We have enough information to say with some amount of certainty that Roger Goodell is the worst. The NFL’s commissioner is really good at making himself look terrible in essentially every situation because, well, he’s the worst.
For example, Goodell gave an interview to BBC Sport during his tour of the United Kingdom prior to Sunday’s New York Giants vs. Los Angeles Rams game. Plenty of folks don’t like the game because it’s an NFL game that takes place at 9:30 a.m. EST and it takes a home game away from one team, but this year’s game has a dark cloud over it regarding Giants kicker Josh Brown.
The entire situation has been bungled from the start, as Brown – who abused his wife, called her a slave, and called himself God – wasn’t dropped immediately from the Giants’ roster. In fact, the Giants were supportive of Brown at first and, instead of cutting him, put him on paid leave via the commissioner’s exempt list.
