NFL Draft 2011 Results: Roger Goodell Responds to Being Booed
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was booed when he first took to the podium before the NFL Draft began, and he was booed as he stepped up just seconds after 8 p.m. to officially start the draft.
Goodell said to the crowd, "I get it."
Then he took to social media to get his word out again.
Moments ago, Goodell used his Twitter account to reach the fans, tweeting: "I agree with fans here at Radio City. We want football. I'm with you. I get it."
This is going to sound ridiculously Pollyannish, but maybe a dose of real-time interaction with fans -- and who is more passionate than the draftniks that show up to Radio City every year? -- for both Goodell and NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith will help get this thing out of the courts and onto the field.
