NFL Bosses get more power over the league.
He has the right to control the narrative in his favor, just as it is happening to Daniel Snyder, the boss of the Washington Commanders.
If they are implicated in a dispute, they can find a fallen person, as long as they cannot deny their involvement.
In the end, Commissioner Roger Goodell works for them and not the other way around.
That’s why former NFL players Dominic Foxworth I don’t understand what is happening in relation to the sanctions imposed on the owner of the Miami Dolphins team, Stephen M. Ross.
The punishment of NFL owners should be decided by an impartial party, not Goodell, his employees.

“Sentence of NFL owners should be decided by an impartial party, not their employee Goodell,” Foxworth tweeted.
For the record, Ross was found not guilty of tanking charges filed by former head coach Brian Flores.
Flores claimed that he was offered $100,000 for every loss to improve his draft position.
As a result, the Dolphins forfeit their 2023 first round and 2024 third round picks.
Ross has also been suspended indefinitely from the NFL committees of which he is a part.
He has also been suspended as team owner until October 17th and fined $1.5 million.
Ross’ punishment doesn’t make sense
Even if the Dolphins weren’t able to sign Brady or Peyton, the league would like to reiterate the tampering as a serious violation.
However, Ross’ punishment does not affect him and the Dolphins at all.
The drafts they have seized can be useless, especially with their roster full of talent that can go on for several seasons.
Similarly, a $1.5 million fine for a billionaire like Ross is a loose change.
Finally, how can the league guarantee that it is not performing its duties as an owner?
Foxworth has a point regarding Goodell suspending Ross.
It doesn’t feel right and the restrictions have no sting.
