He's done enough for plenty of us to not like him, that said the NFL has done extremely well under his reign so I can't complain too much.


Don't like him, that's fine. What the sensible people are tired of is EVERYTHING being blamed on Goodell, even when he doesn't have a say in the matter.

My favorite is when people call Goodell greedy when fines come out. Laughing


I mean, he does wear nice suits. Like, $10,000 suits. How DOES he get all that money? It...it HAS to be the fines! Never mind the guy has been in high ranking positions in the NFL for the last 10+ years and is probably a multi-millionaire - Goodell NEEDS that 10 grand RIGHT NOW!

Laughing

Maybe Brady did it because it was a defense tactic? I think he was mainly guarding himself when he slid. I don't think Brady was trying to hurt the guy, I think he just didn't want to get crushed. Laughing


Guarding yourself is one thing, extending your leg and actually kicking, or attempting to kick someone in Brady's cases is a completely different story.

What Brady did was the latter, and when you watch a GIF of it, it's completely obvious. You don't extend your leg and "twerk" it (or whatever that motion is called) when you're just defending yourself.

It's like he's a pimp. Throw on a purple pinstripe suit, fur jacket, purple felt fedora with a feather in it, given him a cane, a ring with the NFL shield on it...yeah. YEAAAAAAH.

Greatest idea ever. Roger Goodell, as - R-GOODY pimp of the league. Very Happy

It's like saying Colin Kaepernick judo chopping a rusher in the throat is guarding him. When you're guarding yourself, generally you don't attack the other person.

Considering that he did not actually injure anyone the amount seems fine.

It was illegal, but lets not act like Brady has a kicking leg strong enough to sever Reed's leg. Ive been kicked like that, and while it hurts, its far from a career ender Laughing More of an "OUCH! YOU [JERK]!" type of illegal hit.


Of course it could have ended his career. It was straight to the knee on a slide with a lot of momentum. Saying Brady's kicking is weak is irrelevant. A man running full speed and sliding with an outstretched leg is strong enough to do serious damage

Especially considering Ed could've, have Brady made serious contact, landed on his head/neck, and with his impinged neck, it very well could have ended his career right then and there.

Yeah. Not to mention that if Reed did fall on his head, the force could've been so great that it plunged Reed into the Earth's core, causing the planet to explode and end all life. Brady is a scary man, he should be suspended indefinitely from the NFL for this. I mean, the possible repercussions are apocalyptic.

Some people might kick their leg out when they think they're about to get hit. I'm not even a big Brady fan but I'm siding with him on this one. I don't think it was intentional.

Meh, considering Brady doesn't have any on or off the field issues I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on that slide. It was stupid on his part to do it, no discussion there but I don't think he is the type to want to injure another player.
