After his latest gaffe in Tom Brady and Deflate-Gate, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will now be the topic of discussion for all 32 owners.

By Robby Sabo

Players have been saying it for a very long time now: NFL commissioner Roger Goodell holds and exacts too much power by way of disciplining.

Former New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathon Vilma makes no bones about the fact he wouldn’t shed a tear for old Roger.

Of course Vilma was in the middle of Bounty-Gate with the Saints and enjoyed when his suspension handed down by Goodell was overturned.

Add all of the history to the mess that is the final decision regarding Tom Brady’s nullification of his four-game suspension and we now have utter madness on our hands. So much so that all 32 NFL owners will be meeting to discuss the commissioner’s level of participation in disciplinary matters moving forward.

Mark Maske of The Washington Post has reported that several people close to the situation are claiming this meeting will occur to decide the commish’s fate.

“There will certainly be discussion about that,” one owner said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic. The owner said he is “not sure where it will lead.”

For now Goodell will continue to do work involving matters of discipline. This includes all of the players who’ll now surely take their judgement to court looking for a brighter outlook, just like Brady.
