Getty Images Peter King of SI.com asked New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees about the player’s attitude towards NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. He certainly didn’t hold back what’s on his heart and mind. “Nobody trusts him. Nobody trusts him. I’m not talking about a DUI, or using a gun in a strip club, which are pretty clear violations,” Brees told King. ”I think there’re too many times where the league has come to its decision in a case before calling a guy in, and the interview is just a façade. I think now if a guy has to come in to talk to Roger, he’ll be very hesitant because he’ll think the conclusion has already been reached.” It’s unfortunate that the players don’t trust Goodell, but they did agree to this CBA, which gives him all of the power he has. I know they didn’t have much of a choice, but they could have held out longer and called the owners’ bluff.
