The Commissioner of the NFL is a joke ladies and gentlemen. If he honestly feels that there has not been an increase in knee injuries he is a fool.
@AlbertBreer: I asked Goodell directly about such low hits being a result of rules against high hits. He said NFL data shows no increase in knee injuries.
Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots is among at least 41 National Football League players who have had a season-ending knee injury this season, a 64 percent increase from 2011 that comes as defenders have sought to avoid penalties and fines for hits to the head.
A 64 percent increase come on Goodell, get your head out your butt.
