Goodell is trying to reduce liability for lawsuits. Having a bounty program flies in the face of Goodell's player safety rant. He can't reduce the league's liability if someone is deliberately working against the league and paying players to hurt other players. Do I think he care's about player safety, or the good of the shield? Nope. He's trying to save the league billions
in class action.
I disagree on the videotape penalty. Goodell would have gone easier than half a mill and a first rounder on anyone but Belichick. If it was Kubiack, it would have been $50-100k and no pick.
