Goodell not motivated by “timeline” in making decision on Favre

While the NFL’s top security official met with Jenn Sterger in New York, Commissioner Roger Goodell was in Atlanta for Thursday’s Ravens-Falcons game.

Goodell said during a pregame sitdown with Rich Eisen on NFL Network that he hasn’t been briefed on today’s discussions with Sterger yet.  Goodell will return to his New York office on Friday.

Sterger’s meeting would seem to indicate that the NFL’s investigation into the matter will conclude soon.  But Goodell wouldn’t promise anything, saying he’s “never pushed by timelines . . . we will look at all the facts and make a smart decision.”

Goodell mentioned they want to talk to all the appropriate people in the case, but we have to imagine they have done so while waiting for Sterger to decide whether to talk.

    So when this all started it was to be expedited……now, when things don’t go as planned they want to take their time. Nice witch hunt Mr. Goodell. Didn’t somebody make an illegal tackle somwhere? Go fine them and move on.

    If the Vikings lose two in a row, they will be out of it and then Goodell can break Favre’s precious streak with a suspension.

    Col Clueless Klink will do his part but the question is whether the players will go along with the plan.

    Favre better watch out.

    Dean Goodell has had him on “double secret probation” for several weeks now.

    How can Goodell fault a guy for only doing what he was taught in Green Bay?He didn’t know any better.It is a practice that is standard with Packers and Packer fans alike.

    Roger Goodell is the Jerry Jones of NFL Comissioners.

    If the Vikings/Packers game is a prime time game again, no decision will be made until after that game. Goodell is all about money and if #4 is not playing the Packers there would be a lot less $$
