    I hope most of you out there get to watch this....unbelievable...this man LIES through his teeth on a national news program...the first 3 minutes of this segment are the most blatant attempt at obfuscation by a media personality in American television history...presented to the American public as F-A-C-T....I'm stunned.

    Invoking the name of Johnny Unitas...claiming the Colts as the team of his youth...bringing up "memories" of he and his dad, Charles, attending Baltimore Colt games every Sunday....holy jeezus....delivered with a straight face...even claims Dad was a season ticket holder...which he WAS...at NY Jet home games!!

    I can see now why the owners re-upped his contract for the next 9 years....he is,without doubt, the best straight faced LIAR in any business anywhere in the U.S.

    Fact: Roger Goodell went to high school in Bronxville NY, Westchester County..an hour NORTH of NYC

    Fact: well known for his largesse with classmates,taking them to home Jet games where they viewed the contests from Senator Charles Goodell's box...what, the Jets played the Colts every week he was in high school??? He was actually in Baltimore at Colts games while his friends in NY where he lived and went to school and played sports went to the Jets games in HIS father's box??

    I mean...HOLY SCHNIKES!!!

    I believe you, but what is Goodell's motive for lying - I mean besides that lying just comes naturally.:)

    Baltimore is close to Washington D.C.

    His father was a senator who likely spent a great deal of time in Washington D.C.

    I really don't know anything about Goodell's childhood, but it's not a stretch to assume he may have spent some time in the area of the capitol.

    Was he at a private school in Bronxville? Because his father is from Jamestown, far away from downstate. That's the region he represented as a congressman.

    exactly to the point (of course I'm over the top 100% conspiracy theory about this person anyway)...Dad spends a lot of time in Washington...UNTIL he's voted out during Nixon's 2nd term....Roger the Liar was born in 1959!!! The timeline DOESN'T fit!!! It's pure horsecrap!! A 9/10/11/12 year old kid traveling to Baltimore on weekends from just north of NYC where he goes to school with all his classmates...all budding NY sports fans...but Roger is a HUGE Colts fan...and then in high school, there's the box paid for by Daddy...for Jet homes games...yup...HUUUUUUUUUGE Colts fan...excuse me if I don't believe a word of this crap.

    His father represented THAT region of western NY...Roger went to public school in Bronxville, in Westchester County where he graduated as a three sport star and class president...he was BORN in Jamestown....c'mon man....think about it...big NY high school sports star, class president, Mr. Popularity..."yeah, I'm a big COLTS FAN guys and gals"...like that EVER happened anywhere in NY school history...please....it's an obvious attempt at revisionism using 60 Minutes as the vehicle

    I know, man, I know. I used to snort a lot of Coke, but the bubbles messed up my sinuses. The worst time was when I got a little piece of ice caught there and the brain freeze was so bad I thought I was gonna die. :eek:

    I can't believe it.
    So, you've never watched 60 minutes before?
    Lying is de rigueur, e.g. Dan Rather

    OK...so there's a little Pollyanna inside my 6' 3" frame....I'd have thought they would at least dig a little deeper....I knew something was rotten when the host said "Roger got his start as an intern in the NFL offices"...uh...that would be a resounding NO...he got his start as an employee of the NY Jets...I HAVE the hard copy proof of this here in my home office. After the years of painstaking digging by Patriot fans here at Patsfans, all this material was stickied up top.I personally sent hundreds of e-mails to Boston sports media AND the NFL offices on Park Avenue in NY asking WHY this connection was never revealed...the result is a complete revision of the Wikipedia bio that NOW shows that Goodell STARTED as an intern for the league...THEN interned for one year with the Jets...and THEN went back to work for the NFL. Never mind I have the hard copy printout from Wikipedia stating his first job was an intern for the Jets....NOW Wiki has THIS timeline on its page...and every link to Goodell's history NOW links to THIS bio on Wiki.

    Now think about this...I have his bio as "began as intern for the NY Jets and left after one year to work PR in NFL offices"...THAT is what EXISTED 2 years ago on the Wiki bio. NOW, it says, well, he worked a year for the NFL...THEN left to work one year for the Jets...THEN came back to the NFL...and the rest is history. How many of you people out there have ever heard of a job timeline like this??.."Yeah, so I worked for IBM for a year and then got a job at Best Buy and then I went back to IBM and now I rule the world"...right...this is so friggin' arrogantly transparent it could only have been dreamt up by Omissioner Clouseau himself. If I didn't have a stuffed folder filled with "Spygate" articles I never would have guessed this had happened.

    Looks like it's back to the letter writing campaign for Joe Kerr...as a lifelong NFL fan and monetary contributor to this business enterprise I want ANSWERS....you can't fake 1040's....where was his REAL first job??? I think we have that right to know once and for all.

    Well, please excuse me if I believe Roger Goodell probably knows more about Roger Goodell's childhood than you do.

    First you say the Wikipedia entry is incorrect, then you use Wikipedia as the reference which "proves" what you say is correct. :rofl: :rofl:

    Dude, seriously. I'd say this borders on ridiculously obsessive behavior, but you crossed that border miles ago.
    I don't think anyone really gives a **** what he was doing 30 years ago as he bounced back and forth as a low level intern in NY.
