Patriots In The Way Of Goodell Turning NFL Into WWE

ope or hate. Those are the only two reasons why anyone watches professional football. Sure, there are the perverts (like me) who watch for the grace of the athletes, the speed, the power and the sheer size combined into explosive packages that collide once every forty seconds – but the casual fan, the ones who combine to comprise 95% of the National Football League’s total revenue...

NFL Network analyst blasts Goodell, calls Deflategate a 'witch hunt'

Being critical of Roger Goodell is one of the easiest things that someone working in sports commentary can do.  Goodell has the popularity of an Ohio State superfan walking through the streets of Ann Arbor, Michigan at the moment.  His handling of DeflateGate has done the impossible and turned the four-time Super Bowl champion Patriots into sympathetic victims of an incompetent...

Roger Goodell defers to Ted Wells on question about false PSI report

Roger Goodell blatantly lied to make Tom Brady look dishonest

    There are plenty of things Tom Brady could be lying about when it comes to his alleged role in Deflategate. But after skimming through the transcript from Brady’s appeal hearing, it has become obvious that Roger Goodell tried to make Brady look more dishonest than he actually was.
