Goodell is costing the owners money by his actions. This will be his last year. The writing is on the shield. Good Fawking riddens.

how do you get better if you don't practice?

The Seattle Seahawks are being disciplined for violating the collectively bargained rules about physical contact in offseason practices. USA TODAY Sports

For the second time in three years, the Seattle Seahawks are being harshly disciplined for violating the collectively bargained rules about physical contact in offseason practices.

The NFL announced Monday the Seahawks will be fined $400,000 and forfeit their first week of organized team activities (three practices) next year, as well as a fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft because theyre repeat offenders. Coach Pete Carroll also was fined $200,000.

The game sucks and it has become a game of whimps.


This bargained part of the cba drives me fuckin insane. The players cry about Goodell having too much power. They also settled for less percentage of profits than people expected. Contracts are still woefully inadequate in the guaranteed portion.

What did the players get that they wanted? Less fuckin practice. That's right, they agreed to something that makes them not as good at their job. This was a big stupid win for them. The owners were laughing all the way to the bank when that was a major "concession" they had to make.

The commissioner had the discipline hammer prior to the last contract. The NFL isn't giving it up.

Want to bet someone who has been calling for his head for years?

No thanks.

I think he takes the hits so the owners don't have to.

Eventually, they will move on if they begin taking more heat and they will hire someone else to do the same thing for them.

No!!!! You said early this year thatGoodell is a God and makes the owners money. You said that he's the man. You said that he can do no wrong and the NFL loves him because he makes them "so much money!""

Did you not say that? If you deny saying that, fawk off.

No...I didn't say those things.  You should try working in what people have actually said rather than making up garbage to try and argue.

The NFL  opener, a Super Bowl rematch between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers, brought 25.2 million viewers — which is an astonishing number of eyeballs. “For comparison, The Walking Dead averages around 14 million viewers as TV’s most-watched show,” Forbes wrote.

But that’s down 8 percent from 2015 and 6 percent from 2014. Sunday’s numbers, Forbes added, were down 13 percent from last year.

“This also marked the lowest overnight season-opening rating in seven years,” Forbes found

 

 

 

 

Ratings are down. That costs the owners money. But I'm sure you'll tell me that ratings don't mean anything and that somehow in your illogical, win an argument at all cost mentality, that they are actually making money because they have a magic unicorn.

The real reason is because more people are using different forms of media to watch. I use sunday ticket mobile apps or go to Tilted Kilt or  reddit streaming feeds.

2 reasons why the owners love Goodell:

 

1 - He makes them lots of $$$.

 

2 - He's their Dark Night, the bad guy they need to take the heat.

And your thought is that the drop in ratings for that game was due to Goodell.
That is where your logic dies...zero factual basis.

 There's on overall drop in ratings. Not just that one game. If they continue, he's the one at the top.

Could be...or there could be any number of reasons for the drop and people that actually study it will figure that out.  

Is it Goodell?  Is it newer options not captured by traditional ratings?

You seem to think its all just Goodell...no bias in your thinking at all...since you have been :cry: about him since he slapped the Saints around for their BS tactics.

 I never said it was "all" Goodell. But he's the guy at the top. 

 

 Bias? Definetly. But that doesn't change the facts. Ratings are down and  that's not good.

Exactly how does he make them money?  It's the owners and television committee that negotiates the contracts with the networks, what's he do?

I agree. Deflategate was complete BS. I hope the Pats go 4-0 just to give Goodell a big FU.

many possible reasons
But the NFL front office hasn't established themselves as a likeable, trustworthy bunch.
Boxing interest collapsed because the clowns running things were corrupt and inconsiderate of the athletes and fans. It was a cash-grab effort for boxing back then and in many ways it seems to be similar in the NFL.
The SuperBowl Champion could become as irrelevant as today's Heavyweight Champion if these billionaire NFL owners and Goodell don't do a better job with public relations.

Lemme guess. Some third string QB played well further driving home the point that Tom Brady is severely overrated as he hit the drafted team - at right time, lottery.

Thanks for the review.

 

I've gotta' believe that the market is huge for these things.... everyone wants to do this but it's still a bit muddy on how well it will work and what antennae to buy, etc.

For 12 bucks, I'm gonna test it out.

Fock cable!

 

 

Just remember to try it in several locations and let your TV scan for channels.

 

Took me a couple weeks to perfect it

 

I had no luck trying to extend the 10 feet either (add coaxial cable), didn't seem to work well.
