If you haven’t read Jason Whitlock’s article about how hypocritical Roger Goodell is pretending he cares about player safety, while simultaneously expanding Thursday Night Football to a season long thing and trying to expand the season to 18 games, here it is. It’s a very good read and yet another reason to hate Thursday Night Football. You may be thinking, how can you hate Thursday Night football? It’s another night of football. Yes, but it’s also sloppy football and if it’s a good matchup, it’s cheating us out of the opportunity to watch it under normal circumstances.
Last week it was Packers/Bears, two bitter rivals and two of the better teams in the National Football League, and what we got, because it was on Thursday, was a sloppy mess of two tired and unprepared teams. If that game had been on Sunday Night football or Monday Night football or time slot other than Thursday Night Football, it would have probably have been one of t...

Comedian and former Monday Night Football commentator Dennis Miller made an appearance today on the Rich Eisen Podcast.
During his interview, Miller questioned what NFL Roger Goodell is doing to clean up the NFL and make it safer.
“I don’t know what Goodell’s doing,” Miller said. “It is a violent game. And if he really believes what he’s believing, then I find what he’s...
I am the last person to judge, and I personally don’t find anything wrong with the below for any person not in the public spotlight. However, when Roger Goodell is your boss and you have thousands of kids looking up to you as a role model, you might want to rethink having pictures like the below floating around the internet. On the flip-side, if some of those kids are actually...
During the NFL's most recent offseason, the New York Giants reloaded their roster in preparation for another Super Bowl run and nearly every other team looked to rebuild in hopes of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at season's end. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints watched as their Super Bowl-caliber team was ripped apart in the name of player safety. The NFL's primary focus...
In 2010, when Roger Goodell suspended Ben Roethlisberger, there were a few rumblings. In 2011, when the NFL owners locked out NFLPA members, there were a few more. Now that the league is in the midst of a labor dispute with the referee’s union, the rumblings have become a full-throated roar. The man we were [...]
We’ve been saying this since the pre-season, but after this weekend’s games (and particularly the Monday night junk show that we all witnessed), it’s become more than painfully obvious that the replacement officials charged with policing the multi-billion dollar NFL are in over their heads … and it’s having a very real affect on the quality of the product on the field....
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns linebacker Scott Fujita says he plans to reschedule his postponed meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about the Saints bounty scandal.
Fujita had planned to speak with Goodell via a video conference from a Cleveland law office on Tuesday, but the league called it off because it wanted a face-to-face meeting. Fujita said he received an email Monday...
The worst fans in the NFL: (5.) Jets (4.) Eagles (3.) Cowboys (2.) Raiders (1.) Steelers. When you are rocking a ‘YOURMOM’ 69 jersey during the home opener, Steelers fan pushes to the front. Sure, Raiders fans will curb stomp each other, but Steelers fans just have to be vile, white sock wearing, trash. Does Roger Goodell want fans walking around a stadium with kids asking what...

Will Smith and Anthony Hargrove met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday about the Saints bounty scandal and Scott Fujita's meeting was postponed.
Fujita, now with the Cleveland Browns, is undergoing treatment for an injured left knee which he hurt during the preseason and couldn't come to New York, the NFLPA said.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the players left...
When Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell earlier today, he had reason to walk into the discussion with a positive outlook, especially in light of the recent decision by the league’s appeals panel to overturn the suspensions levied against him and several other players for their roles in New Orleans’ bounty program.
That outlook may have been...
In today’s NFL, there’s no shortage of things to complain about if you’re a player.
There’s the persistency of terrible officiating by replacement refs, concussions becoming as common as busted Matt Millen draft picks and murky discipline decisions by NFL czar Roger Goodell.
However, shiny new prodigy Robert Griffin III found a few more...
