In Topic: Responding to adversity

I doubt the GH saga is really much of a distraction to the team. Most of them probably realized which way it was headed 10 days ago, and have gone about their business

 

The greater concern is a letdown, thinking Pittsburg is bad and can't beat us. We've only played 2 games, and while I agree we look to be one of the league's best, this is no time to become complacent.


In Topic: The Shutout

In spite of their performance over the last 6 quarters, the Steelers should be good offensively this year. They have a nice array of weapons and a powerful run game.

 

That said, yes, I still think we win big, but pitching a shutout this week may be very difficult.

He's not mentioned in the axis of evil for some reason.

 

Because he hasn't even been charged yet.


In Topic: Goodell needs to be fired

...and maybe the players that are beating their wives and children?

 

Of course they are to blame for their actions. That goes without saying.

 

But the current poo storm is a direct result of how the commissioner has handled things. That is the difference between this case and the dozens of other cases over the last 10 to 20 years. First he goes ridiculously light on Rice, then goes hard on him when the video comes out, then erroneously says no one in the league office has seen the video, then appoints a special investigator, etc. etc. etc.

 

He's been all over the map for the last 6 months, and there is still no clear idea going forward what they will do differently. Frankly at this point, it appears sponsors like Raddison are forcing the league to do what they should have done without outside pressure. That is a clear lack of leadership.

I'd agree.

For the record, I'm not a Goodell hater. But I think the damage done by his handling of these situations is just too great, and irrevocable without someone major falling on their sword.

 

I'm not a hater either. But here we are, hardcore football fans, people who follow what goes on in the league very closely, and none of us really have a clue what the league is doing. What is the position going forward? What is the strategy of pending cases? How do you justify sitting some players for up to a year for marijuana, and yet give out a 2 game suspension for someone that knocked out his fiance.

 

And then to top it off, to not intervene with the Vikings when they made the incredibly boneheaded decision this week that AP would be re-activated, that is just mind boggling to me.

 

I don't know of any CEO of any respectable company that could survive after doing what Goodell has done (or failed to do).
