Is Roger Goodell a real commissioner or just an empty suit? Dan Wetzel says this is his moment of truth:

You’ve seen the replay. If not, turn on a TV and wait 15 seconds. Expect President Obama and Mitt Romney to weigh in by noon.
This is Goodell’s Heidi game, a forever blemish he’ll never live down. The lockout may not have been his idea but it’s on his watch. Someone might as well start pre-production on a documentary now, the image of those two confused refs in the corner of the Seattle end zone is sure to go down in history.
In financial terms, the NFL and the officials union are reportedly battling over about $3 million annually in pension commitments, a drop in the bucket for a $9 billion organization. Like most employers, the NFL doesn’t want to deal with pensions anymore, the chief reason this has dragged out. There are also plenty of issues that the union is holding too hard a line also. It’s a labor dispute; no one is completely innocent.
But it’s the NFL dealing with the fallout. Does it really want another week of being a bad version of pro wrestling?
At least in the WWE, there is a satisfying ending to the script.
