullcrap. By the way, Goodell still sucks…
Goodell is an employee of the NFL. He works for the owners. He successfully kept a system in place that reaps enormous profits for his employers. The league also scored major PR points by taking a tough stance with players who were embarrassing the league with barfights, sexual assualts and other lawless, reckless behavior.
When an employee makes money for his employer, successfully negotiates amd thwarts a potentional labor stoppage and puts the product in a good PR light, he is going to be rewarded.
Goodell wasn’t hired to make the fans happy. He was hired to do what’s mentioned above.
