This one may have escaped notice, but Ocho "wrote a letter" to Goodell on gis blog. While I personally still think Goodell is the worst thing to happen to football, Chad's perspective is refreshingly realistic. And his offer to have his fines earmarked for player benefits is a great idea.
Dear Dad,I know it has been a rough week, so I wanted to reach out. Players dying, players suing and on top of that my peers are just going off on you in the media. It does not help that ESPN has all of a sudden become Medical TV with damn near every brain expert on the planet. This has got to be the worst week ever. Since no one is showing any support, I figured I would be the first. You are in one big ass catch 22 and quite frankly, I am not sure there is any solution. One thing I think can help is killing the NFL PR machine.Y’all do a darn near perfect job at portraying this game as one played by heroes.But let’s be real dad. This is a nasty, dirty and violent game with consequences. Sign up or go get a regular job. Watch it or turn off the TV and go fishing with your kids. It is really that simple. I know there are probably legal and financial implications that prevent this blunt depiction, but am not sure if you have a choice. If you don’t say it now, the mounting evidence being revealed publicly will say it for you very soon. In all, I love you and if anyone can lead us out of this mess, it will be you. Oh by the way, I have a deal for you. Am having a rebound year and plan to do a lot of celebrating in the end zone. Can my fine money go to supporting ex-players suffering?Sincerely,

The part I like best is that Chad plans on getting fined this year a lot for end zone celebrations.
