You think goodell has power now, pretty soon goodell will be dictating penalties for college players coming into the league. terelle pryor was the first shot fired but much more is coming. NCAA is the minor leagues for the NFL and thanks to nevin shapiro the whole landscape will change dramatically. think about it, Nevin Shapiro is the Rounders Teddy KGB to the U & the NCAA. What kinda trouble they in? As Mike McDermott answered "I'm in the worst kind, with the worst guy." Miami is likely to go down because they are the straw that broke the camel's back. Maybe they get the death penalty, maybe not but this is going to change college football and the NFL. Miami will have a squeaky clean program like PSU and they will never achieve a national championship in the next 50 years. People will say "kk99 people have been saying for years." I would agree but something has drastically changed, we are witnessing "D DAY for the NCAA". Look at what Sammy "the Bull" Gravano did to the Gambinos and John Gotti, he destroyed them. Nevin Shapiro has all the same tools at his disposal, this is an insider who knows everything and he has pulled the kimono open. This has never happened before and it is about to change the competitive landscape in college football. hell, you might even see PSU and Notre Dame win the BCS in the next five years:)
Goodell is not a dictator, he does not seize power it is constantly being given to him by idiots who can't follow the rules. First it was the high profile problems like rae carruth, lewis & vick, i mean when you kill your pregnant girlfriend it's pretty hard to make the NFL look good. Now b/c the NCAA is so incompetent and impotent, they are going to ask Goodell to help them out. Kinda like what Chamberlain did when he signed a non aggression pact with Hitler. Goodell will now have increased power over NCAA players coming into the league, he has already used the power on T Pryor. He insisted Pryor take the 5 game suspension and enter the supplemental draft or wait until April 2012. Even Rosenhaus had to bend over and take it, Goodell even shut up that guy, amazing!
Miami is not an isolated incident, there are Nevin Shapiros at every college. Until the last few years, the NCAA could keep the facade intact because there were no recent SMU scandals. U of Miami is on par with SMU but there was no insider snitch at SMU. It was a player from Pgh that lost his payola that toppled the SMU house of cards. But this Shapiro was using stolen money from a ponzi scheme to fund his alumni donations, $100 steak dinners, strippers, yachts & prostitutes. Not one player can deny it either (and none have), this clown has 10 years of financials, pics, emails & credit cards. "Bitch, you can't deny you were on his yacht, there are like 50 pics of you there!"
I am going to call this age "BN", before Nevin, and from now on it will be the new age of college football "AN", after Nevin. The NFLPA has already told Pryor to fight the 5 game suspension but he has already laid down and said he & Rosenhaus accept the penalty. Pryor has too much to hide, he is walking on eggshells so he is just giving the power to Goodell. Goodell just keeps raking pots as others fold, blame idiots like Pryor who just had to have all the tats, new cars & latest prada.
If football players keep f*cking up so much pretty soon Goodell will be president.
