Browns linebacker criticizes commissioner Goodell

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns linebacker Scott Fujita has criticized NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the way he has handled his suspension in the New Orleans Saints' bounty case.

Fujita had his three-game suspension reduced to one on Tuesday by Goodell, who sent the veteran a letter. Fujita says he's pleased Goodell acknowledged he never participated in the pay-for-hits program, but did not like the commissioner's ``condescending tone'' in a letter to the linebacker.

Fujita says Goodell's letter is ``neither accurate nor productive.'' Fujita adds the reduced suspension implies he is being suspended for ``failing to confront my former defensive coordinator for his inappropriate use of language.''

Fujita says it ``seems like an extremely desperate attempt to punish me. I also think it sets a dangerous precedent when players can be disciplined for not challenging the behavior of their superiors.

``This is an absolute abuse of the power that's been afforded to the commissioner.''
