Politics and the commish

"It is in this light that we regard Senator Goodell as invaluable to our struggle. His work against the blatant persecution of the Presidio 27 and his introduction of the first bill to cut off funds for the war have, in our opinion, heightened both antiwar consciousness and resistance to repression. He is one of only two national Republicans who deny Nixon the party unity behind his war policies that he seeks.

We want to make clear we neither expect nor desire endorsement of electoral politics or the two-party system. We are not making an effort to bring the movement into the system. We merely believe that it is in the interest of peace and the antiwar movement to keep Charles Goodell in the Senate."
LIARS LOL

"Way back in 1970, Sen. Charles Goodell, R-N.Y., lost his political career at least in part because he took legislative action to curb the unilateralist excesses of Richard Nixon. (Sen. Goodell lost to William F. Buckley's less-easily parodied brother James.) So, here's his kid, Roger, conducting himself in such a way that he probably should be standing on a balcony somewhere, his medals gleaming in the tropical sun. No wonder Nixon lusted after the job of the commissioner of the National Football League. Everything about the position would appeal to him."

Play The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy Game!

1. William F. Buckley, Founder of the conservative National Review.

2. His brother is James Buckley.

3. James Buckley defeated Charles Goodell for the US Senate in 1970.

4. Charles Goodell had a son named Roger, who is NFL Commissioner.

5. Roger Goodell is married to Jane Skinner of Fox News.

A Right-Wing Conspiracy in just 5 moves! To beat me, you have to produce your own Right-Wing Conspiracy in 4 moves or less. Think you can do it?


This is just too funny. Lil' Roger,...I can see him wearing a cowboys costume on many of his birthdays growing up. Just another elitist, ya know, smarter than the rest of us. :lol:

Guess you didn't catch Goodell's performance in front of Congress last week. The boy is pitiful. Definitely smarter than you,...just because of his position.

I can see it now,...Pudge and Goodell at the podium together next Spring. :D

Yeah, I guess I missed it. I don't get what is your point?

Your political proclivities and lessions certainly are above my head...

And Goodell is probably smarter than me. At least I would hope so. Myself being some shmo with a mundane part-time job, while he himself being arguably the most powerful man in American sports, the overseer of an $8 billion industry. Occasionally in this country, people get jobs based off merit. :clap:
