    Cris Carter Says Goodell "Ain't Got No Rules, Man"

    [size=13pt]Cris Carter Says Goodell "Ain't Got No Rules, Man"[/size]

    Posted by Mike Florio on July 2, 2009 9:12 AM
    At a time when more folks are realizing the stark differences between the NFL under Paul Tagliabue and the NFL under Roger Goodell, a guy who retired several years before the transition has openly wondered whether he could make it in today's game.

    Former Vikings receiver Cris Carter, now an ESPN analyst, told the new class of rookies as part of his passionate, riveting remarks to them that he doubts he could survive under Goodell.

    "I don't think Michael Irvin and I could have played in the league we have now," Carter said.
    "'Cause Roger Goodell, man.
    Rog ain't got no rules, man. . . . Rog -- ain't no rules, man.
    If you screw up, like it ain't etched in stone like you might get two, three games, four games.
    Rog gonna sit you down, though.
    And we're seeing guys get suspended for the first time in stuff that like we never seen before.

    Carter was stating that Goodell actually has rules. One of the few people who use double negative properly...

    So what makes you think so highly of Goodell?

    Carter was speaking from the heart, off the cuff.
    Take it for what it is worth.
    Any summary of this without asking Carter what he meant or to clarify what he said is just putting words into Carter's mouth that may not have been intended.
    It was a scared straight speak intended to get the attention of the rookies, not to blast Goodell.


    I took his comments to mean that you will be judged on your offense, not on who you are or on precedents, mostly you will be judged alone on your accidents.
    You set the precedent for yourself, so don't get in trouble.

    In a round about way, he did say you can trust the commish.......... to make the same decision of leniency that he made on someone else.

    The part about him and Mike not making it in today's NFL....... another scared straight tactic, "what if there wasn't a Cris Carter career."

    Florio should do some reporting and actually call up CC and get clarification.
    Too many editorials!

    ...and this guy doesn't make first ballot. Carter is now doing what he did with his body, with his mouth, and hopefully with the same results.
    A superior player, a mentor and leader, and now a "groomer of behavior". Can this guy do anymore for his sport? Put him in the hall already.

    I think Goodell is just what our sport needed. A "no nonsense" commish. 0 tolerance.......it's the only way.
