    over saturation of commercial with most of them having something to do with the nfl

    exactly. goodell is ruining the game. he thinks that he can load the game up with endless penalties and an infinite amount of commercials and it won't negatively impact the nfl's popularity. the emphasis on trying to attract women viewers further dilutes the quality of the game. and the push for european markets is wasteful and obnoxious.

    about attracting women to the game - when they make players wear pink gloves and accessories, I wanna find that breast cancer bitch and shit on her grave

    exactly. fucking pink shit goes on an entire month too!

    and it's not like female football fans are going to stick around forever. if you alienate men too much and they start to bail out, their wives and girlfriends won't be far behind them.

    i think my #1 pet peeve with them is the amount of rule changes to protect the players
    its ruining the game

    what i want them to do is test for everything that could possible make them bigger and stronger
    olympic style testing

    get them to normal sized dudes and you wouldnt have to change a single rule

    Until the NFL or its teams start losing money, Goodell will do whatever he wants.

    The pregame show alone had a higher rating on Thursday night than any world series game in recent history. They'd be stupid not to capitalize on that.

    yes they are doing great but people like me and others are bothered by a watered down product
    and possibly will catch up with them..lack of foresight by the nfl..scrooges that keep counting money
