Re: How'd that prediction pan out?
How do I feel about this: I think Roger Goodell has done a very good job for the league and deserves the extension

I think that Roger has done what the league wants. The exception, of course, is when a particular owner is on the bad end of a Roger ruling. For example, Jerry Jones was pretty upset about losing his running back, but I doubt that the rest of the owners (with some exceptions) had any problem with that.

However, under Goodell, the league's ability to deal out punishments is severely messed up because of lack of standards. Gronk's punishment is a prime example. Gronkowski gets a one-game suspension for a deliberate, non-football whacking of another player, and now it becomes difficult to discipline players who are simply careless. My guess is that if the other suspensions had come first, Gronk would have gotten a longer suspension.

Not surprised that Goodell is staying. Maybe if the next TV contract is lower, the owners will scrutinize him a bit harder.
