    People who think Goodell is doing a bad job make me laugh. Yeah, the suspension stuff is completely inexcusable. Suspensions are about 1% of his job.

    The rest is increasing the league's profile and making the owners money. He's led the league to an era of unprecedented revenue. Multi-billion dollar TV contracts. He avoided a work stoppage (during the season) and got a CBA that strongly favors the owners.

    As far as the owners (his bosses) are concerned, he's doing a great job. He isn't going anywhere.

    Don't leave out his efforts to make the game as soft as possible.

    The increased scoring hasn't exactly hurt TV ratings.

    This stuff isn't an accident, guys. He isn't incompetent and ruining the game. Goodell is making deliberate moves that have increased the popularity of football to all-time highs.

    Still worse in my opinion. I want the game they said they played on the gridiron.

    Attendance is down but tv viewership is up. People don't like going to the games but will watch the hell out of them on tv. That's where the tv money comes from. Roger Goodell didn't have a damn thing to do with that.

    I think that increased the casual fan more so than the hardcore fan and that's why you see so many fair weather fans now. Now it seems it's just something for people to do on Sunday. Not that they necessarily care. I go to sports bars and it doesn't seem they care as much but that's probably because I'm in Los Angeles. They keep the volume off the Titan's games anyway so I said F that rather quickly.

    The NFL is a private business. Ray Rice brought negative PR to the NFL. Therefore he can be punished. Pacman was never convicted for anything in the strip club incident, but he got a year long ban.

    Quit with this nonsense that no conviction = no punishment.

    Agreed. HDTV is what has increased viewership. Roger Goodell had nothing to do with inventing HDTV.
