NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell got sacked by Congressman Steve King.

It's been a long time since any sort of truth and common sense have come out of the House of Representatives. Today the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing regarding the matter of head injuries in the National Football League. The Commissioner Roger Goodell was at the hearing. I bet Roger thought to himself at the time that the event was going to be non eventful. He thought wrong. Congressman Steve King of Iowa started asking Goodell questions about the hypocrisy in the NFL regarding "controversial and divisive figures" in the role of owners. Congressman King laid the facts out as clear and precise as any could. The expression on Mr. Goodell's face was beyond priceless. He had a "deer caught in the headlights of a car look". When it was Roger's turn to respond, he was fumbling for the right words to use out of being stunned and embarrassed by Congressman King. All Mr. Goodell could do in response was to repeat the boiler plate response he's been using form day one. Goodell also didn't have an explanation to why Jennifer Lopez and Fergie were allowed to become part owners of the Miami Dolphins. He couldn't dispute anything Congressman King said about the words Rush Limbaugh used. Because Roger Goodell has never been challenged on his comments about Limbaugh prior to today, he never had to think quick on his feet in giving a logical explanation to his remarks against Limbaugh. Roger just showed why the NFL is deserving of the low image it has off the field. This hearing wasn't a teachable moment. It was a "checkmate moment" in exposing the liberal hypocrisy in the National Football League of Liberals.

It serves Roger Goodell right for being a bigoted jerk!

When asked what offensive comment Rush made about McNabb, after clearly stating the actual comment, Goodell was blushed and silent, then repeated the same worn out line about how the NFL wont tolerate it.
King really handed him his left cheek. Though I have to say, I havent heard any music from JLO that would offend me, so not sure where that comes from.
This is what you get when a state run media controls the information. THey lead the sheep on a leash of propaganda.
I think Rush should have articulated the MCNabb comment when he said it, more in detail, because when you first listen to it, his platform of making this a media racial issue was drowned out. I had to re-listen to it.
The idea that players would not play for Limbaugh was made clear by Sharpton, pleaaaaaaase. If im playing, im getting paid. Who in the NFL plays for owners just because they think the team owner is a chipper kinda fellow? The mentality is get that money.
