    Re: Is Roger Goodell an 'Unthinking Moralist?'

    Here's the link for Mr. Standon's blog post. Pretty interesting stuff. I agree that Goodell probably is a moralist, by Standon's definition. But I don't necessarily agree that this is such a bad thing for the NFL. The league is wildly successful right now, and I'm not so sure that having a bureaucrat like Goodell in there is such a bad thing. Clean up the little areas that need to be cleaned up now, save the visionary stuff for when a visionary is needed.

    On a side note, I applied to Willamette University's Law School for this fall, so perhaps I'll meet Professor Standon. Seems like he'd be a pretty fascinating guy to talk sports with.

    One thing the author kindof discounts or really doesn't address is the fact that the Owners are Goodell's boss and not a bunch of fans and sports hacks.

    I am sure he was given a mandate by the owners to take a hard stance on certain instances and is working within his charter to do just that.

    Long story short, look to see more and more players suspended (regardless of talent/team stature) with the owners support.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

    Unthinking? Meaning, he had a thought and is now undoing it? Interesting use of the English language.
