Perhaps your cover line should have asked, HOW FAR WILL ROGER GOODELL GO TO RUIN THE GAME OF FOOTBALL? [Dec. 17]. Of course, every rule change that lessens impact contributes to the safety of the players. Reducing the speed limit on U.S. highways to 25 m.p.h. would contribute to the safety of drivers too. The players know the risks of playing football, and they are very well compensated for taking those risks. Let's just get on with the game and keep Goodell on the bench.

I applaud Goodell's efforts to protect and preserve the game....
