NFL fans get apology letter from Roger Goodell

It was nice waking up this morning knowing that the NFL was back in the hands of real referees and everything in the world order was back in place.  A nice added touch from the league was when I received a letter from Roger Goodell via email apologizing for the lockout and more excuses for the inconvenience of putting  amateurs on a professional field.

That's a good start.  Now we can get back to talking about what's really important — Bountygate and Tim Tebow's Wildcat.

The NFL Commissioner's letter read in part:

"I believe in accountability, not excuses.  And I regret we were not able to secure an agreement sooner in the process and avoid the unfortunate distractions to the game.  You deserve better."

By "you" he means us.

Goodell added:

"As a lifelong fan, this wasn't an easy process for anyone involved.  I particularly want to thank commend the replacement officials for taking on an unenviable task and doing it with focus and dedication in the most adverse of circumstances."

The commish starts with how the "focus is on the players and the action on the field"and not labor negotiations and ends with him praising the returning refs.

Still, no mention of the Green Bay Packers.


  1. The Green Bay Packers went 15-1 last season before losing to the Giants in the NFC playoffs. The Packers played great football and had one of the best offenses in recent history. Packer fans (all in Green Bay Packers Jerseys) were treated to an amazing year (until the playoffs).
    This year has been a little different. The Packers had more losses after Week 3 than they had in the whole season last year (if you count the "Fail Mary" debacle as a loss).
    While the Packers may not look like the Packers of recent history, have no fear, Cheeseheads and Sconnies, there is no reason to panic.
    Here are seven reasons why.
