    Any speculation that Goodell holds a grudge against Belichick and the Pats?

    Funny, you go to the Jets board and they constantly complain Goodell is in the Pats' back pocket and that Goodell is always out to get the Jets (only a Jets fan would think that of course).

    'SECRETLY videotaping"????????????

    Classic example of not refuting/correcting a false accusation right from the start which in turn has converted this smear to now become a 'fact'. :mad:

    silly witch hunt,

    i wish there were more coaches like jimmy johnson that told it like it was, cower was pretty cool too, although he didn't admit taping, still props to those guys. Goodell makes me sick, eff him and the 18 game season.

    Seeing how King's SI story is a retrospective of Goodell's tenure as commissioner, I'm wondering whether those are new quotes or quotes from three years ago?

    If they are old quotes I don't recall Goodell saying that - though there was so much going on, with the media writing new stories on the topic on a daily basis, then it would be easy to not remember him uttering those words.

    On the other hand, if Goodell just said those things now, I have to ask: why? What is the point in bringing that up now? What is the upside? I don't see any - unless it is some sort of personal vendetta.

    If Goodell did make that statement recently, then to me it is further proof that he is biased against Belichick, and by association the Patriots since BB is the Pats HC and GM. For the commissioner of the NFL to hold that kind of bias against one organization is a very dangerous thing.

    Ironically he rails about integrity, but his making this kind of a public stand against Belichick (and therefore, the Patriots) could harm the integrity of the NFL more than any other action or inaction on his part since he has taken office.

    He's just pissed because BB stonewalled his ballwashin' buddies at ESPN.

    why doesn't he do something about the sound being blatently pumped into those silly domes or is that legal now. I did here collinsworth openly say during a broadcast the crowd noise being pumped in was too loud for both teams.

    Poor Roger, how many people has he deceived. He made this way bigger than it should have been and now he is whining about it.

    JHC, let it go. Let it goooo!

    In trying to figure out whether Goodell's comments were new or old, I googled "He went out and stonewalled the press. I feel like I was deceived". Every link that came up was current, so I am going to presume that Goodell made that statement to King over the past week or so for this story.

    While that may indeed be the way Goodell honestly feels in his heart about the situation, as the commissioner he needs to be able to think about the effect his words have before he speaks. I don't see any benefit to the NFL in his saying anything beyond some generic, 'we dealt with it, we instituted some policies, everything is good, we have a great product' type of statement.

    To me Goodell's statement just shows he lacks composure and maturity; he sounds like a vindictive teen who is still holding a grudge from three years ago. If he had/has a problem, then settle it privately behind closed doors. Gossiping about it through the press is highly unprofessional.

    If the Pats had fired Belichick after the SB42 debacle, like they should have, this issue would be dead and buried. Thanks Bill.....

    Can't wait to see what kind of fine BB gets for his response to these comments.

    Your status should go from 2nd teamer to cut. You come across as completely misinformed.

    There will be a time that BB will need to move on/step down but it sure wasn't after an 18-1 season and it sure as heck isn't now.
