It feels like one thing when commentators like Keith Olbermann and Jason Whitlock are calling for Goodell’s resignation. It’s another thing when one of the athlete/commentators on ESPN goes there.
After today’s press conference performance by Goodell, where in my opinion, while he was going to be likely criticized, he is properly being criticized for not beings direct with answers as he could have been, to regain some credibility.

Of course, Bruschi was a part of the Patriots during the time period for which they were punished for Spygate, but it does feel like the momentum might build after what did or did not happen in a press conference today.
