Toomer compares Goodell to the Nazis

Sometimes the hyperbole about the players or the owners or Roger Goodell goes just a little too far.

And solidifying that point for us is former Giants WR Amani Toomer, who compared Goodell to the Gestapo.

“I think the way Mr. Goodell has handled this, the way he’s kind of using his power, is like the kind of a Gestapo-type situation, controlling the players, not letting the judicial system do its work,” Toomer said Wednesday (via Pro Football Talk) . “It rubs a lot of players the wrong way, and that’s why you see a lot of players now lashing out at Mr. Goodell.”

Is it a ridiculous comparison? Yes. Does Toomer need to apologize for saying something to stupid and offensive? Yes. Will these comparisons to Nazis ever end? Hopefully.

How enlightening.  We now know that Toomer is an idiot, and danny brubaker and dgraves72 are both racists.  Everyone should be proud.

The comment you just made tells a lot about you! It's 2 bad that you can't get on the level as blacks. I think you just want to be black. You are very upset with yourself. The black athletes take the white woman. They make millions of dollars and they can say what Amani Tomer says and not get into trouble. Also I know you are upset with Mike Vick. He may have made mistakes but now he is back on top. The rise of a Black and Hipanic nation makes you want to hide. We are on the rise. "The first shall be last and the last shall be first" or let me put it 2 you this way, the day of white america is coming to an end!

Toomer compares Goodell to the Nazis

I thought the Nazi's were about concentration camps, gas chambers, murder, theft and degradation. And, I didn't know the Nazi's paid so well and the Nazi's "subjects" ha
d 1st class accommodations.  I didn't read where those in death camp had strip clubs for me. You learn something new each day. Thank you Amani for the enlightenment. Is that Amani Toomer or Amani TUMOR?  If he'd keep his mouth shut we'd only THINK he is ignorant, he opened his mouth and removed all doubt. He probably looks at toilet paper and wonders which side is up.

Gestapo has become commonplace slang for anyoen who attempts to disrupt due process and attacks individual righst.  That comparison to Goodell is certainly accurate.  he didn't call him a Nazi.  What an over reaction by this author.  Now if we are talking about David Stern, I think the full Nazi comparison may be apt lol.

Amani lacks a sense of history along with a limited vocabulary. I think the word Amani was looking to describe Goodell is omnipotent (which might be accurate) but the best he could come up with was Gestapo. Let's just hope Amani wasn't profiling. Put Goodell, with his looks, in a black suit with riding pants and knee high leather boots and what do you get?
