Roger Goodell can't have it both ways. The NFL commissioner has been adamant about his desire to increase the NFL regular season from 16 to 18 games, but he can't use concussions and ever-increasing fines for hits deemed illegal as a cover for upping the regular season. He's trying to make football safer, but is a hypocrite for lobbying for two more games which would undoubtedly cut down careers for numerous NFL players. While Goodell is trying to send a message, I think the only one that's coming across is the league wants to make more money.
