NFL commissioner Roger Goodell insisted Thursday he doesn’t think Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed, but acknowledged he can’t pinpoint why the quarterback remains unsigned.
In an appearance on FS1’s “First Things First,” Goodell was asked if Kaepernick’s play last season warranted a contract for the 2017 season.
“I’m not a football expert,” Goodell said, as transcribed by Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. “I’m a huge fan. I have a role as commissioner also, but for me, I watch the games and enjoy and I let the football people make those decisions.”
Everyone thinks Roger Goodell is a villain. He is a criminal mastermind that is abusing his powers as NFL commissioner. He tried to destroy Tom Brady’s legacy and he has no idea how to handle player violations and suspensions. He’s just a power hungry megalomaniac.
Nope, turns out he’s just Lennie from Of Mice and Men. Not a great look when the commissioner of football comes out and basically says “uh, I don’t really know much about football”. This isn’t an evil dictator, it’s a man with a chromosome deficit.
This man is a multi-millionaire and doesn’t understand football. I can’t begin to describe how much jealous I am of this man. Truly cannot knock the hustle. Literally faking it til you make it. He genuinely doesn’t know why Colin Kaepernick isn’t signed because he probably has no idea who Kaepernick even is.
Long live Roger Goodell.
