SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle


Somebody is actually watching the Giants play the Redskins. Field condition is probably the most interesting facet of that contest.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Pete Carroll had another acid flashback last night. Fourth and 4 with 7 seconds left no timeouts and trailing the team you need to beat for wildcard positioning, why not run a fake field goal where you hand the ball off to Luke Willson for his first running attempt of the season (? his career) whom you've chosen because he is the slowest player on either team who isn't an offensive lineman.

Yes, everyone was fooled.

ESPN: NFL On Brink of Civil War

Sure. Get rid of Goodell and bring someone in who will just yield to the 2 owners who feel they and their players are entitled to special treatment and are therefore above any form of league enforced punishment.

The NFL doesn't need to spend large sums of money, or create any "law enforcement branches", if it is allowed to enforce it's rules. It does if it needs to defend itself against the few franchises that feel they are above the rules that all others abide by.

The Niners won a game?

Jed York will be busy this week increasing ticket prices AND purging the roster and coaching staff of individuals earning close to or above league average salary.

SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

but I'd love to see Goodell and his lousy leadership gone

And if he gets pushed out because of Jones, who is only worried about money and griping currently because of the Elliot situation, who will the NFL get to replace Goodell?

Think about it. If Jones and Kraft have enough power to influence or overrule every decision that the individual who supposedly is in place to ensure and enforce league integrity makes then why even bother having such a position. If the goal is only money then eliminate the ability of the league to fine or suspend for cheating or conduct detrimental to the league.

If the "situations" exposed by Goodell were not tied to Dallas or New England Jones and Kraft would be applauding the commissioner.

I expect that rich guys like NFL owners make threats to sue all the time to throw their weight around

NFL owners AND players who have been advised by their lawyers that they may be better off by challenging decisions legally rather than accepting responsibility for their actions. Owners are typically businessmen who are successful because they used any means possible to crush their opposition including litigation. This does not work for athletes.

Jerry Jones Leads NFL Owner Revolt Against Roger Goodell

Jerry Jones is no voice of reason. He is the worst example of an owner who hires any individual regardless of current or previous character issues. He and other owners then bitch that Goodell isn't doing a good enough job cleaning up the mess they have created. From a financial perspective Jones and Kraft are great for the league but neither accept responsibility for anything but accumulating personal wealth.
