Funny how

when they feel the heat they suddenly see the light.

Not surprising at all, really. But I think it may be too late for the NFL. We’ll see. If Goodell had done this at the start of the season, it would be seen as something other than cowardly capitulation. But now it would just be a demonstration of his weakness.

In other words, now there is blood in the water and he is substantially weakened. So change doesn’t really mean much. The thing to do now is to fire Goodell and replace him with Condi Rice. Rice has said ┬áthat is her “dream job.” She would crack on this nonsense. And THAT sends the message you want.

Players need to show that they are real manly men, not just panty-waists with big muscles and mind-numbingly big contracts.

      Players can do whatever they want. But so can owners…
