The NFL should oust Goodell. Sen. Richard Blumenthal took a shot at the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday, demanding that the league take a tougher stance on players charged with domestic violence.
“The NFL has failed to lead on the issue of domestic violence & sexual assault by its players. These heinous crimes must be taken more seriously with greater oversight & accountability. As the regular season starts, I’m demanding Commissioner Goodell take stronger action,” the Connecticut Democrat wrote on Twitter, adding a letter he sent to the league’s top exec.
Blumenthal had sent an earlier letter to Goodell on the same topic, and followed up Thursday saying the commissioner’s response was lacking. “I remain deeply concerned that the NFL is continuing its failure to take the incidents of domestic violence and sexual assault among players seriously,” he wrote.
