Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared on “The Jim Rome Show” Wednesday and discussed his teammate’s possible suspension and Roger Goodell. When asked if Commissioner Goodell has too much power when it comes to player punishment, Rodgers said that if players have a problem with the commissioner’s power, then it’s on them.
If that is the case, we have nobody to blame but ourselves. Because we had the opportunity in the CBA to make some legitimate changes to that. I think there was probably too much pressure to come to a deal when we had all the power on our side.
That was something we should have had negotiated into the CBA because there shouldn’t be somebody who is the judge, jury and executioner, as they say.
