herr roger is all about the player safety. that's all well and good. we all love football, but would prefer to see these players play for many years (hines, farrior...) rather than be great but only last a year or two (kendrell bell anyone?).
but given the choice of safety or making money, it's clear where goodell sides...
so, my modest proposal is that for an 18 game schedule year, goodell gets fined for every single injury that occurs in weeks 18 and 19.
the nfl wants us to believe that:
a) the NFL wants to improve player safety
b) players will still play 20 games a year (16 + 4 preseason now, 18 + 2 preseason proposed)
ok. that sounds like cute math. so, simply put, if you are going to fine deebo for "unsafe" hits on qb's, then goodell should be fined for every injury in the extra games.
simple, straight forward, and most of, consistent with the words that have been coming out of his mouth.
that is all.
