He's throwing all of his weight behind this new rule mandating that running backs can't lower their head while running...chris mortensen is now reporting that it is likely to pass...how the he'll are players suppose tp run? And how long will it take for a rb to get seriously injured because he can't protect himself? These players know the risks they are taking and her compensated handsomely for that risk ...there rule changes are going to kill the league! Thoughts?
Football is about leverage. This means the player who gets lower is the one who gets the leverage. Telling a player he can't get low means by mandate you make him give up leverage to the other players.
This is a retarded rule that will hurt the game. Why not get rid of the pads, and turn it into flag football. Make them wear pink dresses and reward points for ballarina tippy toe dancing.

Goodell needs to consult the "football" people before he goes public with his agendas. Hes too worried about his ego. Don't mess up a good thing by trying to control it too much.
I think it is probably to even out the rule...A defensive player can not lead with the crown of his helmet, but up until now a RB could. I have no problem with it, as it does promote the correct way of hitting, get low but keep your head up. You will see a lot less concussions throughout the sport. How many times have you heard Spielman talk about "See what you hit", if done properly there will be no penalties called on either side, and less players laying on the field.
In response to the title the simple answer is yes. I am not one to call for another man to lose his job, but he should be removed from the position.
It's the ex-players who are suing the leagues fault more than Goodell, he is just trying to protect the league.
Ya he's going to ruin it. I used to really like this guy,now he's just annoying. I can't wait until he's gone
