THE PESSIMIST: NFL Can’t Have It Both Ways

March 28th, 2011

THE PESSIMIST is a diehard Bucs fan whose negative writings appear occasionally on JoeBucsFan.com. His views surely do not necessarily reflect those of Joe. However, Joe sure gets a kick out of them.

So Roger Goodell said he wants to punish players for misbehaving during a lockout, when the NFL wants nothing to do with its players, won’t pay their benefits, won’t let them communicate with their team and has suspended their contracts.

What a two-faced phony.

So rather than play Charles Bronson last week, if Aqib Talib had broken his foot running sprints on a high school field and never played football again, the NFL wouldn’t have to pay him a dime left on his contract because of the lockout. But Goodell wants to be able to punish Talib for his lockout shenanigans?

THE PESSIMIST wants to barf. You can’t have it both ways, Goodell. 

For all THE PESSIMIST knows, Talib made the conscious decision to go wild last week because the lockout was in place. Maybe Talib is smarter than we think. Maybe he had the presence of mind to know his paycheck was somewhat safe as he defended his sister, albeit aggressively.

THE PESSIMIST knows Talib would have one hell of a lawsuit if Goodell suspends him for crimes committed during a lockout.

And if Goodell plans to go through with that BS, the Bucs should get a clear statement NOW from Goodell so the team can prepare properly for the NFL Draft.

Per the Tampa Tribune, Goodell said last week “we owe to our fans” enforcement of the personal conduct policy through the lockout.

THE PESSIMIST can’t stop laughing. You care about fans, Goodell? How about getting good, full-time referees and giving teams the freedom to lift a blackout before you worry about punishing guys that aren’t even on the payroll.

    In Montreal for work and just got caught up on the Talib mess.

    WOW…….. WOW!

    I thought, or at least hoped, he had learned.

    This might change the draft for the Buccaneers. Targeting another CB might be a need in the early to mid rounds.

    MAN I am dissappointed.

    A lot of maybe’s in that column, and some pretty sad ones too. Maybe he is smarter than we think and thought his paycheck was somewhat safe? I’m sorry, but if he’s thinking he can still collect a paycheck from the NFL from a jail cell (if he’s convicted of a crime which is a serious possibility in an incident involving gunfire), then he’s not very smart at all. That would mean that he fully intended to fire the weapon in advance, that he had thought it through and come to the conclusion that his check was safe, so firing a gun wasn’t a problem??? That would be premeditated attempted murder. And you think “MAYBE” he’s smarter than we think? I think MAYBE you’re just too stupid to think it through yourself, Mr. Pessimist. It doesn’t matter what Warden Goodell does if he’s in prison. And yes, the NFL can have it both ways. They can hold people accountable during a lockout, especially in incidences like this that have an extremely negative impact on the NFL and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization.
