Earlier this week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league won’t publish information from the league’s investigation into the Washington Football Team. That became a huge problem for a ton of people who feel like they have a lot to hide after the Jon Gruden controversy.
Goodell also said the NFL plans to cooperate with a request from Congress for more information.
Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill.) told Adam Longo of WUSA-TV, “I’m disturbed by what [Goodell] said” regarding the league’s refusal to release more information.
“I’m not really sure what it means to cooperate with us if he doesn’t want to share what we’ve requested,” Rep. Krishnamoorthi said.
It was just last week when Krishnamoorthi pressed the NFL to release “all documents and communications obtained in connection with the investigation into the WFT, its management, its owners, and any other matter relating to or resulting from the WFT investigation.”
Krishnamoorthi is so serious about getting those emails that he is now sending threats and giving Goodell and the league until November 4th to hand over all documents in the WFT investigation to Congress.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk suggested the NFL won’t give up the information “easily.”
“The league surely won’t give in so easily. It’s concealing a fairly significant piece of information. People throughout the league are buzzing about it, and speculating about what the league is hiding by insisting so fervently — and on such flimsy grounds — to keep the materials private.”
Florio said a league source told him the investigation “is way bigger than even you think.”
