The bottom line plain and simple is that since he became commissioner of the most popular of the four major North American sports leagues in 2006, he has fallen well short of my expectations as a fan. From the snafu of the Ray Rice investigation to Deflategate, Goodell has made a couple of things very clear. He is very inept for one reason or another at overseeing the various investigations of alleged criminal activity and his handling of numerous player suspensions is at times beyond comprehension! We all know that 2 games was more lenient than it should have been given the evidence and circumstances of the Ray Rice case. As far as the Deflategate episode goes, that is a totally different situation which I will expand on in a future post.
In all likelihood however, Goodell's job status will remain safe as long as the NFL keeps making huge gobs of money under his watch. If the tide starts to turn the other way I would give serious consideration to finding a replacement for Goodell's services. There's no telling what will happen on the next episode of 'As Roger Goodell's World Turns.' Your guess is as good as mine.
