My outlook on GODell's been posted many times so I'll refrain from retyping it all, but as far as the Pats go, most of the bs problems which have haunted us this season stem from his complete mishandling of Spygate. He's been trying to compensate ever since, but rather than
we should jump forward to the present and apply some of his inconsistencies in a more general way.
He's imposed more rules of play than any one person can reasonably keep track of, yet the entire league is becoming besmirched with season-ending injuries. More rules inherently implies the opposite effect;fewer of these kinds of injuries, yet the opposite is happening.
His mantra's always been "preserving the integrity of the game" yet his actions denote "changing" the game. He also fails to address officiating problems,instead opting for the silencing any attempts to address the problem by fining anyone who dares question it or speak out about it.
I'm also not too warm and fuzzy about his injection of the military, retired or not, into the sporting world.
Bottom line for me...he's taking the NFL in a direction that should be making a whole lot of people begin to feel somewhat uncomfortable.
Anyone who heads up a multi-billion dollar industry like the NFL should be subject to much more intense scrutiny imho. When there's that much money and influence floating around, the person in charge needs a few more checks and balances in place; no one person should possess so much power.
