Roger Goodell Is The New Uncle Bud (Selig)

PART IV-Conclusion

Gary Norris Gray- BASN Staff Reporter

OAKLAND,CA (BASN) The Sheriff Roger Goodell rode into town on his big black stallion, waving his powerful sword carrying the red, white, and blue National Football League shield.  IT IS NOT WORKING!!!!

Hope you remember the old spaghetti (Italian) western movies of the late 1970’s with Clint Eastwood. “THE GOOD, THE BAD, and THE UGLY”.  The following articles will proceed in reverse THE UGLY, THE BAD, and last THE GOOD.

Mr. Roger Goodell may have taken classes from the former Commissioner of Baseball, Bud Selig, doing as little as possible to placate the owners. Many have questioned the commissioner’s decisions the past nine years and the League might have to pay for those administrative decisions.


Commissioner Goodell might want to change the face of the National Football League. Realignment has not been done since 2002. Teams are currently in divisions that are geographical incorrect. The NFL state that they want to cut down on travel, gas, and time. The West coastal teams are at a disadvantage.

Last year the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers were the most traveled teams. Conversations continue to return the Seahawks to the American Football Conference WEST. This will be the third time that Seattle moves to another conference.

First, The realignment of the six current divisions by putting teams the current teams in their proper geographical regions, which could transform each division competitively.  The New England Patriots have won the AFC EAST Division 12 of 14 years. WHY? Because no team in that division can challenge the red, white and blue Pats. The infusion of the Baltimore Ravens into the AFC East Division would create that competition.

The League should explain why the Indianapolis Colts are in the AFC SOUTH Division. The Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tennessee Titians are current members. The Colts are nowhere near their competitors. While the Miami Dolphins are in the AFC East Division with the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots almost one thousand miles away.

Next question, why are the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC NORTH Division with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals, and Cleveland Browns? These teams are a train ride away from each other. The Ravens are the odd man out.

Anybody with common sense would put the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC North Division, the Miami Dolphins in the AFC South and the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC East. But what do I know after fifty years of watching football?

In the National Football Conference The Dallas Cowboys do not belong in the NFC EAST, and  The St. Louis Rams do not belong in the NFC WEST. The Cowboys should move to the NFC South and the Rams should move to NFC East. The NFL still envisions a team in Los Angeles this would fill that vacant spot in the NFC West with an expansion team.

These moves would save MONEY, TIME, and GAS. This would also create competitive divisions and fresh new rivalries.

It will not happen anytime soon because of the veto power of two powerful team owners. The power brokers to realignment are The Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins. These owners do not want to give up their historical divisional rivals.



Second, The NFL needs to address the name of the Washington Football Club, as an African American-Native American. I feel the pain that Native Americans who watch this team on the field. Washington owner Dan Snyder will not budge with his position. The only way this name will change is a national fan boycott of Washington Football gear and massive lawsuit against the National Football League. Mr. Goodell has waffled on this position over the last three years.

Maybe if Congress removes NFL’s tax exempt statutes, which might change some owners, mind.

 If Commissioner Goodell truly wants racial harmony, the league changing the name would be the correct move. This would end one of the most racist names in the United States.

THE BRAND    mascots

Third, The Commissioner has promoted the brand and has garnered large television contracts with four different networks. Mr. Goodell and the owners created an NFL network in 2012.

This man has promoted Thursday night games at the detriment of the player’s health. Thursday Night games need to end but the advertisers and promoters are not going to hear that.

Last question where is DeMaurice Smith? The Players Union seems to be in limbo. Smith has not spoken since the Union agreement with the National Football League.

Mr. Goodell has shown THE GOOD, THE BAD, and THE UGLY in administering the National Football League the past ten years.

In Conclusion the National Football League could be on the path of disintegration and turmoil if Mr. Goodell will not control certain owners and limit gambling.

Football fans are not happy with the recent events of the playoff shenanigans.

There is a dark cloud over this sport, a sport as a child I loved.     

Post Script:- When will the National Football League invite minority  ownership

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both
    equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that too few men and women are
    speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy
    I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.
