Roger Goodell Just Confirmed My Suspicions By Saying He Didn't Know About The Laremy Tunsil Situation
I am usually not one for conspiracy theories. They are usually too outlandish and inconceivable for my tastes. That being said, if Roger Goodell is really going to try to tell me that he had absolutely no knowledge of the Laremy Tunsil situation while it was taking place then he is CLEARLY trying to hide something. Literally the entire world knew about the Laremy Tunsil drama. The internet was blowing up with every joke and crying Jordan face you could possibly imagine. Every team in the building was undoubtedly talking about the pros and cons of taking him as he slipped down out of the top 5. Even the networks were doing their best to cover it without accidentally mentioning the word "weed". Yet the guy in charge of the entire league - whose only responsibility is to take a card from a team executive and read a name off of it every 10 minutes - was "too busy" to listen to the ONLY actual news that was circulating during HIS draft?
That sounds just about as unbelievable as a multi-billion dollar organization claiming they couldn't get their hands on an elevator surveillance video in which an active member of said organization knocked his girlfriend unconscious. Obviously I am not comparing this to the Ray Rice incident at all, but there is precedence to say that Roger Goodell isn't telling the whole truth when he claims he doesn't have knowledge of something he should easily have knowledge of. What else could have been taking up his time behind the curtains that he was oblivious to literally everything going on around him? I'm not going to accuse him of hacking Laremy Tunsil's social media platforms, but is it that out of bounds to say that he might have had something to do with it? He said it himself. Situations like that are "what makes the draft so exciting" That's an actual quote. About the NFL Draft. The most boring event in all of professional sports. He's exactly right. A picture of a player smoking a banned substance through a gas mask and having his text messages - indicting his former University of shady business practices - leaked are the only things that make the draft exciting. If DeflateGate has taught us anything it's that when there isn't actual football to be played, Roger Goodell will do ANYTHING to keep the NFL exciting.
