It looks like NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has found himself another supporter when it comes to how he’s handled the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid thinks the Goodell and the NFL have done a great job.
“I think the league’s done a great job, and I think if you look at the big picture of Roger Goodell, people kind of micro-analyze him, I think. You have to look at the things that he’s doing he feels are the best for the game,” Reid said in a recent interview.
“He’s making people accountable for their work and what they say and what they do, and I don’t think that’s bad,” Reid said. “Do people like change? No, people don’t like change, so there’s going to be people that gripe … but I think for the betterment of the game, for the betterment of the NFL, I think he’s keeping perspective on that.”
Reid made it clear that he doesn’t agree with bounties and is in support of what Goodell has done to punish the Saints.
