The Washington Post reports that NFL owners are planning to meet to discuss Roger Goodell’s role in player discipline.
Although it’s uncertain whether Goodell’s authority would be reduced, the decision to reevaluate his role resolving appeals is the first solid sign the outcome of Tom Brady’s court case could have a lasting and significant impact on his position.
“There will certainly be discussion about that,” one owner said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic. The owner said he is “not sure where it will lead.”
I would suspect any changes won’t be significant, but the fact the owners plan to meet about this indicates they see the whole ordeal with Tom Brady as an embarrassment.
Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank has said as much.
