    To the detriment of the college game?

    That's like chastising a hooker for leaving a street pimp to move into the best brothel in town.....

    What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    I think that it was a good call by Goodell. Cheating is cheating.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    The NFLPA just had their chance to do something about these suspensions and chose not to. Personally I hate the arbitrary and ambiguous nature of Goodell's ruling but there really is nothing that's going to change it.

    Cheating is cheating.

    Punishments/fines are haphazard and seemingly random.

    That makes Goodell full of doublespeak, lies, and fail.

    Is there a suspension coming for Tavares Gooden? He broke NCAA rules as well. Pete Carroll left USC in shambles. Surely he's out the first five games? Good thing Jim Tressel isn't in the NFL. He'd have a suspension coming his way, right Commish? This is the same type of bullshit as Goodell 'fighting' for player safety while pushing for a longer season.

    Re: Pryor will be suspended after he enters the NFL

    Caleb King (RB-Georgia) is ineligible this year and will be allowed in the NFL draft.

    The NFL needs to stop trying to get in bed with the NCAA, or they might catch the hypocrisy themselves..

    Re: OT: Terrelle Pryor Ruling

    This is pathetic.

    Gene Smith & Jim Tressell offered Terrell Pryor to take a 5 game suspension if he wanted to play in the Sugar Bowl. As long as OSU won that Bowl game and made big money of it, the NCAA was perfectly fine with it. Now that they all made their money and have their pockets filled, they're going to make Pryor suffer for his mistakes, yet take their paycheck and enjoy a nice vacation. It's great to see Jim Tressell leave with MILLIONS of dollars and live a comfortable life, while Pryor is the only one held accountable for his mistakes.

    So is Mr. Goddell going to do anything about Peter Carroll? You know the guy that bolted a program before the revelations of cheating came through and is making 8 million dollars a year in the NFL.

    The sad part is that he didn't suffer anything (except for a nice big paycheck) yet all those kids who were there AFTER his tenure have to pay for his wrongdoings. So is Goddell going to do something about Carroll and protect the "integrity" of the sport? What a joke.

    I like it as well.

    These cheaters are viewing the NFL as their safe haven from their misgivings done in college. They get to the pros and almost thumb their nose at the problem, never once caring what they are doing to their institutions after they are outside the reach of the NCAA.

    I hope Goddell and the NCAA expand their cooperative.

    I'm in this boat as well.

    Although I think Pryor should have to wait until April to be eligible. The NFL came out and said he undermined the integrity of the NFL and the supplemental draft. If that's the case, he shouldn't be eligible.

    Once again, could somebody PLEASE point out to me evidence that the colleges involved in big time football or basketball today give two shits about anything but raking in the vast quantities of monies these programs generate, and why ANYONE would feel the slightest bit of angst when the programs are forced to lie in a bed of their own making?????? I mean really, the colleges as victims.....

    I defy anyone to make a claim that Gary was dirty.

    And when did I cast the college as the victim?

    Re: Pryor will be suspended after he enters the NFL

    I like it.

    Good to see this developing cooperative between the NFL and the NCAA.

    And the argument that this could / should be retroactive is silly to past players who had NCAA infractions is silly. It's a new initiative and nobody in the past is going to get the horns.

    The NFL is becoming the safe haven for those who screw around in the NCAA and I'm getting tired of it.

    Kudos Roger!

    BL, I agree.

    He was dirty, IMO. But you have to start somewhere and just because Carroll got in under the gun doesn't mean they shouldn't start the cooperative.

    Jim Tressel was actually a special guest of Mike Brown at Bengals camp the other day. They are very close. Lots of rumors that he's going to get hired by the Bengals next year.

    We all know that Goodell wouldn't do shit to a coach no matter what they did. Different rules for players. Our own drunk driving o-line coach is proof of that. Goodell is such a clown. They should make him VP of Marketing instead of Commish because that's all he really does.
