Commish comes to Cincinnati

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell came to Cincinnati for discussions with Mike Brown regarding the disenchantment with the CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement), to discuss with players about personal conduct and to visit the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

I found it interesting what Henry said after the commissioner addressed the players:

"I was really thinking in there that he said he had been in the league 25 years and was making it clear it's a big privilege to be even around the NFL, no matter what your job is in it," said Henry, who was arrested four times in a seven-month span from last November through June.

"It's a blessing. It's one of the best jobs you can have. I've been thinking a lot about how lucky I am and how many people would love to be in my shoes."

Palmer was impressed with the new commish:

"The main thing I took from it is that he's an accessible commissioner," Palmer said. "He said, `If there are any questions, if you guys want to talk, here's my e-mail address, call me, I will get back to you.' That's important and shows a lot about what type of person he is."

However, what will happen to Chris Henry after the legal part has run its course?

"We do have a very strict player conduct policy," Goodell said. "When the legal process has run its course, then our policy comes into play. It has not been presented to me as of yet. But when it does and I'm expected to rule on it, I will."
