I think Roger Goodell should be a vigilante Supreme Court Justice who goes after people the legal system can't convict.

 

He absolutely can appeal the verdict by the judge and then has the right to impose whatever punishment he deems appropriate for Watson. Will he?  I doubt it.

Amazingly this doesn't even involve the tanking allegations in Flores's lawsuit - that could be the other shoe... it's a two-horse race between Snyder and Ross as to who gets booted out of the league first.

 

It does in part...

I think he should go after everyone. Sign OJ to a corporate job and then ban him for life from the NFL. Call him, Vigilante Roger!

This 100%. Helps bring all the heat off them for that one. 

 

I'm still waiting to see if the NFL appeals the Watson ruling and allows Goodell to hand down his own suspension.  They are not obligated to accept that ruling.

I don’t believe for one minute they will do that.

Awesome that they lose a 1st next year. This is fantastic. Now, if Tua stinks up the joint, positioning to get one of the top guys just got a little bit harder.

Dang... all that compensation for Tyreek Hill and then they lose a Day 1 and Day 2 Pick over this as well.  

 

Fins better hope the signings they made this year all hit.

Holy crap, is this true?  If so, Bravo for the NFL. But shouldn't Ross really be forced to sell the franchise?

 

Note: they found the claims about losing intentionally were unfounded. In that investigation, they found tampering with Payton/Brady which is not a 'sell the franchise' offense.

Meaning they generally don’t punish their own…. Or at least have not done so historically.

I suppose this is a unique instance in that that is indisuptabale that Ross was heavily involved.

 

For other cases, Spygate etc, the owners could claim to not know. I don't think Ross can.
