Roger Goodell

This article suggests that Roger Goodell's days may be numbered as NFL Commissioner. What the article completely whiffs on is one powerful reason - Goodell has alienated his strongest supporter in Robert Kraft. At this point Kraft wouldn't cross the street to spit on Goodell if he was on fire. Does anyone remember the Commissioner being on-stage after the Patriots won the Super Bowl? No? That's because Robert Kraft treated Goodell like he was the invisible man. Goodell basically burned down his own house with his bumbling Deflategate investigation.

So who should the NFL get to replace Goodell? I've said it before - Condoleezza Rice. She would solve the NFL's domestic violence PR problem with the simple fact that she's a woman. She'd be the first woman commissioner of any of the major sports. Race issues? Hello - she's a black woman! Qualified? She was Secretary of State! Plus she's said NFL Commissioner would be her dream job.

So let it be written - so let it be done.
