Roger Goodell Brought Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman, And Jason Witten On Stage At The Start Of The Draft So He Wouldn't Get Booed, Fails Miserably

ESPN- Commissioner Roger Goodell will have some company when he walks to the front of the stage Thursday night to start the NFL draft at AT&T Stadium — the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Booed in the past when taking the stage, Goodell is expected to be flanked by some Cowboys greats — Hall of Fame quarterbacks Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman, as well as probable future Hall of Fame tight end Jason Witten. “I’m sure he’s going to get a good response with us being out there,” Staubach said. “If they boo, all of us are in trouble.”

Cowboys fans have not been pleased with Goodell since he established and upheld running back Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension last season. Without Elliott, the Cowboys (9-7) went 3-3 during his absence and missed the playoffs. To start last year’s draft in Philadelphia, Goodell was soundly jeered and actually playfully implored the crowd to boo louder, which they obliged.

Look, I hate Roger Goodell as much as most NFL fans do. Granted I don’t hate him as much as any blogger, reader, or internet mogul from the New England area. But I hate him for all he stands for and represents. But the one thing I could respect from him is if he played of the heel side of things like all commissioners do. David Stern used to looooooove fucking with the crowds at The Garden. I think a reason Adam Silver became so beloved so quickly is that people were conditioned to hearing fans cheering for him once he relieved Stern in the second round. Gary Bettman gets booed just for being a boob and wears it. But Goodell is scared of getting booed not only because he’s a commish but because he completely bungled yet ANOTHER suspension and pissed off yet another fan base? What a fucking clown shoe. If you can’t embrace being the villain like Vince McMahon and get booed, by soft ass Cowboys fans no less, you gotta get the fuck out of the commissioner game.

Also I can’t imagine Jerruh loves the idea of Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman, and Jason Witten crossing the picket line and helping out a guy that took a few million out oof Jerry’s bank account. That’s the kind of shit that will have you ending up on Jerruh’s 8 million acre ranch being hunted since human is the most dangerous game.

Just kidding, Jerruh definitely doesn’t do that*.

*Probably

P.S. If the Patriots somehow ended up with the draft, I guarantee Roger The Dodger wouldn’t have showed up. Blue Flu like you read about
