Time To Run Roger Goodell Out Of Office

If allegations by Michael Vick are true that Goodell steered him away from signing with the Bills or Bengals, the commissioner's time is up.

First, take it with a grain of salt.  Michael Vick, he of Ron Mexico fame, he of the Bad Newz Kennalz massacres, he of the marijuana gatorade bottle at the airport, he the convicted felon doesn't get the benefit of the doubt when he talks.  He has displayed low-life criminal behavior since his introduction to the NFL and despite the league's mandated love-fest for his supposed reformation, convicts get scrutiny- that's just the way it is.  But Roger Goodell, he of the no suspension for Belichick in the aftermath of Spygate, he of the helping hand when it comes to Rex Ryan disciplining Braylon Edwards, he of the arbitrary suspension system that seems to go after some players and leave others in the clear (Favre?), his already dubious record as an even-handed commissioner is at its tipping point.  If Vick's words are true, he needs to be run out of this league faster than the Black Sox were barred from baseball (that took a whole season).  Goodell is proving to be anything but even-handed and plays favorites with the owners he favors and the markets he deems most profitable.  His job as commissioner is to treat all clubs equally, not to give advice to the Jets, play P.R. man for the Patriots when they get caught cheating, and not to steer Michael Vick towards markets he finds more appealing.

Let me be clear: I LOATHE Michael Vick.  I wouldn't be following the Bills this season if he was Buffalo's QB.  But Buffalo deserves the chance to woo any player they wish without the commissioner of the league being just another obstacle they have to deal with.  If Vick is telling the truth (his history of lying clouds the issue), Goodell should be fired immediately.  His job is to represent Buffalo and Cincinnati's interests equally compared to his favored markets in Philadelphia, Foxboro, and New Jersey.  He has failed at his job and the league's integrity is at issue.  It's time for this clown to go.
