Fodder for 'Feed' Bag

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell could have used a face to go along with his proposals last week to curb the domestic violence that seems all to prevalent among some players this season. A suggestion would be to hire former Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice to head a department of compliance.
Goodell's press conference in which he offered contrition but not too many specifics on how the league was going to deal with such cases, received poor reviews from a number of groups including the media, players and anti-domestic violence organizations.


add NFL: When Rice ran the State Department under President George W. Bush, it was reported that she had an interest in one day working at 400 Park Avenue, the league's office address in New York City. Hiring her would smooth over the growing doubt on how Goodell is going to bring the violence and crime under control.


last add NFL: So far, the college football season has produced few good match-ups among the Top 25 teams. A couple of exceptions were USC's thrilling win over Stanford three weeks ago and last week's close Auburn win over Kansas State. But the pros have produced some exciting games including Seattle's overtime win on Sunday against the Denver Broncos, the Arizona Cardinal's victory against the San Francisco 49ers and the San Diego Chargers defeat of the Seahawks.
