    If he doesn't suspend Rogers for at least four if I'm Ben I call a lawyer and sue for his lost wages based on discrimination.

    Rogers has a substance abuse policy suspension, was accused of sexual assault, and now this. He should get at least 4 games, if not six.

    "It's a great example," Goodell said, "of a young man making a mistake on one hand and then doing something positive on the other."
    Ben was accused of raping McNulty.

    Later in 2009:

    We'll see if Rog uses Rogers good deed to let him off the hook.

    More players sound off on Roger Goodell's visits

    Posted by Michael David Smith on August 6, 2010


    Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said this week that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's visit with the team was a "total waste of time." It turns out that Redskins camp wasn't the only place where Goodell met a hostile audience.

    Players on the Ravens, Chiefs and Browns told FanHouse they weren't satisfied with what they heard when Goodell visited their training camps.

    Chiefs guard Brian Waters was all smiles when Goodell handed him the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award six months ago, but Waters told FanHouse he didn't appreciate the way Goodell tried to pass himself off as a "liaison" between the players and owners.

    "I mean, that's almost like a slap in the face to our intelligence," Waters said. "We know the owners are paying him. Don't take us for granted as far as our understanding of what's going on here."

    Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth said that when Goodell called himself a liaison, "You could definitely hear guys chuckling."

    And Browns linebacker Scott Fujita said Goodell didn't have answers for the questions he and his teammates asked.

    "I was hopeful we'd get some more answers," Fujita said. "I think he came in unprepared for how educated the players were going to be. A lot of guys were concerned about it afterward, and I think kind of shocked for how unprepared he was for these kinds of questions."

    Goodell has already met with eight teams and has more visits scheduled on his training camp tour, with the Colts up next on Saturday.

    I think most of the players' concerns with Goodell are about the potential lockout, though, not about any inconsitencies regarding discpline of players, coaches, and front office executives. Brian Waters is the Chiefs' union player rep, Dominique Foxworth is the Ravens' union player rep, and Scott Fujita was the player union rep for the Saints (not sure if he has the same position now that he is in Cleveland).
