A Gentle Reminder…
Commissioner Roger Goodell has not been accused of or videotaped committing or convicted of a violent act against a woman or a child.
Granted, today’s press conference didn’t settle or reveal or fix anything, other than him giving a much more public apology for the disastrous mishandling of the response to Ray Rice attack.
But let’s not equate our disappointment with today’s event with the outrage we should feel toward the physical acts which caused this current climate.
I’m not fond of the commissioner, especially when compared to strong and insightful leaders like David Stern, Peter Rozell or Paul Tagliabue. But let’s remember he’s not the guy seen committing or accused of or convicted of violence toward a member of their family…. Particularly if you’re inclined to all for the Commissioner’s head (figuratively).
