Peter King of SI posted a column yesterday about Roger Goodell spending time in Afghanistan at Forward Operating Base Tillman.
That name may ring a bell. The base is named after Pat Tillman, the guy you may have heard of.

The former Arizona Cardinals defensive back whom the NFL continues to exploit with statues and tributes but has yet to offer very much help to the Tillman family.
Anyway, King talks shop with Goodell and never (not a single time) mentions whom FOB Tillman is named after.Â We count 4 mentions of the base.
Instead we are treated to a glowing report from the commish without a single mention of the guy who’s family the NFL seems to always ignore.
