If the owners didn't like the way he ran the league, they would get rid of him. Remember, he works for them. Not excusing his actions. He's a scum bag thru and thru. But the owners are as much to blame.

He's out of control.

How did we get here?
Empowered by the owners. He’s made them a ton of money too. That’s how.

Money never sleeps, as they say. We're about to find out how irrelevant the fans are in terms of where the money really is, too, if we're playing in empty stadiums this season. It's that TV contract, folks!

And of course our GM speaks out and gets quoted regarding it before he flexed his power.

Exactly. Some of the anger and frustration fans have with Goodell is misguided at times. Most of the time he's just the owners' henchman. But it's much easier to aim the anger at one person as opposed to 31 owners and Green Bay's Board.

If the draft goes on as planned then it's because that's what the owners want.

I really don't think watching people broadcast like everyone is doing now (in front of the laptop at home) is going to be the rating bonanza they think. Also, how are you going to have a virtual war" room to adjust to live trades?

Yep, I don't see how there are so many folks that don't get this. He is an extension of the most powerful owners....as long as he makes them money he could do just about anything he wants....

Stating on March 26 that holding a football draft on April 23 is absolutely the correct course is something that can not be done with any knowledge or confidence. Acting as though it can be done works only to reveal either unrelenting hope or blistering arrogance.

I think we all know which one is the answer to that question, At the end of the article, the author lets on that he's well aware of it, too.
Acting like there’s only one correct viewpoint on the matter says everything that could ever be said about Roger Goodell.

Amen to that. The owners need to take off their rose coloured glasses and fire him while they still have fans to keep.
