At the very least, why isn’t Goodell temporarily suspended until the results of the investigation are completed?
I know, I know… Goodell helped bring great financial success to the NFL with past TV deals. But the NFL is never about what you did before. It’s what are you doing for me now. Past exploits are a phony rationalization for inaction in the moment. Ray Rice also scored a lot of touchdowns, but he became bad for the Ravens and was immediately expendable. That’s the NFL lifecycle.
I find it hard to believe that Goodell is the only person on earth that could sell water in the desert. Football is a tremendously popular sport in America. The networks aren’t paying for Roger Goodell.
