  • Welcome, boss.

    I'm still pissed about the new scheduling rules you passed a few years ago. The ones that prevent east coast teams from traveling west more than twice per year. The Pittsburgh Steelers last played in Seattle in 2003.

    2003, Roger. 2003. While the Hawks have five 10AM starts this season.

  • Welcome Roger! Hope someday you'll consider Seattle a viable spot for hosting a Superbowl. It doesn't get colder than New Jersey in February (just a suggestion).

    That's awesome, kudos to the Rockhawk and team here. Great site and I'm glad that NFL execs like Roger Goodell are checking it out!

  • Welcome Mr. Goodell. I would find your perspective fascinating. Not that you'd ever post here, but just the point of view from the top of the NFL is very interesting. That being said:

    How the hell did the NFL fine Golden Tate for that block ? That was about as clean as you ever get. Then, in the same game, Robert Turbin had the same play and decleated Demarcus Ware, but no flag was even thrown. Probably because Ware didn't get hurt. So when we going to bust the flags out and just stop tackling at all ?

    That and like Jazz said, the scheduling leaves something to be desired. If, through the schedule, you're going to have a West Coast team travel out East more than 3 times, the least you could do is see to it at least half of them end up being later games. That is all.

    I'm not certain, but I think he was referring to seahawks.com. He said 2nd biggest website, not forum. And threw in the fact that we're run by fans. At least that's the way I read it.

  • Welcome to .net Mr. Goodell...I'm sure you have a thick skin being in your line of work.

    I agree with everyone who posted regarding the team traveling east to play at 10AM it just doesn't play into keeping the game competitive when the guys are half awake. If the Steelers can catch a break traveling West then the Seahawks should be able to catch a break traveling East to play at a decent hour. That is all.

Do you actually have a strategy for improving the game and the marketability of the game or do you just wing it as it comes? Guess I'll just put my blinders on and wait for the answer to my question that won't be answered because.. That's what Goodell would do.

    I'm going to take a guess here and imagine hits per day/week/month here are pretty close to Seahawks.com. I'm pretty sure not many fan based sites can say that about their site compared to their teams NFL site.

    Also many fan based sites main forums are rugby games with fewer rules.

    There are many here that think we are to strict about our conversatons on the main forum but doing that seems to have smoothed the waters between us and our NFL site. The NFL made it clear several years ago they wished ANY information about an NFL team come only through an approved venue of their choosing. If they have backed off even a little from that stance its good for us.

    Perhaps as more and more people get their football information electronically they will have to rethink the blind eye they have viewed us with in past years. Things work slowly through giant corporations. Remember how long it took to allow players to have access to water during training camps. That attitude was only removed within the last few years.

    Your father was a great man, and I appreciate him standing up for my civil rights and the rights of vets in Vietnam.

    Therefore, I won't bash you. However, about auto-flags on hard hits, gimping the ability of running backs to lower their shoulders, league scheduling for the Seahawks and getting a Super Bowl up here...

    Goodell is Winston Churchill compared to that tool Stern.

    Whatever you feel about Goodell the NFL has turned into a fiscal and social powerhouse under his watch, and the moves he's making (ill-conceived or not) towards increasing player safety have mitigated a growing PR nightmare (are we even talking about long term effects of concussions anymore).

    Not to say you’re not suspect Goodell, but it's really hard to find fault from a league and ownership perspective in the moves you make.

  • Hey Rog! Welcome! This is an awesome place for football-loving regular Joes like us.

    Now if you ever need to talk, vent, or cry on a shoulder, you know where to find me. I totally understand the pressure and scrutiny you face on a daily basis. And while you have a hard job, look on the bright side: at least you don't have to compete against the teams in your league.

    As a longtime commissioner of fantasy football leagues I have to enforce league rules, levy fines, create favorable schedules for east coast teams AND try to kick virtual ass on the virtual football field. But even though my job is more demanding, please don't be intimidated. Pop in now and then to share how your job is going. And don't be shy about asking advice. When it comes to high-stakes commissioning... been there done that, good buddy! :th2thumbs:

  • Roger,

    Welcome to .net and thanks for the kudos. It's nice to get validation of what a great community we have here. Our membership should take pride in how they represent the 12s online being recognized.

    P.S. seriously rog, the schedulng bias towards eastern time zone teams sucks. Could you please check into that for us and see what you can do?

    Thanks and best wishes,

    -s
    RIP Les. We will miss you.

  • Also... some advice... Need to restructure the league... Salt Lake City and Toronto are prime targets for an NFL team. Jacksonville's market has been chewed up by Tampa, Miami and Atlanta, but the entire Salt Lake Basin is a scattered group of fans that would rally behind a team in that region, which would probably include a ton of support from Boise and Western Montana. Not to be theocratic, but a Salt Lake City team would also land the Mormon Church. Salt Lake City could sustain a fanbase for an NFL team that doesn't negatively effect other team's markets, unlike Jacksonville trying to move in on the Tampa and Miami fanbases that were already established. I also hear Jaguars have been found in Southern Utah from time to time.

    Buffalo needs to move to Toronto. Time to get an NFL team in Canada and capture a large part of the Canadian market the NFL hasn't been able to land. Toronto's close enough to Buffalo that Buffalo fans would still make the trip to see a Bills game because Buffalo and Toronto are really close together. You don't lose too much of the Buffalo fanbase and you gain a huge fanbase in Eastern Canada. Any of the remaining Bills fanbase lost in the move would be absorbed by the Steelers and Browns. The Western Canada fanbase will still belong to the Southwestern Canadian Team, the Seattle Seahawks, and the Central Canadian fanbase will still belong to the Packers.

    Is it me or does this just seem too logical for the NFL to do? Get it done and forget about L.A. That fanbase is already shelling out a crapload of money for the Chargers, Niners and Raiders. No need to go screw that up with a new team.

    You do realize that much absentee support in that region goes to the Seahawks, right?

  • Along with Denver, Oakland, Phoenix and San Francisco. We have a good number of fans in that region, but we in no way dominate that market. No team dominates that market because it's a largely untapped market by the NFL. The only football teams that really have that market are college football teams because it's a scattered split market with little fervor for the NFL. If Salt Lake City was a place where one or two of the NFL teams captured a predominant part of the market and generated a substantial amount of revenue for one of two of those teams, it would be a different story. Reality is.. It's a big college football market with a thin fanbase dedicated to 4 NFL teams when it could be a region that generates a much more avid fanbase for the team that's placed there along, which generates much more revenue than the thinned out and split up fanbase currently occupying that region.

    Also... The only way to end East Coast Bias is by shifting the NFL's market West.

    I've met maybe 20 Seahawk fans in Utah. I'm sure there are many more in Montana and Idaho. Utah is a fair weather state in terms of fandom. Lots of Steeler fans, Niner fans, and Cowboy fans. After the Saints won it all, people were sporting Brees jerseys all over--and I'm not sure I'd ever seen saints paraphernalia prior to that around here.
