My point was that there is a public outcry about it and evidence that he had knowledge that he didn't share. Part of the reason they never get into it with reporters is because they rarely speak with them. that is something I love about Dana, even if you don't like his answers he will always give you one. Many owners never address public outrage.

As to your comment that they never use vulgar language, Stern last year made a joke on air about Jim Rome beating his wife and got a ton of flak for it. So.... yeah.
My apologies I didn't mean you personally. I was speaking towards players whining about their safety, only to get upset when new tackling rules are in place.

Goodell did not handle spygate like Dana has suspended fighters who talk out of line and roid. The NFLPA wouldn't allow such emotional repercussions. Stern if i remember said have you stopped beating your wife. Neither of those compare up to a Dana tirade. Seriously

UFC/mma is not seen as a respectable sport compared to others. Dana is pushing it forward and pulling it back with how he acts. Goodell didn't call Richard Sherman a fucktard or idiot or weird or jackass. David Stern isn't going around calling international prospects nobodies. That's petty stuff

Haha no worries I didn't take it personally. I do agree with you that Dana's tirades are more vulgar. I just think a lot of people act like he is on another planet. I like that he actually gives his opinion rather than equivocating and hiding behind his PR management like the other owners do.
