         Yet more buffoonery from our beloved NFL Commissioner, as Vince Wilfolk get fined $10,000 for "driving the opposing QB into the ground". Isn't that what football is all about - driving the opposing ball carrier into the ground??

    They've had that rule in place for a while now -- that you're not supposed to land on the quarterback if you can avoid it. The league must have looked at the tape and realized there really wasn't any appreciable helmet-to-helmet contact that wasn't initiated by Henne, and simply fallen back on this defense when they realized it was a bullsh*t flag.

    The officiating has spiraled dangerously out of control and some team is going to get screwed mightily in the playoffs this year, unless I'm wildly mistaken.

    In Response to Re: More Proof That Goodell is Out of Control :      Betcha that the team that gets screwed will be facing the Indianapolis Colts at the time of the screwing. Goodell must go!

    Re: More Proof That Goodell is Out of Control

    I for one am having a hard time even recognizing NFL football. Each week they keep changing the game. Now we have this new overtime arrangement. It's gone from a sport to the entertainment business. This is just speculation on my part but I'm starting to think that the reason for the alot of these fines are related to the marketing the NFL is doing to attract more female viewers. Question: do female viewers think the game is too violent? Don't get me wrong you can and have every right to be a football fan no matter what gender you are but frankly I don't know many women who really give a hout about watching football.

    I also agree that this fine stuff has something to do with the bargaining agreement between players and owners. At this point though, they might as well put just play flag football for the rest of the year. This might just be the year the Refs decide who wins the Super Bowl. What a shame! Goodell has single handedly ruined the sport.

    I hope the players get together and say hey the defense has a right to play football! How can this game be played if everytime there's a hit an offensive player is asking for a flag.

         Don't think that political hack "Jets" Goodell has an agenda, and hates the Pats? Why, after "spygate" supposedly gave the league a "black eye", according to the Commish...would Goodell revisit that issue on the eve of the SB, with the press?: http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/extra_points/2011/02/roger_goodell_f.html

    Does anyone know if Peppers get fined for that hit to Rodgers in the NFC Championship? Does the NFL not fine the players they want to promote?

    In Response to Re: More Proof That Goodell is Out of Control : Yeah, that was a travesty.  I hope Jenn Sterger sues the NFL and wins big. She has been put through microscope-hell even though she is the victim. She wasn't asking for any money, just the commish to do the right thing and send the right message and he let her down.  He  basically flipped her the bird and dared her to sue. What a sleazy dope!

    wood, give it a rest... league should be SUING sterger! not about money my foot... always about $! at her level, who has done more for cheap money with her body than she? good, clearly has done a great job. the fact that like bel he largely could care less how players and non-relevant others see him is a great thing... fact is the sponsors, mass influencers, owners and advertisers love him. job done! he refuses to let the inmates run the asylum, what's wrong with that? 

    oooh, he plays snowed-in games on a tuesday... oh my... when these petty complaints are the best we can come up with, it is  proof-positive as to what a great job he is actually doing. he is a typical oldest bro type, all you obvious younger brother types (including YOU wood) want more tree-hugging touchy-feely types in charge. good focuses on the most relevant and ignores the more trivial. he has played this CBA negotiation perfectly and will again get most of what he has outlined including the 18-game schedule.

    Texas... you're spot on. Goodell has no moral underpinnings or guts as he showed when he failed to callout Bart Scott for threatening to end Welker's career.

    Goodell is not only the worst commissioner in professional sports,he is contention for being the worst commissioner in any sport,maybe ever..His obvious inconsistency,bias and self promotion is so blatant(the Welker situation is just the latest example of such incompetence and personal agenda)that any owner who has a sense of honor,integrity and concern for the league's reputation and professionalism should looking to oust him poste haste,and Bob Kraft should be leading the way.
