Ok I didn't want to stray from International Week, but this was too good to be true. From Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback Interview with NFL commissioner Rodger Goodell:

SI.com: (what's the) Best piece of advice you got in your first year.

Goodell: Deal with issues directly. Face your detractors.

SI.com: Who'd it come from?

Goodell: Gary Bettman [the NHL commissioner]. He said, "Don't avoid the people who are saying things that you don't agree with." ... It really resonated with me. I've always tried to talk to people who have different perspectives.


Wait he said what?
