Roger Goodell's press conference left DaTech Guy impressed.
By holding a long press conference and answering many questions (even if many of those answers were vague) he appears to be open to critique. By taking responsibility he deflects problems from their sponsors. By announcing a series of programs he gives other people skin in the game for NFL money to continue to flow and finally by saying all will be done by the Super Bowl he makes it more likely that the story can fade for most of this season so everyone can make their bucks and enjoy their games.
The media cheerleaders are left why nobody is following their whine.
