Glenn, Lou, and Christian marvel at "Ramblin' Roger's" ability to not answer any questions during interviews. This time it was with Gary Myers on "Chalk Talk," where Gary's pointed and important questions are largely ignored by Goodell's rambling, ridiculous "Answers."
[0:00:42] ... It. And so we did only a shock talk show. Where is GaryMyers of the New York Daily News you won't believe what comes out of his mouth. In this wants to leap into questions you can understand the Arctic. Of these things but the first question is simply asking him because world trying to figure this thing out. What ails the NFL's. Domesticviolence the policy. Mr. commissioner. The JoshBrown situation obviously has been another. Area of controversy a black guy. On the NFL domesticviolence. Issue could comes up once again that does not here. While all take a door appeared that was not treated correctly in ... [0:04:19] ... after the Ray Rice case to make 86 game mandatory suspension. For domesticviolence but it didn't know what we're just only Campbell came to think so you all he's right. We altered the policy for domesticviolence but they didn't put JoshBrown's case in the pile of domesticviolence. I mean this he's just he's a word Smith. He just goes on and on and on our this is the one we really care about right. How much are you gonna get an answer but this is the one we really care about his groups added a million times the last couple which why. Did TomBrady get a four game suspension. For maybe. Let's say did it in a ticket on a couple of puffs of air out of a football. And JoshBrown got one for beating his wife. Based on fact and JoshBrown was arrested a year ago made. And then the incident that became very well known to probable. Where he reportedly view was it was stronger winds knocking on her door and security had to be called wouldn't have been enough to. Put him in the situation. For more than one game suspension based on in December of 2014. On police came out with this new personal conduct policy. In August of 2014 you announce that. Domesticviolence abusers would get six games and last it was mitigating or aggravating circumstances. To ensure they have enough information at that point. In addition to the first set of documents that came out in August which I understand that the giants already had which means that the NFL already had. What more did you need to know at that point to make him get a suspension. More than one game or the way to I'd put it in some of the people put it. TomBrady gets four canes for. Supposedly depleting footballs and questions along JoshBrown gets one game for. Assaulting his wife. Well it it Gary I think you could have been better look at the facts ... [0:06:57] ... Craig. Did policy in the procedures and that in the penalties for domesticviolence. It is the only only offense that I know for the second offense his banishment. How some people who say why isn't the first when it becomes domesticviolence. Well in that August 2000 when I went out and speaking to various domesticviolence experts they actually recommended you don't do that. They recommended that the first. The defense the six games that matter practice to justify if we went to six and then they said banishment on the second so they understand the circumstances. Would be acceptable. But they thought that was very strong they want ultimately what you want in the domesticviolence cases is to get back to healthy relationship. And not to make it even more complicated. And that's the hope from the ... [0:09:41] ... the criticism that from Ray Rice in the summer of 2014. To JoshBrown. In October of 2016. That we really haven't seen any progress Italy. I couldn't agree and it couldn't disagree more carry. Very easily because it what you see here is a policy that's evolved. We've learned a lot but these are complex matters and when you would talk to the domesticviolence experts which I don't know if you do vote. These are typical matters to deal with you have rights. You have. And ...

NJ.com – Exactly two years ago Saturday, a NFL public service announcement condemning domestic violence titled ‘NO MORE’ was released.
The minute-long ad … featured multiple NFL players, including Giants quarterback Eli Manning. …
But when reminded Friday of his involvement in the PSAs, and asked for his reaction to the fact Mara said Thursday in a radio interview that kicker Josh Brown admitted to the organization he abused his wife, but was still re-signed and retained as a team employee, Manning, a team captain, said he could not offer much comment.
“I saw some new information that was revealed. I didn’t read into what exactly it was, so I’m probably not up to speed on everything,” Manning said. “Right there, you support your teammates, but also support the decision of the organization.
“Again, I’m not aware of what ownership said or any of the announcements. My focus this week has been getting ready for the Rams. Obviously, I don’t know what went on behind the scenes, all I can do is support my teammates and support the organization.”
This a really alarming. Eli Manning, the star of an NFL-sponsored public relations ploy service announcement decrying violence against women, takes a pass when it comes to actually commenting on actual domestic violence actually committed by his actual teammate. That champion of female empowerment, can’t be bothered to offer an opinion on the fact that his own kicker ignored his “NO MORE” campaign and his organization enabled the football- and spouse-kicking monster Josh Brown with coverups and contract extensions.
Of course, you’ve probably heard all about Manning’s non-comments by now. The nationwide shock and outrage over his silence on the matter has been echoing all across the country. From sea to shining sea, America has stood up in anger and shouted out with one voice that Eli Manning is a hypocrite for passing up the chance to denounce his teammate, his owner, and the NFL for this scandal.
No, wait. That didn’t happen. I’m sorry, I’ve got this mixed up. It’s Tom Brady that’s taking the heat. That’s it. Brady is the one being ripped in places like USA Today for being insufficiently furious at the league for their handling of Josh Brown. He called domestic violence a tragedy. Said he has no tolerance for bullies who abuse vulnerable people. But when he talked about how when it comes to disciplining players, he stays in his lane. And for that, he was put at the top of the national media’s Most Wanted List.
But when Eli Manning feigns ignorance and says he’s just focusing on the Rams game? And actually uses the words “support my teammates”? At a time like this? Crickets.
Congratulations, Roger Goodell. You have created a league where only person who loses in the court of public opinion not only hasn’t done anything wrong, he’s your best player. How about you throw money into a phony, insincere public service ad to stop that?
