Could Webby Be The Reason Goodell Hates Steelers?
Looks like the NFL paid disability benefits to Webby back in '99 due to the effects of hits to the head. They paid him because football lead to his brain injury.
Roger looks to be screwed because of a Steeler. What poetic justice. I never realized Webby donated his brain for research.
This whole thing could be the end of the NFL. The game will never be the same. In 100 years, future generations will think of us like we thought of the Romans and their gladiators. We're a bunch of sickos. Too bad it takes society 100s of years to figure out its wrongs.

The Romans forced slaves to do battle in their arena for their entertainment. Our gladiators are willing combatants, with hundreds of thousands that would love to take their place. And they are compensated like kings.
People willingly join the military, go work in mines, work in conditions they know will effect them in their later years simply to help their families get by week by week. Football players know the hazards but choose to participate and can earn enough that generations in their families can have a better life.

I think it's more likely that Badell hates the Steelers because he's trying to create a legacy for himself, remaking the league into his own pussified image...the way the Steelers have played football stands in the way of that.

I listen to 93.7 the fan daily and just last week Ron Cook was talking about the "conspiracy" theories behind Goodell and his hate for the Steelers. He seemed to think it was absolutely ridiculous considering the Rooney's played a substantial role in his selection. He also mentioned the Steelers as a pinnacle franchise for the NFL which is true and indicated that Goodell would have no reason to "hate the steelers" However it was mentioned that Harrison, Clark etc likely have targets on their back because of their physical play. Who the hell knows. Either way things need to change with him 100%.

I get it that the Rooney's were a positive for Goodell to get where he is at. Does that mean Goodell is 100% thankful ? How about the average Joe employer that hires a guy and the person steals from him or even kills him ? To think Goodell wouldn't be a prick to the Rooneys/Steelers because of this or that....it doesn't make it fool proof that Goodell wouldn't stick a knife in their backs. And yet, he often has and continues to d so...... Wake up and smell the freakin steroids people ! There is no way Goodell runs things farily. Goodell wouldn't be sitting with the Cheats owner at games after all the cheating, scandals.... if things were on the up and up. The Cheats wouldn't have gotten off so easily. The Steelers wouldn't get all these fines, bad games called etc. For some reason and I doubt it has to do with Webby but, Goodell has always had a hardon for the Steelers. The guy even looks like a slime to me. Put it this way....If you had never seen Goodell before, knew anything about him and he was a car salesman, would you buy a car from that guy ?
I wouldn't take a car from him if he gave it to me.

He has a problem with the way TWO STEELERS play. He actually had a problem with Hines too but Hines just STOPPED destoying guys and Goodell had no problem with him.
Goodell wants a "kinder gentler" league and it affects big hitters period.
I just hate when Steelerfans act like crybabies. Please leave that to Raider and Seahawk fans.
