Is this the meeting when Goodell gets on his knees, begs the players forgiveness, kisses their butts, and begs them to drop the cases before he embarrasses the NLF and himself some more? Or is Goodell going to pay hard to get?

'Goddell will meet with the players sometime next week in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement and that any punishment which will be handed out will take place after the meeting.'

Seems like a stupid CBA stipulation...fly up to my office just to say hello...then I will call you later with your punishment...

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if a deal has already been worked out. Goodell can't impose the same penalties because the judge will impose the TRO if he does especially after the panel ruled against Goodell and consistent with the Judge's comments so far. He can't do nothing because then he will look completely impotent. So he has this meeting and makes some statement about new evidence and/or the players being repentent and/or the interest of putting this behind, yada, yada, yada and he imposes some lesser penalty depending on the strength of what evidence he does have and he never has to reveal what that is. However, we will all know that how far he bends will depend on how much evidence he has.

Yeah, that is his most notable quality. I actually agree with many of his STATED goals. The problem is that there are so many things that he says and does that convince me that he doesn't mean any of it. There are ulterior motives and agendas.

This is just one example. Goodell has made helmet to helmet hits (spearing) a centerpiece of his so-called new emphasis on safety. He has handed out many fines for such hits. I don't know if you saw this past weekend when offensive player, Trent Richardson, put his helmet down in a classic case of spearing and made helmet to helmet contact with defensive player,K urt Coleman, causing Coleman's helmet to pop off and fly about ten yards. I GUARANTEE that if a defensive player did that he would receive a HUGE fine and/or be suspended. No penalty was called and I'll bet any amount of money no fine will be levied. It's just b.s. to CLAIM you care about safety, but spearing by offensive players is okay. I played the game. It didn't hurt any less being hit by an offensive player. A cheap or illegal hit by an offensive player was as dangerous and caused as much pain and injury as one by a defensive player. As long as Goodell continues to have his actions diverge from his words I will never trust the shady sob. The Saints situation is just another situation (in a long list) that makes me distrust him. He has tied multiple issues together intentionally creating confusion in a way apparently intended to gain an advantage in litigation in unrelated matters. There is NOTHING about his actions that supports his claims of it being a player safety issue. In what way has any player in the NFL been made safer by imposing such excessively long suspensions against a mere 4 players, none of whom touched the players alledgedly targeted. If he REALLY wants to make a valid claim that it is safety related, the EVIDENCE must necessarily be presented. What does it do to increase safety if you never PROVE that you punished players that intended to injure other players. It might make a difference to some fans, but there aren't any players that will do anything different. Players have to be thinking that they run a risk of being unfairly singled out and punished no matter what they do. So who would change the way they play?

Take any other job: If 4 mortagage salesmen appeared to be arbitrarily punished because there was a sense that some mortgage salesmen must have done something wrong, do you think that would change the behavior of any other mortgage salesmen? But if specific evidence is presented against 4 mortgage salemen showing exactly what they did and why it was wrong, that might have an effect!
