Roger Goodell Logic

tom brady tweet4 games is a steeper penalty than what was originally handed down to Ray Rice, from the NFL Commissioner.

ICYMI: Rice knocked his [now] wife unconscious in an elevator.

How do those meetings go, that determine suitable disciplinary action? I picture a large oval mahogany table, leather chairs… 10-15 super important rich guys shootin’ the shit, eating expensive snacks.

As my imagination starts getting extra creative… I picture them all cackling, their old-rich-pretentious cackles when they start getting down to business. 

Roger Goodell Laughing Humor
[via: sportressofblogitude.com]
The punishments over the last few seasons for NFL players are ridiculously wide-ranged, no rhyme or reason. What we’ve learned from this whole Deflate Gate scandal, is that the worse offense of all, isn’t raping or beating women.

…It’s not cooperating with the big guys upstairs […not Jesus]. 

Detroit Lions defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh stomped on Green Bay Packer’s quarterback, Aaron Rogers ankle and ended up having his one game suspension reduced to a fine.

The Atlanta Falcons were streaming in fake crowd noise during home games – ultimately trying to gain an advantage over their opponent & were handed down a punishment of the loss of a fifth-round draft pick in 2016, and the team was fined $350,000.

Are you telling me Roger Goodell, that Matt Ryan had no knowledge of this? Not even possibly?

The Minnesota Viking’s were caught heating up game footballs during a cold game in November last year… They received a warning.

[Roger Goodell Is A Shit-Eating Moron]

I’m not a Patriots fan, and I have never cheered for Tom Brady… but, Roger Goodell is lower on the totem pole.

In my own [and Yahoo!’s] perfect world…

Tom Brady would retire to punish Roger Goodell & the NFL.

Get It Together, NFL

I’m not pleased there’s only one Sunday left for delicious snacks & Bloody Marys before noon. Disappointment is inevitable after the Superbowl concludes; regrettably, this season coming to an end feels different. It seems some of the magic was sucked out of the whole NFL experience this season.

Who do I blame? 1e9beef6559fb5070a0824043e122306

Roger Goodell and anyone else who was part of the hypocritical madness that was the 2014-2015 football season.

The plethora of pull-out-of-a-hat punishments that were handed down this season is outstanding. No rhyme or reason. No consistency. No accountability when questioned.

Fans: just throw your blinders on and enjoy the games. 

That’s what I feel it’s come down to.

I’m fully able to make sense that the NFL is a business; a big fat money-loving business. I grasp the concept that life isn’t fair & sometimes shit happens that people need to “just deal with”.

The latest mockery shown by the National Football League exceeds the ordinary, meh-it-happens, bologna.

The NFL fined Marshawn Lynch $20k for grabbing his groin, but the league is selling prints of the photo.

What?

I’m not surprised Marshawn Lynch keeps his mouth shut, can you blame him? No wonder he doesn’t trust the media. He can’t even trust the organization who makes up all these rules and regulations & in their next breath, attempt to achieve some sort of monetary gain from the “offensive-misdeed”.

Grabbing your crotch for .5 seconds in celebration… is not family friendly. That seems to be the the argument.

Guess what? Neither is the Viagra commercial that comes on 3 times per game. I’d rather explain Marshawn Lynch grabbing his junk to my 8 year old, before I explain what erectile dysfunction is.

Richard Sherman & Doug Baldwin explain NFL hypocrisy the best.

By The Way… Go Seahawks!

Adrian Peterson: Barred From All Viking Team Activities

I do not think Adrian Peterson is a child abuser & my opinion remains the same.

I woke up this morning and found out that the Minnesota Viking’s have banned Adrian Peterson from participating in any and all team activities & placed him on the exempt list while his legal woes are worked out.

This, coming after Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton released a statement calling Adrian Peterson’s actions, “a public embarrassment” to the Vikings and the state of Minnesota. I have to imagine Mr. Dayton is pretty upset over all of this considering the amount of money his state has invested in the new stadium – this can’t look good.

I’m so tired of the public jury, sponsors & ignorant people… playing judge. People continue to base their judgment on the shock value of one act of conduct. People so rapidly want to throw Adrian Peterson to the wolves & call him a child abuser – the public mob is out of control.

In my opinion, intent plays a role. If you believe that Adrian Peterson maliciously punished his child with a switch with the intent of nothing more than to abuse him (making him a child abuser) – that’s ignorant. His intent was to discipline him – and he went overboard. He has been honest & truthful about the event since it happened & agrees that the injury he caused was excessive.

I have never been punished with a switch, nor have I ever used one – but I’d like to meet the person who grew up in Texas who was & a mark was not left. Everyone is so tied up in the marks that were left on this little boy.  All over the place I see comments, “The pictures were FOUR DAYS LATER!!”  Flesh wounds develop over time – scabs form, bruises form… the amount of time that passed before the pictures were snapped don’t make them any more dramatic.

Shock Value – people love it.

For all we know, Adrian Peterson’s kid still views his dad as Superman. Who knows?!? You don’t. I don’t. Public Opinion it just black & white. This issue of phsyical discipline and child abuse in Texas is not black & white.

No one will convince me that Adrian Peterson is a child abuser.

If it is your own personal moral belief that physical discipline is wrong – that’s okay, you’re entitled to that. If Adrian Peterson believes in physical discipline… in Texas, where it is legal – he’s not a monster or a child abuser. He’s a dad who was disciplining his child how he saw fit – and took it too far unintentionally.

The real problem lies with the way the National Football League has been handling these situations. Just yesterday, I listened to Viking’s general manger, Rick Spielman and head coach, Mike Zimmer talk about how Adrian Peterson has a right to play football while the legal process plays out. Suddenly, sponsors start pulling out because of the public opinion & shock value… and suddenly Adrian isn’t allowed to participate in any team activity.

Money, Money, Money.

I took a similar stance regarding Ray Rice. He sat down with coaches & NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell shortly after it happened. He flat out said he punched Janay Rice in the face in that elevator – Goodell handed down a 2 game suspension. What happened after the video came out and there was public outcry?

These athletes are not in the right in their actions but they don’t deserve to be lynched and discarded as monsters by the public court of opinion. I want to know how many people who are calling Adrian Peterson a child abuser have educated themselves on the details behind it all. If you did…guess what? You still don’t know half of it… none of us do. We were not there, we don’t know the situations or actions that led up to anything. It’s not our right to play judge.

See ya later, Ray Rice.

Ray Rice is a terrible person…and if you don’t agree with me, watch this video. (As if you haven’t already…)

Gosh, I’d love some audio to go with that. I can’t help but wonder what he was saying to her & cringe.

cringe

When this scuffle went down Janay Palmer was engaged to Ray Rice & has since married him; Smart Girl. The most romantic little aspect of the wedding was that it happened one day after Rice was indicted by a grand jury on third-degree aggravated assault.

How Dreamy…

In all reality – what did people expect to see when this video flooded our news-feeds? Did we think he shoved her? Did we think he slapped her? No… she was knocked out; we don’t need to see this video to know the caliber of the situation in that elevator at the Atlantic casino.

duh

If anyone actually believes that this video was not seen by NFL Staff before today, they need to wake up & smell the way of the business. The video became public & they realized… People are mad. Ray Rice was let go by the Baltimore Ravens this afternoon and news came quickly after, that Roger Goodell has indefinitely suspended Ray Rice from the NFL.

bye bye

Thank goodness for that video…because the reasoning behind a man dragging a woman’s unconscious body out of an elevator – surely needed explanation.

“See ya later, NFL Career.” Said, Ray Rice.
