I'm thinking this isn't gonna look good on his application for early reinstatement.
With Pac-Man having more trouble, another Bengal getting arrested recently - I'm suddenly wondering if this could all end up backfiring on Goodell. How much farther can he go if his new get tough policy doesn't end up changing player behavior? And if he tries even stiffer punishments, won't the NFLPA be obligated to go to war??
Maybe he meant he was gonna be the (Bud)Man of the year.
I guess I'm just a sucker, because I actually believed him when he came out and took blame a few weeks ago and sounded very contrite. You'd think I wouldn't get suckered in by one of these doofuses again at this stage of my life, but oh well. At least he doesn't play for my team and his absence might actually be beneficial for my team's chances this year.
Glad he didn't hurt anyone (other than his rep) while he was doing that.

He's actually been back for like three months or so, since right before the draft, I think. And yes, this is a good thing. EDIT:Here is a link to the story when TMQ redebuted on Page 2, because any archive of his pre-draft edition there.
