ROGER GOODELL AND THE NFL= LIP SERVICE

Posted by HG on May 15, 2007

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been hell bent on cleaning up his league and it’s roger-goodell.jpgimage. The suspensions of Chris Henry and Pacman Jones coupled with the “get your shit together” sit down with Michael Vick have been all over the headlines for weeks. NFL coaches and fans have applauded Rog’s new rules.. but are the rules really in effect?

The code of conduct seems only to apply to players that have screwed up numerous times and are on the general public’s radar. The new league toughness apparently doesn’t apply to future NFL draftees. The New England Patriots drafted known head stomper Brandon Meriweather (and traded for Randy Moss). The Chiefs, Niners, Browns, Bucs, and Bills all drafted questionable character guys (Tank Tyler, Tarell Brown, Eric Wright, Tanard Jackson, and Marshawn Lynch..gulp..respectively). The Green Bay Packers signed two undrafted prospects last week.. One guy got in trouble in college for possession of marijuana and a stolen handgun, the other failed drug tests (marijuana) in Junior College and at Ole Miss.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not some tight ass that wants to see all of these “evil doers” out of the league. I believe in second chances.. Hell, even third or fourth chances depending on the offense. I think it’s wack that Goodell grandstands like he’s “mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore” when it comes to Pacman and Chris Henry, but he’ll pose for pictures on draft day with guys that violate his code.
