In case you missed it over the weekend Roger Goodell was being interviewed about the state of the league and hinted that he is open to expanding the playoffs to 16 teams*. 16! Like at this point you have to openly wonder if Goodell is trying to set a record for highest number of idiotic ideas ever presented during an NFL season. Reminds me of the above scene in Super Troopers where they work 'meow' into a pullover 10 times. I picture Paul Tagliabue sitting outside of Goodell's office shaking his hand at 9 while Goodell blurts out 'annnnd we'll make the forward pass illegal!'
In all seriousness this guy's time has to be up right? Bounty gate was an out and out disaster. The league is slowly turning into two-hand touch with all the new rules concerned with 'player safety' while at the same time trying to expand the regular season to 18 games and expand the playoffs by a round. Then two weeks ago he's talking about getting rid of kickoffs altogether and giving teams a 4th and 15 or punt option after a score? What? Hey Roger: if it ain't broke dont' fix it. Your league makes billions upon billions every season. Just treat it like a T-Rex in Jurasic Park and don't make any sudden movements. No need to re-invent the wheel. The only person doing a worse job right now is Mason Crosby. It's like these two are in an arms race to find out who can screw up their job more and still be employed.
*I'd not only watch these games, I'd bet on them and probably buy tickets at a 300% markup if it were the Packers. -1 internet tough guy.
PS: Super Troopers is my all time favorite bar close movie. Pretty sure I've seen this movie 2334233 times total and seen it sober twice. It's a hilarious movie either way but something about the right combination of binge drinking and greasy food makes it 1,000% funnier. If the Academy got a dirty 30 of PBR and an order of Topperstix this movie would have won every best picture Oscar since 2001.
Double PS: Maybe Goodell has a job waiting for him with the Mets?
