So much for player safety and the integrity of the game BS Roger has been selling. Williams get the same punishment as Payton, I mean even without a bounty system he still coached to injure and had recordings of him doing it. How can u explain allowing him to be apart of the NFL in any way. This coupled with the approval rating I don't see how Roger can keep his position much longer

Well, the approval rating doesn't mean anything (assume you mean players'). I'm actually surprised that it was as high as it was. He works for and is paid by the owners, whether they like him or not is really his only job security question.

Almost certainly as part of a deal to give testimony against the players.

Hopefully an offensive player has a chance as he's running out of bounds to go helmet to headset on him.

What a joke. How the heck do you let him back in the league?

Goodell doesn't give a rat's [inappropriate/removed] about player safety. He'll talk about it though so things go well with the media, and the NFL still gets its money, but if he was really concerned, he should have stuck to his guns and never let him come back.

I feel bad for offensive players, because you know Williams will do whatever it takes to get the best players off the field.

"Gregg Williams former Saints DC? No, I just share his name, I don't know anything about a guy involved in a scandal."





Changing your appearance after a scandal definitely seems like something some PR guy would come up with. Laughing

Yep. A casual fan might see him on the Titans sidelines and not even connect the dots.
