Drew Brees Says Roger Goodell Has 'Little To No Credibility' With NFL Players New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees on Wednesday strongly criticized the way NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell handled the investigation into the bounty case, saying the league was all about an outcome and not a fair process.
Roger Goodell: NFL Considering Expanding Playoffs NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke Wednesday after the December Special League Meeting in Dallas. The meeting was held in large part to discuss issues that later will be raised with the NFL Competition Committee, including eliminating low blocks and the implementation of mandatory pads.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, emboldened by the news, came out swinging, saying the news was "serious vindication" during his Wednesday media session. His first target was NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who Brees says has "little to no credibility" with NFL players right now, Brees said he hated to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but then sounded like a conspiracy theorist. He feels the last month since Tagliabue got involved in the bounty appeals process seems like it was all "staged," NFL.com's Jeff Darlington reported from New Orleans. Brees was asked if the Saints' failed season was stolen from them. "Many might say that, but I'm not one to make excuses," Brees said. Many may also find the passive aggressive approach by Brees tiring, especially since he absolves Sean Payton and all Saints players of any role in the mess. The former Super Bowl MVP saved his harshest words for former Saints coaches Gregg Williams and Mike Cerullo, calling them "disgruntled" guys that were fired. Brees t ...
(FM97 Sports / AP) — It's being seen as a sharp rebuke to Commissioner Roger Goodell's handling of the NFL's bounty investigation -- former Commissioner Paul Tagliabue on Tuesday overturned the suspensions of four current and former New Orleans Saints players. Tagliabue found that three of the players engaged in conduct detrimental to the league, and says they participated in a performance pool that rewarded hard tackles and other plays that could merit fines. But he stressed that the team's coaches were very much involved and, along with others in the Saints' organization, had "contaminated" the case. Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma initially had been suspended the whole season, while Saints defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove received shorter suspensions.
Jonathan Vilma has asked a federal judge to allow him to move forward with his defamation case against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Jonathan Vilma's suspension has been vacated by Paul Tagliabue, but the Saints linebacker still intends to pursue his defamation lawsuit against Commissioner Roger Goodell.
I'm thinking Jonathan Vilma will need help picking up his jaw from the floor. In his ruling, former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue asserts that current Commissioner Roger Goodell might have been in the right when initially issuing punishments, but that the case has been so badly handled that it wou...

GOODELL TAKE ON THE ELIMINATION OF THE KICK-OFF.. When the NFL changed the line of scrimmage for kickoffs to increase touchbacks, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick derisively said it was only a matter of time before the league eliminated kickoffs entirely. He believed that's what the NFL wanted to do. Roger Goodell through the years Take a look at photos of Roger Goodell through the years. Belichick might wind up being proven right. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he has taken it under consideration to remove the kickoff entirely. "It's an off-the-wall idea," Goodell told TIME in a cover story for the Dec. 17 issue. "It's different and makes you think differently. It did me." Even more intriguing is an alternative concept promoted by first-year Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano. Goodell met with the NFL competition committee chairman about the concept. "After a touchdown or field goal, instead of kicking off, a team would get the ball on its own 30-yard line, where it's fourth-and-15," T ...
CRIBBS NOT IN FAVOR OF KICK-OFF BAN... BEREA, Ohio -- Kickoffs have defined Josh Cribbs' career in the NFL, and made him an invaluable weapon for the Cleveland Browns.

Earlier this week, Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league's competition committee will consider eliminating kickoffs in the offseason. In an effort to reduce head injuries and protect players, the league previously moved the kickoff from the 30- to 35-yard line to cut down on violent collisions. Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano has suggested that instead of kickoffs, teams would have the option of punting from the 30-yard line and going for a first down in a fourth-a ...

Moron... errr, More On Goodell's Kickoff Removal On Thursday, TIME disclosed that Commissioner Roger Goodell has mentioned a possible replacement for kickoffs that would give the team that otherwise would be kicking off possession of the ball at its own 30 yard line, with a down-and-distance of fourth and 15. Goodell said the idea came from Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano. On Friday, Schiano talked about the idea in a session with the media. “That happened before I was head coach of the Bucs,” Schiano said, via PewterReport.com. “It happened when I was still at Rutgers. I was with Commissioner Goodell and we were talking about it. He expressed his concern about the health of the players in relation to the kickoff play. Certainly with my experience with Eric LeGrand I had similar feelings.” LeGrand, a former Rutgers (and, technically, Buccaneers) player, suffered paralysis as a result of a neck injury during a kickoff return. “This is just something that I dreamed up and as I said to [Goodell ...

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell still is talking about shortening the preseason. public push for an 18-game regular season has died down, but that doesn't mean the current four-game preseason necessarily is safe. Goodell mentioned during his Thursday talk at Harvard University that he might cut down the number of preseason games. "It just does not meet the standard of quality that the NFL is all about," Goodell said, via The Associated Press.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Dismissing speculation that Sean Payton may leave New Orleans because of a glitch in his contract, Drew Brees has no doubt he'll be reunited with the suspended Saints coach in 2013. ''I absolutely believe he'll be back,'' Brees said Monday night after guiding the Saints to a 28-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Payton was suspended for the season by the NFL for his role in the bounty scandal. The league has taken issue with a clause in the contract extension he agreed to more than a year ago, which was to have kept him in New Orleans through 2015. ''I haven't seen the report or heard the report,'' Saints interim coach Joe Vitt said. ''I don't want to have any comment, but let me say this: This team loves Sean, and Sean loves this team. This city loves Sean, and Sean loves this city. I think that's a tough combination to beat.'' NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Sunday he does not know if Payton might become a coaching free agent after the season. ''The one contract that they s ...

More news from The Onion . . I quote: "New York—In a new effort to deter rule violations and reduce penalty rates across the league, the NFL announced Thursday it would install hundreds of security cameras in stadiums and constantly monitor players during games. “This new surveillance system will effectively prevent penalties, because players know that the moment they step on the football field, we’ll be closely watching them at all times,” said Commissioner Roger Goodell, adding that currently referees can’t see every face mask, clipping, or horse-collar tackle that occurs on the field and sidelines, and have been unable to address why players decide to break rules in the first place. “I’m confident the dense placement of security cameras will significantly decrease the number of illegal formations, neutral zone infractions, and equipment violations in the league, creating a safer, more harmonious sport for all.

The NFL will use pink penalty flags at Sunday's Jets-Dolphins games in recognition of breast cancer awareness month. The idea came from an 11-year-old Dante Cano of Marlboro, N.J., who hand-wrote a letter to Commissioner Roger Goodell.
There will be more pink visible on the field during the Dolphins-Jets game this weekend. The NFL announced Wednesday officials will be using pink penalty flags for Sunday's game after an 11-year-old wrote Commissioner Roger Goodell with the suggestion. In support of breast cancer awareness, pink has been highly visible this month, from coaches' caps to players' wristbands and cleats, and even officials' whistles. Dante Cano, a fifth-grader from Marlboro, New Jersy, then offered the idea of pink penalty flags. The NFL agreed and invited Cano and his family to MetLife Stadium, where they they will present the penalty flags to the officials before the game. "Dante had a great idea and I am looking forward to meeting with him on Sunday to put it into action," Goodell said. "Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the best. I applaud Dante for sending in his recommendation." Scott Thackrey
11-yr old boy sent hand-written letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, & convinced him to further increase breast cancer awareness by using pink penalty flags in-game.

How Are Hard Earned Tax Dollars Are Wasted On! It’s becoming a tradition for Sen. Tom Coburn: The annual “Waste Book.” Every year since 2010, the Oklahoma Republican has issued his blistering report highlighting the most 100 most egregious abuses of taxpayer dollars. This year, Coburn and his research team highlighted examples totaling $17.9 billion and ABC News got an exclusive first look. For example, chances are when you think “nonprofit,” you don’t think of the National Football League, the National Hockey League, or the Professional Golfers’ Association. However, each of these sport’s associations avoids paying tens of millions of dollars each year in taxes because they classify themselves as such. The NFL loophole is Exhibit A in Coburn’s new report on government waste, which points out that the NFL alone pulled in more than $9 billion last year and paid Commissioner Roger Goodell more than $11 million. “We have some of the biggest corporations in America paying no taxes whats ...

Way to go Brees, the Who-DAT Nation is behind you 100%. Brees responds to Bradshaw, Fujita comments by Steve Geller , posted Oct 11 2012 10:24AM Former NFL QB Terry Bradshaw created a mini-firestorm with the Who Dat Nation yesterday in comments about Sean Payton attending Sunday's Saints-Chargers game. The Hall of Famer for some reason is upset that Drew Brees asked Commissioner Roger Goodell's permission to get suspended coaches Sean Payton and Vitt Joe and suspended GM Mickey Loomis in the Superdome for his record-breaking performance Sunday night. Now, quarterback Drew Brees has responded to Bradshaw's contention that having the suspended men in the Superdome was a "slam" to the Chargers and the Unitas family.

The Minnesota Vikings, who are already thin at safety, has been ejected from the Vikings contest against the Titans after he shoved an official out of the way during an interception late in the second
He was originally slated to return in time for the game against New Orleans on Oct. 28, but will now miss that game and road contests at Cincinnati and Carolina, too. The Broncos, who had been preparing for Williams' suspension to be extended, declined comment after arriving in New England on Friday night for their game against the Patriots this weekend. Wesley Woodyard and Keith Brooking have shared snaps at weakside linebacker in Williams' absence. Williams met with commissioner Roger Goodell in New York last month in hopes of avoiding further punishment from the league following his latest run-in, a case that stemmed from a drunken driving arrest nearly two years ago. He was originally charged with driving under the influence, but a jury returned a conviction on a lesser charge. He was also convicted of driving without headlights, the offense that prompted police to stop him near downtown Denver about 3 a.m. on Nov. 12, 2010. Prosecutors said Williams failed roadside sobriety tests during his traffic s ...

The “worst call in history” that happened during last week’s Packers-Seahawks game turned out to be the luckiest call in history for a Canadian gambler named Gino DiFelice. The call was so embarrassing that it essentially forced the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell to settle their three month labor dispute with the striking official referees practically overnight. The call also gave Gino DiFelice an extremely unlikely (and slightly undeserved) final win on a 15 game parlay that turned his $5 initial bet into more than $725,000!

So the NFL executives and cantankerous owners finally decided to reach an agreement with the refs yesterday. Big whoop te freakin doo! Are we supposed to give rousing standing ovation?

Goodell apologizes to fans for replacement refs: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is apologizing to fans f...
My fellow Americans, our brief national nightmare is over – the NFL's regular referees are headed back to work. After three weeks of blown calls, no calls and reversed calls; of physical contact and verbal intimidation; of confused Vegas bookmakers and infuriated fantasy players; and less than 48 hours after what is perhaps the most bizarre ending to a football game not involving a Stanford trombone player, the NFL and the NFL Referees Association reached an agreement Wednesday. "Our officials will be back on the field starting [Thursday] night," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement, referring to the Cleveland Browns-Baltimore Ravens contest. Meanwhile, the much derided replacement refs can return to the ball fields of Division III, junior college and the lingerie league. We're sure Bill Belichick sends his regards. Score this one for public pressure, as the NFL, under intense scrutiny and criticism, finally acknowledged that the job of referee isn't just a replaceable occupation. As a tid ...
Boycott The NFL, Now 09/25/2012 Boycott the NFL, everyone. Do it now. I'm going to try not to belabor this point. Everyone who is a fan of the National Football League either witnessed last night's debacle in Seattle as it happened on live television or saw it afterwards in the copious coverage of the final play of the Green Bay-Seattle game. Right now, the National Football League is facing a crisis of leadership, all over a problem that does not even exist: As my colleague Arthur Delaney noted today, "The NFL doesn't even pretend it can't afford ref pensions." And the reporting of HuffPost's Dave Jamieson bears this out: Indeed, when HuffPost asked NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to address the pension issue on Wednesday, he didn't argue that the league's retirement contributions to referees had grown too onerous. Instead, he simply noted the fact that American workers in general are losing their defined benefit pensions. Even Roger Goodell, Goodell noted, doesn’t enjoy such a pension plan. "From the o ...

"Already in Vegas the odds that the Packers would win the Super Bowl dropped from 7-1 yesterday to 9-1 today," Quinn noted. "It gives you an idea about what the material effect of one game can be. One play in one game can make that much of a difference, millions of dollars." Quinn says the $8 million the community would lose if the Packers didn't host a playoff game is twice the amount league owners and the referees' union are squabbling over right now. He's says considering NFL revenue is more than $9 billion a year, it's hard to fathom replacement referees were ever used. "We're talking about maybe four-, five-million dollars a year, which is something like 1/30th of one percent of the NFL revenues, is what's separating them. Cut it out." Quinn says based on the fallout from Monday night's debacle, he wouldn't surprised to see NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announce a deal with the regular refs before this weekend. "I cannot imagine this morning that he's not trying to build a coalition to end this lock ...

Just called the office of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and left him a message. In short, I told him he has to do the right thing and protect the integrity of the game. He has to end the impasse with the officials NOW. I'm saying here what I said to his answering machine - I'm a life-long fan of the NFL and I will not watch another second of another game until they restore the League. I'm done. I also told him the league should award GB a win as well or overturn the result. Unprecedented? Yes. So are the circumstances. The Commissioner is failing and is derelict in his duties. He should get this sorted out immediately or be fired immediately.
The NFL referees are 119 part-time employees who make $8,000 a week. As Jeff MacGregor calculated at espn.com, at a cost of $50 million a year—less than one percent of total revenue—NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell could hire 200 full-time officials at $250,000 a year. Conversely, if Goodell gets everything he wants from the referees union and he doesn’t have to spend too much in legal fees, it works out to league-wide savings of just $62,000 per team. Why has NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, taken such a hard line? After a year defined by the tragic suicides of former players suffering from post-concussion syndrome and a looming lawsuit brought by 2000 former players contending that the NFL didn’t take their safety seriously, why would they engage in such naked contempt for the well-being of players and the integrity of their game? Simply put, because they can. As always, it’s always about money.
Dear NFL, I heard you don't like bounties. Well, how about this for a bounty? I will pay $100 for the head of referee Lance Easley or Commissioner Roger Goodell. I'd pay more, but the economy ***

Dear NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, please return REAL refs to the field. These pop warner refs are trying really hard but it's hurting the game.
An idiotic play by Josh Morgan of the Washington Redskins. No excuse. But I sure hope Commissioner Roger Goodell was watching that. The game was out of control, and Morgan's actions were a product of the atmosphere of that game. And yet, the awful officiating this Sunday will probably get little to no mention on ESPN/any other sports media. What a joke. What's worse is, even before the replacements, NFL refs got paid less than any other officials in the "big 4" (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL). This is all about money, and the NFL doesn't even have room to complain.
Does anyone else think NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell look like Aaron Eckhart?

Then there is the ongoing lockout of 119 National Football League referees. NFL owners, led by their flak-catching Commissioner Roger Goodell, don’t care that for the cost of several dozen Peyton Manning autographed footballs, they could rehire their highly trained officials. This is a league that secretes money, but the billionaires in the owner’s box can’t stand the thought of paying for competent officiating when there are replacements willing to work for less pounding at the doors. This is all connected people! It started in Wisconsin last year, the moneyed elite of the right wing is planning to eradicate the New Deal and merge the middle, worker and lower classes into a single hyper-serfdom, the return of feudalsim. Our strength is in our numbers and sooner or later you will have to make a conscious decision to stop participating and contributing to your own marginalization.
I hereby move that Roger Goodell be removed from his position as NFL Commissioner and replaced by me.

Time to put the heat on Time Warner again!
Today I was reading an article about the NFL bounty scandal involving New Orleans Saints players and coaches, and how the suspensions of the players have been overturned. For those Minnesota Vikings fans who remember the NFC Championship game from 2009, and how it seemed as though the Saints players were taking cheap shots at Brett Favre in an attempt to injure him, that's because they were. The penalties against the Saints organization, coaches and players were unprecedented. Fines, loss of draft picks, a head coach suspended for an entire season, a defensive coordinator suspended indefinitely, another assistant coach suspended for six games, and individual player suspensions ranging from two games all the way up to a full season. All of the other penalties were upheld, but the players are no longer suspended. People with limited knowledge of the situation may think that this means the players were innocent. That is hardly the case. The players are still guilty of accepting money for trying to inju ...

three-member appeals panel struck a serious blow to commissioner Roger Goodell's power. It is about time
Bounty Suspensions Overturned For Saints Players After all the reports and meetings and suspensions over the New Orleans Saints and the alleged bounty scandal, a three-man arbitration panel have overturned NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s ruling. Reposting with more exposure.
According to a source close to the commissioner, Roger Goodell, in response to the overturning of his Saints bounty ruling, is suspending all 32 NFL teams this year because he believes that soccer is the real football, and any team associating the NFL as football is against his godly rule.
So what power does NFL commissioner Roger Goodell really have?? The Saints players in the bounty scandal ate eligible to play Sunday. There was a big waste of time and money. Could have just paid the regular officials their raise.
Other news the Saints bounty hunters won their appeal, and now they can play on Sunday. I know NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is *** off.
Saints are back. Just proves if you have enough money you can get away with anything. Per Adam Schefter Posted by whodattn ⋅ Aug 15, 2012 ⋅ 9 Comments When it comes to the events of Judge Helen G. Berrigan’s courtroom, everyone has been focused on whether or not Jonathan Vilma will get an injunction putting his suspension on hold. While it would be great to see Vilma back with the team and rehabilitating his knee properly, it has gone largely unnoticed how much of an effect Berrigan’s ruling can have. Much of the talk with regard to who has the power to decide the fate of the players involved centers around Article 14 of the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement. If Berrigan rules that the players took part in a pay-for-performance system rather than pay-to-injure, the discipline would be the responsibility of the system arbitrator, not Commissioner Roger Goodell. As a result, all player suspensions would be immediately wiped out. That’s not the only effect Berrigan’s ruling would have. Cla ...

Nimnicht Sports Update: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Jaguars owner Shad Khan will be in town tomorrow to announce international games for the Jaguars beginning in 2012. The Jaguars will begin to play one of their home games next year for the next four years through 2016. While London has been the site of the NFL's previous transatlantic games the Jaguars are exploring the possibility of playing in Germany, Spain and in other countries as well. It's possible that the Jaguars could play two games overseas each year starting in 2014, although details of the long-term plans haven't been worked out. One of those games could be considered a 'road game'." "The 2013-2016 games will be considered Jaguars "home" games, which means the team will play nine instead of ten home games at the stadium here in town beginning next year. This will reduce the price of the Jaguars season ticket, something that Khan called a "win-win" last month. In turn, season ticket holders will be offered special packages to atte ...

Best Seattle Seahawks Superbowl 47 Odds: 60 to 1: This is a very interesting team to watch this year. The Seahawks really got better as the season wore on, and now, Matt Flynn is expected to improve the weakest position on the team: Quarterback. The question though, is whether Marshawn Lynch is going to be nailed by Commissioner Roger Goodell for repeated issues with the law off the field. If he is, this offense could be in some big trouble. Still, adding Bruce Irvin in the NFL Draft will help the pass rush, and the addition of Kellen Winslow III for virtually nothing will help out a team without any truly huge receiving threats.
Best Dallas Cowboys 2013 Superbowl Odds: 25 to 1: Dez Bryant has some off the field issues to wonder about, and Commissioner Roger Goodell might come down on him hard before the start of the regular season. Still, picking up Morris Claiborne in the NFL Draft was the perfect fit for this franchise, which badly needed a defensive back after getting burned time and time again late in games after the offense put the team in a position to win. This might be the sleeper team in the NFC East in 2012.

Michael Could win a Pulitzer Prize! for L.A.Staduim, posted to Los Angeles Football Stadium,and Team Players,for Bring back. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo about Los Angeles to the league's 32 teams Friday -- one that surely resonated with the San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams and any others that might be considering relocation to the nation's second-largest market. "Although substantial uncertainties remain," Goodell wrote in the two-page document obtained by The Times, "stadium development in Los Angeles has advanced to the point where the prospects for a new facility are better than they have been in many years." The purpose of the memo does not appear to be driven by any plans that might be imminent. Rather, NFL insiders say, the commissioner felt it was appropriate to set and restate some ground rules, foremost among them: It's the league -- and not an individual team -- that will control the relocation process.
