Roger Goodell Turns Into a Marshmallow

After weeks of Roger Goodell scaring NFL players straight he became a marshmallow on September 13th, letting Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots skate by with CHEATING. The same man that has suspended players from the league before they have even been found guilty. The same league that can give a player a 4 game suspension for missing their drug test, missing it not just for failing one. The Patriots were flat out busted for cheating this week against the New York Jets. There is also more speculation that they have cheated in the past as well, and every team was just warned about illegal taping and photographing prior to the season. So what happens next is the Patriots are caught with a cameraman on the Jets sidelines taking pictures of their signals. Sure Patriots fans will point to the fact they won the game by 24 points. Maybe we should point to the fact they won 3 Superbowls all by 3 points. Did they have an illegal edge in those games? That is a point to ponder but not the point of today.
The NFL and Roger Goodell fined Patriots coach Bill Belichick $500,000 and Patriots $250,000 for spying on an opponent. Roger Goodell also ordered the team to give up next year's first-round draft choice if it reaches the playoffs and second and third round draft picks if it doesn't. Is your favorite comedian Richard Pryor, George Carlin, or Chris Rock? Well now it is clear the best comedian is Roger Goodell. First how does the Patriots record have anything to do with their penalty for cheating? The Patriots penalty becomes less if they do not make the playoffs. What does that have to do with anything they already cheated! In addition the penalty is NOTHING. This is the 2007 season. Robert Krafts net worth was reported by Forbes as 1.1 BILLION dollars in 2006. So the 500,000 fine to Bill and the 250,000 to Patriots will have NO effect. In addition the Patriots will still have the current 53 man roster and coaching staff that they always have.
Bottom Line there was NO penalty at all given to the Patriots by the new marshmallow man!
