Goodell will return ANYONE'S message

If you call or email NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, there’s a realistic chance that he’ll get back to you – no matter who you are. Just ask James Owen.

The Broncos fan and amateur blogger sent an email to Goodell voicing his displeasure with the CBA negotiations. (Owen believes the NFL and NFLPA are ignoring the fans.) Goodell returned the email with a phone call.

“He said he got my email and wanted to first off thank me for sending my concerns to him, and wanted to let me know they are always concerned about the fans and wouldn’t be in position where it was if it wasn’t for the fans,” Owen told Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post. “It was the standard stuff we’ve heard from the league, but he added some personal stuff to it.”

Owen and Goodell actually spoke for 15 minutes. According to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, Goodell returns messages from fans “on a fairly regular basis”.

Guys just because he did not answer your email does not mean this is fake.  All it means is he does not have enough time in the day to answer every email phone call or letter that comes in.  This post says nothing about what the chance is 1 in 100 or 1 in 1000.  Goodell probably gets about 1000 emails a day from fans and also concerning nfl business matters.  First priority is going to be business, so if he gets a chance and answers 3 of the 750 emails from fans my thought is at least he is making an effort. 

If he spends 30 to 45 minutes in his day to answer emails to fans of the NFL I think thats great.  Just because he did not answer your one email means nothing.

Goodell is extremely inconsistent. Yes he does answer mail and even phone calls at times, other times you can send 1000 registered mails and not even get a form letter back.

And you have a heck of a higher chance in getting a reply if you have a blog that's read by 100s of people, as opposed to a regular individual with no pull.

Not true at all.  I sent Goodell a registered letter complaining about the monopoly that Directv has with the Sunday Ticket package.  Directv is an incompetent organization and as such should not have sole control over NFL rights to individuals.  I got absolutely no response from anyone at the NFL, much less Goodell.

So the whole thing is a lie - just because he answered one guy doesn't mean he answers everybody, or even much of the correspondence he gets.

This is totally a fabrication of the truth with the NFL and Roger Goodell answering all emails.  I have sent emails to the NFL offices regarding the hypocricy of all the various fines levied against James Harrison as a way for the NFL to protect the health of their players, yet they want to go to an 18 game schedule.  Roger Goodell is the most inconsistent leader of an organization in both professional sports and the private sector.  Oh by the way Roger, here is my email address: .  I will be waiting! Sincerly, Rick.
