Negative, he reports to the people who pay is salary. The fans and the media. If either of those two factions turn on Goodell he would be fugged. Thats not going to happen, but you kind of asked.

The owners and players union also unanimously vote him in. Despite what the NFLPA is doing now in trying to protect Vilma and company, MOST players don't want bounty programs in the NFL. Who the hell wants their multimillion dollar career ended for a stupid bounty worth a couple thousand dollars?

people were saying all along that the punishments were going to be a statement and the Saints*** made an example of for anyone even thinking about doing this in the future?

are they over-zealous? maybe, but considering the magnitude of it all and the steps they have been taking to try and curb serious brain traumas and the dealings that they have had legally with players who are suing the league because of long term effects from injuries....it makes sense that they be as heavy handed as they are.

it's necessary to help achieve what they are trying to accomplish.

i'm not going to judge them for trying to protect players and the league from unnecessary harm. i 100% approve of what they have done and i think it will have the desired effect of helping stop that type of activity in the future. it will still go on, i'm sure...but we shouldn't be seeing anymore of it organized the way it was.

if i was in their (the league's) shoes, i would absolutely have done the same thing.

if anything the players that aren't indicted in all of this should be applauding the league and goodell for taking it so seriously and the NFLPA should be totally on board with the punishments if they are serious about the health and welfare of the majority of those players they represent.

I agree completely.

will also add that if the Saints* had stopped it all when the NFL first asked them to, then I probably would feel different.

They were asked to stop, they didn't. I'm honestly surprised there weren't more suspenions, for other coaches and players.

I really don't care if the NFL releases enough evidence for others to support their position or not. the NFL doesn't need public approval for what they are doing.

If the NFL was that worried about public approval, they'd fix the atrocious officiating.

Lol

Isn't it true that these players still claim there was no bounty program? If not, we definitely know that they did in the beginning, even when the mastermind behind the program apologized for it. So they are already down for having lied about the program, yet they cry fowl for the punishments Goodell has brought upon them. Saying it's a smear campaign. I think these players should have some dignity, and serve their time. Get it over with, because crying over it is doing even more harm to their reputation. It's proven the program happened, own up.

I love my Panthers and boy do I hate the Saints*, but there was more evidence at the Salem witch trials than what the league has presented thus far. This smells of some type of greater agenda going on; too much orchestrated media coverage and severe penalties for something lacking so much concrete facts.

I think the league's power structure wanted full attention on this because they are looking to somehow change the nature of the game, who knows maybe one day hits on the quarterback will be outlawed... maybe no need or advantage with having a running Quarterbacks at that time... :cam:

As each day goes by the NFL looks more and more like they were way out of line in their accusations toward the Saints*. People like Mike Florio (attorney and commentator) is questioning the ethics of Roger Goodell and if he has bumbled this entire process. The public is now supporting the players as the lack of real evidence is alarming. So called witnesses stating that the NFL twisted their statements. The Saints* fans http://www.nola.com/Saints*/index.ssf/2012/06/the_bounty_scandal_has_fanned.html and team are rallied like never before and are on a mission to win a Super Bowl played in their home town with a defense vastly improved and the most explosive offense in history returning everyone along with new additions. Brees about to get his contract finished. Who would have thought that with all of the off season issues that the Saints* would be in the position they are today? It just goes to show you that people should always let things play out before rushing to judgement.

So proud of how the players and fans have not allowed the bully process to go unchallenged and looking forward to another Lombardi trophy in the big easy!
