Tedy Bruschi Flips Out, Calls For Goodell's Resignation

On the heels of Roger Goodell's press conference on domestic violence, former New England Patriots linebacker and current ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi unleashed the hounds of hell on the commissioner for being hypocritical about punishing players versus himself.
"Roger Goodell could've lived up to the standards he placed on players when I was in the league," Bruschi said. "For those mistakes he made -- if someone else made those there would've been heavy repercussions."
Bruschi was part of that Patriots team whom Goodell threw the book at after "Spygate," so his beef is clearly personal. That being said, Goodell will be taking home all of his $44 million dollar yearly salary and not spending one single day "suspended" from coming to work for said mistake. On the other hand, Bruschi's argument for the commissioner's resignation, seeing as the reason Goodell was giving a press conference in the first place was to apologize for being too lenient on Ray Rice.
When asked to respond to those asking for him to step down, Goodell had this to say: "I'd say no, because I made a mistake."
