NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is concerned that comments made by President-elect Donald Trump about women will only make the league’s attempts to curtail domestic violence more difficult.
“It makes my job harder at home too,” Goodell said. “I have twin daughters and a wife so I have to explain that to them. So yes, on that front. Does it make it harder publicly? Listen, I think our country has to have more respect for one another, and we have to unite.”
But it’s real. Roger Goodell. The soulless, charisma-free, dry-mouthed, animatronic drone who’s enabled a Pro Bowl roster’s worth of savage, sadistic, wife beating cowards, claims he’s worried about how to explain Donald Trump’s language to the ladies in the Goodell household.
But honest to God, Roger Goodell is worried about the message Trump sends? Goodell. Our Goodell. The man who is basically an unindicted co-conspirator in the reigns of terror unleashed upon actual women by Terrell Suggs, Ray Rice, Greg Hardy and Josh Brown. The man who has a policy that says any act of domestic violence in the NFL is punishable with a six game suspension that he has never once enacted. Not only that, but who went to federal court to the tune of millions in legal fees just to uphold a rule that says he can do whatever the hell he damn well wants to do and is answerable to no one. Nevertheless, when Brown was terrorizing his wife and step sons and they had to be taken to a panic room by NFL security at the Pro Bowl hotel, The CommissionerBot gave him one lousy game. One. But The Donald once used the P-word to Billy Bush inside a bus and he’s in a panic about the damage it’s going to do to HIS ability to stem violence against women like he’s some kind of anti-domestic violence crusader. Unbelievable.
My only question now is, where do I go to protest against Goodell? #NotMyCommissioner
When they go low, we go high! (Michelle Obama)
One, two, three, four, five. I would kick your ass. (Bill Russell)
No one is perfect. That includes both you and I. (Yu Darvish)
I think that's a question of when, not if.
The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.
