Sports 101: Five lessons from last week

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has not had much luck with getting his suspension of players to stick. Patriots fans hold a sign that refers to quarterback Tom Brady in the first half of an NFL preseason football game between the Patriots and the New York Giants on Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015, in Foxborough, Mass. Federal Judge Richard M. Berman overturned Goodell’s four-game suspension of Brady that morning.

In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

▪ Roger Goodell is the Teflon commissioner, just not in the way he’d like to be the Teflon commissioner.

▪ Just because Bruce Bochy is a great manager doesn’t mean he’s also a magician.

▪ The NFL preseason is at least one game too long.

▪ Cal is much better than Grambling State.

▪ Football isn’t the only sport susceptible to deflation issues.
