Whether or not it will be in a Vikings uniform is up in the air, honestly.

    Sure, they caught hell, but nothing really changed. Roger Goodell still calls all the shots and the Owners will continue backing his judgment (as suspect as it might be) as long as the NFL as a whole keeps their endorsements and profits. People are going to forget this story and Adrian Peterson will most likely suit up for the Bengals or the Patriots by the 2015 season.

    Or if the NFL really want to punish him force him to play for the Raiders.

    We will take him. And Incognito too.

    Independent arbitration for the Rice case may discover that Goodell knew about the video. That would be the end of his reign.

    Would you have someone that beat their kids working for you?

    Well, people with criminal records need to work just like everyone else. I'm not just going to disqualify someone from a job because they have a record. I'm going to determine if it is safe for me to hire them, and something that would be advisable for my business and if I feel comfortable with it, sure, I would hire them.

    Now, would I maintain their employment if they committed a crime? Again, it depends. If I feel like keeping them around will not endanger their fellow employees or my consumers and isn't going to cause any real problem, sure, I would keep them around.

    I'm under the impression that the owners are the only ones who can give Goodell the boot. I can be completely wrong on the matter, but from what Jerry Jones has said, the owners love Goodell.

    And if the independent arbitration establishes Goodell had knowledge of the video the owners will boot him.

    If that is the case, I would jump for joy and throw a party at my house. But in the mean time I won't be surprised if the owners stick it out with Goodell who has made owners richer and richer by the year.

    The calls for his head would be deafening. Sponsors would act.
