Is turning into a joke. The commish is going to mess up a good product. He is letting his ego get in the way of running a good league.

No wonder Edwards was stumping for more money, he will probably have to refinance to pay off Goodell at the end of the year.

Maybe Ray Edwards ought to learn how to tackle. He's been playing this game for about 20 years and hasn't learned that spearing is against the rules. He always seems to take a dumb penalty when they can least afford it.

Goodell is an arrogant control freak.

This league is beginning to lose me, as this stuff keeps on happening. Edwards is a particular target, it's very clear. It's ridiculous...he brings up a great point about the OL almost never gettng fined or even flagged for stuff they do.

That is a good question, I wondered about that as well a while ago so I looked it up.

Basically the money goes to charity. The NFL and the NFLPA split it 50-50 and then distibute it to 3 different charities:

1.Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Center.

2.Vince Lombardi Cancer Research Center.

3.And a trust for the NFLPA.

The money goes to all worthy causes which makes people feel better about its distribution. One question is,is why players have such a hard time collecting workmans comp from the NFL?

Our little sweetie Goodell is looking out for the future of the game. He will change it to a video game with all kinds of jazzy sound effects, and do away with barbaric old physical contact. Those of us who lived in the twentieth century and respected strength, speed, and courage will soon die off off anyway.
