Multiple NFL owners have expressed “strong support” for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for his handling of “DeflateGate” and attempt to maintain the integrity of the game, according to Jason Cole of the Bleacher Report.
Cole points out that even Cowboys owner Jerry Jones showed his support for Goodell by calling his ruling “fair,” even though Dallas has been hit by penalties from the league in the past.
Despite early speculation that Goodell may do harm to his support from NFL owners, Cole gets the impression that it’s just the opposite and there is now more support from around the league.
The Patriots several aspects of the Ted Wells report into question Thursday after they released an extensive response in the form of Wellsreportcontext.com.
Many have suggested that Goodell’s relationship, which was considered to be very good, with Patriots owner Robert Kraft is likely damaged beyond repair now that they’ve been hit hard with penalties from the NFL and QB Tom Brady is facing a four-game suspension.
Unfortunately, it sounds like there is still a long ways to go in this matter, as Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports mentioned earlier in the day that the “DeflateGate” saga is likely in just the “second quarter” of what will probably be a long and drawn out process.
