This will soon be known as the "Snitchline." How stupid is the NFL brass? Every time I think they can't be this ridiculous, they surpass their level of lunacy.

This is all about Goodell making appearances that he's taking care of business before some idiot congressman starts giving him real headaches. He sold us out in order to get people like Dick Durbin off his back.

Yep, part of his plan to get the congressman he met with today to back down and not call for hearings in congress. I guess it worked, because Durbin backed down, saying he was satisfied with Goodells' plans and would not call for hearings.
i guess this could go anywhere, but thinking about bounties
and the league's insistence on linking bounties and head injuries/concussions (for some reason)
but if you're goal is to get someone out of the game, aren't knees/ankles MUCH better target than the head which has a giant protective shell around it?
and aren't you putting your head in danger too by hitting that hard thing as opposed to those very yielding knees?
