For most Americans their boss is their least favorite person, and the NFL is no different.
In a 300-player poll conducted by USA Today, 61% said they disapprove of the job Goodell has done overall, with most focusing on the increased fines of players for dangerous hits on defenseless receivers and quarterbacks and the perception of the commissioner’s investigation into the bounty matter.
At the same time while they don’t approve of the Commissioner they also said that they would not trust him with their jobs.
Probably the story line that has gotten the most attention when it comes to the Commissioner’s job performance was the way he handled the Saints’ bounty scandal investigation.
The poll was anonymous, but Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, told the newspaper, “I think it’s obvious that I disapprove.”
Honestly this should not be a shocker for the Commissioner, players and fans have made it quite clear where they stand on some of his decisions. With the 2012-13 season coming to a close with Super Bowl XLVII only a couple of days away, hopefully he can lay low, enjoy the festivities and start planning for a better 2013-14 season. He needs it!
