If Roger Goodell is trying to play hard-dog in light of the Michael Vick case by not reinstating Odell Thurman today, then he's a putz. From all we know, Thurman has kept his side of the deal, sought out counseling, and cleaned his life up. If there's something more we don't know, the league better release it quickly so as not to look like inconsistent buffoons. You know who looks like a genius now? Paul Tagliabue who retired as NFL commissioner this past year. Just when everything hits the fan he rides off into the sunset. Best . . . decision . . . ever.
