Q&A: Goodell pleased, confident about NFL's direction

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/2008-01-27-goodell_N.htm

By Bob McManaman, The Arizona Republic
He is the man behind the shield, the caretaker of the most successful professional sports league in the nation, and when Super Bowl XLII kicks off next Sunday in Glendale, Ariz., NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will be enjoying it just like the rest of the country.
Now in his third calendar year as commissioner, Goodell recently spoke with The Republic from league headquarters in New York and discussed a variety of topics, including the league's collective-bargaining agreement and the accomplishments and frailties of some of today's top NFL stars.
His is a pressure-filled job with consuming responsibilities, but he takes on the challenge just the way his father, Charles Goodell, a former U.S. representative and senator from New York, did during his political career.
The elder Goodell, who was appointed as a Republican to the U.S. Senate to fill the un-expired term of the assassinated Robert F. Kennedy, was a resilient force. He made headlines by calling on the House of Representatives to impeach President Nixon for illegally expanding the Vietnam War and entering the sovereign territory of a neutral nation.
Roger Goodell has thrived on his own such convictions, whether it has been dealing harshly with players for improper conduct, doling out an unprecedented penalty to the New England Patriots for illegal videotaping of an opponent's sideline, or ushering in a new generation of the NFL brand on international marketplaces.
Q: A week away from the Super Bowl, what are your thoughts on the 2007 season and how does this matchup between the Patriots and Giants look to you?
A: "When I think of the 2007 season, and I think a lot of people are saying this, it may have been one of the greatest seasons in NFL history. The competitiveness of the play, the quality of the play, the excitement that was generated by the players and coaches and clubs. I think this has been really an extraordinary year for our fans, which is what we're doing and what we're in business for.
"I just got a note today that we were 13 of the top 15 television shows of the entire 2007-2008 television season, which is extraordinary. I think everything indicates it's been an incredible season and it's captured the fans' imagination.
"As far as the matchup goes, I think it's great. What a terrific matchup when you have a team that's already achieved unprecedented success with 18 wins and no losses, trying to complete an undefeated season against a team that started 0-2 and has really come together and played so well on the road."
Q: Can Arizona, hosting its second Super Bowl, expect more in the future and possibly even be placed into a Super Bowl rotation?
A: "Well, we don't have an official Super Bowl rotation, but I think everyone believes that their experience back in '96 in Arizona was a terrific experience. The only negative at that point in time was really the stadium issue and that has since been addressed. It's a first-class stadium and one that we're excited about having the Super Bowl in and so I think as we look forward, there's a great opportunity for Arizona to have future Super Bowls."
Q: What impact do you think football has had on the nation over the years?
A: "It's very unique. I've often said I don't think there's anything that brings a community together like football. And I think that's particularly evident on Super Bowl Sunday, when it really becomes an unofficial holiday and everyone gathers around their television sets and is intrigued and participates in something that really brings everyone together and entertains everyone. I think that's a wonderful thing and we're proud of that and the emotional aspect of getting the fans so engaged in our game is what we're all trying to accomplish."
Q: Several U.S. presidents have said that after their first year or two in office, they realized their job was a lot different than they expected. You've been inside the NFL operations for a quarter-century now. Have you found your job is a lot different from what you expected?
A: "I don't think so. I've spent close to 25 years before becoming commissioner in this office and I think I understood the job, I understood the responsibility. I would probably say the one aspect that you can't ever fully appreciate until you get the job is the awesome responsibility that comes with it in the sense that you know how important the National Football League is to all of our fans and you recognize you have a great deal of responsibility to them, and to the clubs and the players and everyone associated with the league."
Q: Can you talk about the challenges that lie ahead for you and the league, and specifically, the collective bargaining agreement and the likelihood there will be a decision to reopen it on Nov. 8? Is that going to command most of your attention in the coming months?
A: "Yes it does. Our single priority here is really to keep the fans focused on the game and the great accomplishments on the field and to handle all those business issues that certainly arise when you're running a league like the National Football League and try to deal with those quietly and effectively, and don't take away from those great performances. ... Labor has been very much a quiet focus for us. We've had a tremendous number of meetings, both internally with our people, with our committees and our membership, and also with the union to make sure we deal with that effectively, because it's important to the players, it's important to the league and it's important to all of our fans. We know how important that is and we trust that we will deal with that effectively."
Q: How realistic is it that a Super Bowl may be played outside of the United States at some point?
A: "I don't know. That's a decision that ultimately the ownership has to make. I know there's interest on behalf of other cities in hosting the Super Bowl, internationally, and I think that's something the membership will at least be presented with by those cities. But that's a decision that ultimately will be made by the ownership on the basis of 32 votes, as you know."
Q: Do we, as a nation, need to do a better job of keeping professional athletes and their performances in the proper perspective?
A: "Well, our society probably has a tendency to overreact to a lot of things, but I think they find the achievements of individual athletes and teams inspiring and I think one of the things that makes the NFL unique is the team performances, the ability of a group of young men to come together and achieve a collective goal is really very inspiring to fans. That's something our fans do take away from the NFL that I think makes it special.
"As far as individual players, I think they have to recognize these individuals are great athletes, superior performers, and they also are young individuals and some of them make mistakes. That is going to happen, but we all make mistakes in life, and I think our group of players, we're extremely proud of them because they're doing some great things on and off the field."
Q: You talk about inspiring. How much did your father inspire you throughout your life, including the present day?
A: "I am a very fortunate person because a lot of people have inspired me and have had great influences on me. And that starts with my parents, both my mother and father, plus four brothers and just a lot of close relatives and friends and mentors, including (former NFL commissioners) Pete Rozelle and Paul Tagliabue.
"None of us get to where we are alone and that's clearly the case with Roger Goodell. My father was obviously a very inspiring figure to me for what he did in his career and the fact he pursued what he felt was right. .. regardless of the personal consequences to him. I always remember that. He followed his passion, he loved his passion, he did what he felt was right, even though he knew it might be the end of his career in politics."
Q: What is some of the best advice you have received since you've been on the job?
A: "Well, I don't know if it was really on the job. I've always believed you have to tackle your issues head on and you have to try and stay ahead of the issues, that you don't let the issues dictate how you operate. You have to anticipate the challenges ahead and the opportunities ahead and try to take advantage of those.
"That, and be innovative and listen.. .. I think one of the biggest lessons I've always learned from being in the National Football League is that there are a lot of perspectives. We have a lot of people who care very deeply about the NFL, not just owners and management and players, but fans and business partners that all bring an interesting perspective and, if you listen clearly, they can help you find a better solution to the challenges ahead."

NO - he felt fine.

It was quite unexpected. To think he got caught up in the cross fire that caused the demise of Roger Goodell and Dashoe. Both were needed executions

But, the innocent always suffer in a violent purge. I'm thinking of using his avatar as a tribute.

When I was fishing for Giant Bluefin Tuna (pictured below) us boat Captains would all hang out and pretty much drink when it was windy.
A place in Harwich called the Old Kemah Inn was a place we frequented often. They had a great Shrimp appetizer called Texas BBQ Shrimp and I ordered it more often than not when we went there. One night Captain Bobby starts calling them the secret BBQ then secret babalu shrimp as we were poking fun at another captain who was being secretive regarding where he was fishing.
It was also the phrase used to describe my drink of choice at the time which was Captain Morgan and Coke. One of the Captains had a nice bar on the boat (dont picture lobster boats here, picture those fishing machines you see at the docks during tournaments) and they also had a dumbwaiter. In that dumbwaiter he replaced a Gin with the Captain because , allegedly I drank so much of it
:o
To this day everyone who I became close with during that time in my life calls me babalu.
It has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with Ricky Freakin Ricardo :banghead:

When I was fishing for Giant Bluefin Tuna (pictured below) us boat Captains would all hang out and pretty much drink when it was windy.
A place in Harwich called the Old Kemah Inn was a place we frequented often. They had a great Shrimp appetizer called Texas BBQ Shrimp and I ordered it more often than not when we went there. One night Captain Bobby starts calling them the secret BBQ then secret babalu shrimp as we were poking fun at another captain who was being secretive regarding where he was fishing.
It was also the phrase used to describe my drink of choice at the time which was Captain Morgan and Coke. One of the Captains had a nice bar on the boat (dont picture lobster boats here, picture those fishing machines you see at the docks during tournaments) and they also had a dumbwaiter. In that dumbwaiter he replaced a Gin with the Captain because , allegedly I drank so much of it
:o
To this day everyone who I became close with during that time in my life calls me babalu.
It has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with Ricky Freakin Ricardo :banghead:

NO - he felt fine.

It was quite unexpected. To think he got caught up in the cross fire that caused the demise of Roger Goodell and Dashoe. Both were needed executions

But, the innocent always suffer in a violent purge. I'm thinking of using his avatar as a tribute.

Gang warfare is very tragic, sorry about the drive by MEPATSNUT and once again sorry #54 at least the mods here knew who I was from my IP which I would never hide.:thumb:

I found the suggestion that you were secretly "Roger Goddell" ridiculous - and that if it wasn't you, it had to be PatsFanLisa even MORE ridiculous . . . ROFL

I have a hard time keeping my stuff in line, I don't have time to figure out who is who here.

I mean, I could have an "alter-ego" here, too and can use that to be a dick, but then again I can use my regular name and do the same, but I choose not to.

For others, eh....... what ever floats your boat.

Bishbash’s questions killed me and I truly was sorry that some scum bag tried to fake out that they were you. That’s why Roger gave you flowers he did not mean, I mean I did not mean for that to happen when it did. And was happy that Pookie took care of that for you and banned the person in question.

At times I felt the pot needed to be stirred so one day out of the blue I decided to make up Roger and had his assistance come and post under Bob and Cindy the youngest of the Brady Bunch I was going to work my way up to Alice but Mickiemo figured out the Brady Bunch connection so I decided to just lock Cindy in the bathroom because of her being so fragile and having MEPATSNUT ask what she was wearing was a hoot.

People I did this out of the love for this site, not to make #54 run away but to bring a little Tabasco to the table.

And no OBF that imposter of you was not me, and I can swear that on the love of the Patriots I have…

And BTW, where the hell is RG? Was he Dashoe's other personality? Did the lucky bastage get tickets to the SB and is is down in AZ raping and pillaging as we speak?

Roadgrader, I haven't read all this thread and I'm not 100% sure I understand what on earth you are talking about, but really, I think it's time you stepped away from the keyboard for a while. Just don't post anything. Better yet, don't read anything that might tempt you to post anything. Give it a rest for a few days. Come back on Wednesday after the injury report comes out. THIS IS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.

I know that some here do not share these sentiments of yours, but ever since you turned me onto that Geisha book, I have never doubted you thomas

I think you are right and I thank you

You've been missed RG. I hope to hear from you after the injury report today. :)

Hi, I signed up a few months back

I’m very excited about the superbowl and hope we win. I noticed that some of you have pictures under your name how do you do that?

Can I put a picture of myself up?

Or is that not aloud?

Well a little about my self, my name is Beulah and I love this team. I am from Spanish heritage, I love to dance and play poker with my friends. My father got me into watching football when I was 9 and watch when I can. I forget how I found this site and don’t post much at other sites that I belong too so don’t expect me to post to often here. Well I will be chatting with you all, take care

Sincerely,
Beulah

She sounded hot. But any female sounds hot to me. :thumb:
