Roger Goodell is running out of players to suspend so he will now look to fine teams who have unruly fans. Goodell wants to make the experience for all fans, but short of expelling the Raiders from the NFL, there doesn’t seem to be too much that he could do.
Seriously, if the Raiders are going to get fined for the misconduct of their fans, where are they going to get the money to overpay for marginal free agents? Although, making the Raiders organization pay for the crimes of its fans could be a way to tackle jail overcrowding and balance California's budget.
Just kidding Raiders fans, it wasn’t even you who caused all of this. Goodell went undercover to a Patriots game last season with his 13-year-old niece and was appalled by the behavior of the New England fans.
Really? Goodell went to a sporting event in New England and was surprised by what he saw and heard. Talk about naïve.
To be that naïve, you would have to believe that opting out of the current CBA was a good thing. Oh wait …
