Roger Goodell Has Got to Go

After recent news, I am convinced we do not have a football-wise person as commissioner of the National Football League (NFL). We have a flaming Leftist in charge.

Apparently, Roger Goodell, the current NFL commissioner, thinks the extra point kicked after touchdowns is irrelevant because only five of the last twelve-hundred extra point attempts have been missed. He wants to award seven points to a team for the touchdown itself and forego the extra point attempt.

Like your typical Leftist, he impulsively wants to change the rules without taking the time to understand the culture. He wants to exact social justice anytime he thinks something is unfair, even if it means bending the rules or turning a blind eye to rulebreaking when rulebreaking is committed by players and teams he feels sorry for.

He has also openly expressed his faith in socialism, making the nebulous claim that the NFL is inherently socialist.

The extra point exists after the touchdown to create room for chance and room for error. It has historically made the difference between a decisive victory and undesired overtime. It is a chance for a team to win the game, tie the game or lose the game altogether. If Roger Goodell knew anything about football, he would understand this simple fact.

Is anyone else sick and tired of this man ridiculing the biggest names among players and fining them for every slightest infraction because they are "too good"? I know that I am. If the changes are made to this rule, I may boycott the NFL -- including my own team, the San Francisco 49ers, if I have to.
