    Yikes! Goodell is really making an example of all parties involved in this fiasco.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    I can't say for certain these suspensions are appropriate; especially since i don't have all of the facts. I do believe there is something wrong with a system where an appeal takes one right back to the person who ordered the sanction to begin with. Goodell has too much power
    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. I should know. I've been there.

    You sound like a saints fan to be honest.

    Goodell is fine, he is the commissioner of the nfl and needs that power to keeps things clean and in order. Do you think any of these suspensions would hold if the nflpa had the last call on the appeals?? hell no, they would get paid off and throw a slap on the wrist. Goodell put his foot down and put an end to it, all footballs fans should applaud him for having the courage to do what he feels is right and not be scared of the nfl pa and backlash from butt hurt saints fans. All commissioners in sports have alot of power and they do so for a reason, to not let the nflpa screw up the nfl. Its a private business, no one forces you to watch the nfl or play for the nfl, the owners can give goodell all the power they want, that is not up to the players, thats between the owners.

    And you sound as if you don't know anything about me. For the record I have been a loyal, aqua bleeding Dolphin fan since they first came into the league. I couldn't care less about the Saints or any other team.

    I agree Goddell should have a lot of power. Just not absolute. And he should not be afraid to make rulings per his conscience. If his rulings are fair and just an independent review process would uphold his rulings. And if not a more fair sanction would be imposed. Given enough time I believe the owners will change their mind and desire a realistic appeals process; not some kangaroo court. If not, so be it.
    My beef isn't so much about the rulings; just the process. Regardless, it will not affect my desire to watch the NFL as I have been for the past 50 years. As it is, pray that the Dolphins do not have to face his wrath someday without there being a true appeal process.

    Thanks for sharing your opinion.

    Too harsh for Vilma, 6-8 games would've been enough imo.
