Chris Kluwe Rickrolled Roger Goodell In The Commissioner's Reddit Q&A

Roger Goodell briefly exposed himself to the internet masses on Reddit today, answering roughly nothing of interest and talking around anything remotely controversial. ("The blackout rule has served us well for several decades." "[Uniform regulations] were put in place in the 60s and have served us well.")

But Chris Kluwe, a Reddit regular himself, made it his mission to get the commish to answer one of his questions. And he couldn't help but sneak in one of the internet's most enduring memes. To everyone's surprise, Goodell answered it. To no one's surprise, Goodell missed the Rick Astley reference.


Also, you'll note that Goodell avoided actually answering the question. "The game of football has always been tough and always will be." Jackass.
