And Goodell's dissapeared for the last few days, nowhwere to be found.
by design I'm sure, under advisement of whatever PR firm they're listening to.
A perfect storm was created. NFL die hards have been simmering for years about the pandering (Pinktober) the ruined uniforms, the no kickoff returns, the 2 hand touch rules on QB's, an inability to play defense, and now this year a deluge of penalty flags. Now their voices have been met by various other groups outraged at the hypocrisy of the league and the way it deals with delinquent players.
Thing is this type of stuff has been going on for YEARS. Every offseason we had players shot, players arrested, domestic abuse incidents. I guess this year we had so many big ones clustered together that the media decided to shine a light on EVERYTHING. I mean if this leads to the permanent eradication of thug culture from the game, I'm all for it. But it's going to be a painful transition...cleaning up the league will not be easy
