Even George Bush is like damn homie…. There are various reasons why players in general don’t like Roger Goodell, but I think it is summed up best by Steelers James Harrison. “I think it’s obvious that I disapprove.” Harrison has been fined more than $100,000 in his career for hits the NFL has deemed against the rules. “I feel like what he’s doing is not totally for the safety of players. … A lot of stuff they’ve done, [such as] fining guys crazy amounts of money for helmet-to-helmet hits and all that and saying you’re doing this for the safety of players. But yet you want to add extra games to the regular season. “In the true interest of player safety, I would have no issue with it. But that’s not what it’s about. It’s about money,” he told the newspaper. “Who hired Roger Goodell?” The question you have to ask yourself is has the NFL gotten better under Roger Goodell?  The interesting thing is that Goodell said he wanted to crack down on player arrests and improve safety. Has he accomplished both of those goals? I can’t really say that he has.  Players are still doing stupid things on their days off and concussions are at an all time high.  Is that Goodell’s fault, tough to say, but the players obviously hold him responsible.
