(CBSMiami) — In wake of a federal judge ruling against the NFL and in favor of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, NFL owners are planning to “discuss the possibility of changing Commissioner Roger Goodell’s role in the player disciplinary process,” according to the Washington Post:
Owners of NFL teams plan to discuss the possibility of changing Commissioner Roger Goodell’s role in the player disciplinary process, several people familiar with the situation said Friday.
Although it’s uncertain whether Goodell’s authority would be reduced, the decision to reevaluate his role resolving appeals is the first solid sign the outcome of Tom Brady’s court case could have a lasting and significant impact on his position.
“There will certainly be discussion about that,” one owner said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic. The owner said he is “not sure where it will lead.”
Will Goodell soon have less power in disciplinary matters going forward?
