My guess is this situation has shocked Goodell in the way it's being blown way out of proportion. I can't believe he bargained for the potential to out the entire league by having former players, coaches, and GMs discuss that fact that stealing signs and the willingness to do anything including "cheating" to get an edge has been a league tradition far longer than Monday Night Football. The resulting media firestorm is clearly not the attention the NFL wants at this time. What Goodell fails to understand is that he's put the spotlight on the league where various types of "cheating" are now being admitted to since the inception of the league. Given that Goodell made pains to go out of his way to show he wasn't favoring the management or a particular team in meting out the punishment for the video taping rules violation, doesn't he now have a larger dilemma on his hands? Considering this, I would imagine if he were inclined to pursue the review of the whole video library of the Patriots, he should then be bound to review the video libraries of all NFL teams. Otherwise, he will come across as having focused on one team and one team only in light of information indicating it is far more widespread. His only move at this time is to announce that there will be no further investigation for violations in the past, and that the league will be vigilant and strict in preventing and responding to future violations. How many people want to bet that there is a lot of overtime being spent by every other team in the league to clean out their video libraries this weekend in order to eliminate evidence? This situation is now way out of control. I suggest the NFL and the NBA currently have a lot in common.
