NFL Player: “As for Goodell, he needs to drop his nuts”

Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com talked to a current NFL player and that player called out NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and he didn’t mince any words in doing it.

“Do it one-on-one like their predecessors used to do. When Gene Upshaw and Paul Tagliabue went into a room, they got it done. That’s what needs to happen now,” the player said. “The players in there are smart, but they don’t know how to close a deal. As for Goodell, he needs to drop his nuts. He needs to have the power to do a deal. It needs to be two guys in a room.”

This was a totally disrespectful statement to be making about the NFL Commissioner and it’s clearly the reason this player requested that his identity be kept unknown.

I’m not really following what “Goodell should drop his nuts” means…I guess I’m not educated like this guy. If this player is referring to acting like a grown ass man and having some balls…then I guess they circumcized him a little too much and cut his off at child birth. You obviously don’t have any nuts if your going to keep your identity anonymous. IF your going to make a statement like that have the balls to stand by it.

I’m not a fan of Goodell but at least it seems that the only thing that is going to be missed is a pointless HOF game. Im not going to cry over that.

Btw, this site seems like its fading fast….I mean it would be nice to come on here and get some real insight of whats going on with the Birds. Dave freakin Spadaro gives you more insight right now, Instead I come on here to get a copy and paste from profootballtalk and a bunch of imposter phillies fans who bitch constantly about the best team in baseball. damn

Over a year ago you warned guys on here that if they didn’t watch their language, they’d be put off forums. There are many on here who can’t communicate or state an opinion without the use of expletives or taking the name of God in vain, it’s more than pathetic, it’s disgusting. Using tje F-bomb with the two middle letters with character symbols is still stinkin’ foul language. And now Garry, you ask people to comment on a reference regarding the commish’s genitals per an article. If you find it poor journalism, then why not just disregard it? I like to read good opposing opinions backed by some fact, but too often this has become a mud pit of negative social networking.

Im sorry but any guy that ask me to drop my nuts has to be side ways.

Pheag. I see your point about this site. For myself im more interested in seeing the comments over seeing the articles.

Iggles. fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck LOL.

Sooo what!! I’m tired of all this talking back and forth…Theres been too much talking, owners, players, attorneys, Goddell,all that is involved need to step up. All these rich people arguing over money is pitiful. The lowest paid NFL player makes at least 300K a season. Lets see, they work half the year and make 3 to 4 times as much as the average American HOUSEHOLD (THATS FACT!!!). (lowest paid players) I mean give me a break Chad Hall made over 400K last season…If these players are aguing about medical coverage, then heres the answer buy some!!!! you can get good coverage at about $4000 a year, instead of buying that Bentley, putting in Olympic size swimming pool, buying $1 million houses…There are some players and former players who are being impacted the most by this lockout, and its those players that haven’t played many seasons because of injury, players from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s…..Salaries weren’t the same as they are now, so any one of those players that may have health issues, may not have health coverage because they can’t aford it,,,now this this NFL lockout BS…This lockout isn’t effecting the rich dumbies in charge, its impacting the passionate fans, the players that paved the way for these current dumb asses. Its selfishness on both parties from every direction as I can see…Right now the players have me PO’d, how can they say they are for the players receiving proper medical benefits, but the longer the lockout holds out, what about all those players with medical coverage right now! Doesnt make any sense to me…

Pheage and VR – kudos – great posts.

Iggs – I got you, and I guess you were brought up with good manners and all… but it’s really not the language that’s the problem. The f word (to make it respectable for you) is the most versitile word in the English language (to quote a harvard professor), and it is an invaluable way to add emphasis and drive a point home. But trash talk, hateful (and otherwise offtopic) speech IS problematic on this website, and detracts fromt he value for sure. However, let’s be honest…this site is a side project for G, to get some extra bucks through ads and provide a forum for philly sports conversation. It is NOT classy, professional, held to any standard, or limited to any range of appropriateness. You can wish/ask for it to become otherwise, but as the poster before me always says – lets ‘be real’.

Don’t judge me or anyone else in here. If you don’t like it then leave. G’s job is to talk about interesting or in many cases dumb things that pro athletes do and to have debates. This idiotic statement clearly fits into that category and G even calls the player out on it.

So hop up on your high horse and ride on outta here.

Schill, Bugs, I couldn’t of said it better myself. Hey, Iggles, I know it was me you were talking about, with the character symbols in the Fbomb. So here this is just for you- F^@K, F^@KING, F^@KER, F^@KOFF, GO F^@K. Just kidding…. 😀 Stop taking things so serious. Life is too f^@king short. This is a fun site, where all of us can vent, give our opinions, & talk about our squads. Their are too many people on here that get their panties in a bunch. If you don’t like what we say, go & blog on CSN philly’s shitty website, where you are sensored like a third world country, for even saying DAMN.
BTW, go f^@k, this is AMERICA.
