Watch Roger Goodell Talk Out His Ass About Player Safety, Dab
Eric Goldschein 03:09 pm, February 05th, 2016
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, whose integrity was completely blown to smithereens last offseason and basically every moment before and since, trotted himself out as a spokesman for the league in an interview with Robin Roberts today. He talked a big game about player safety, which he always does, and then dabbed, which means that the dance craze has now fallen off a cliff and no one can do it ever again.
Goodell stuck to the company line, insisting that the NFL was at the forefront of player safety research and that the advances made by the NFL would benefit "the military" and "brain disease in general." This comes on the heels of recent Outside The Lines reports, one which states that the NFL pulled out of funding a Boston University study on head trauma and another that says the league "steers research away from potentially uncomfortable truths" about football and brain disease.
The NFL is pouring money into brain trauma research. But how much of it is really about protecting the players and how much is basically a PR stunt? Owner stooge Goodell will stick to his story, of course:
And then, as you can see, he fucking dabbed, which I really wish Robin Roberts had not brought up at all, because now that happened and Cam Newton has to find a new way to express joy. Thanks Robin.
