09:32 AM ET 07.04 | NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell plans to hit several training camps this summer, traveling between them with John Madden on his "Madden Cruiser" bus. The trip is still in the planning stages. It was Goodell who proposed the idea to Madden, now a special adviser to the commissioner, but the Hall of Fame coach instantly took to the plan.

I don't know what would be worse, being stuck on a bus with Madden for a month or stuck on a bus with Goodall for a month. They should make Big Ben drive. That would teach him to keep the weasel in the cage.

Hope Madden brings plenty of Tinactin for the trip.

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends.

Good point, any player who goes afoul of Goodell's conduct policy should have to drive the Madden Cruiser for a week, while being lectured by Goodell and Madden on how it's a privilege to play in the NFL, not a right.

Come on, man. I love Madden. He knows his football and puts some personality into his analysis. He's a hell of a lot better than that boob Matt Millen or jive-talking Stuart Scott. Additionally, I love what Goodell is doing to clean up the league.

Hey FJM and Stu. I always celebrate the 4th and whatever other American Holidays I can talk people into. I even take American Thanksgiving off work because there's usually some kind of sporting events televised that day.

John Madden was a great coach, great commentator and is a great good will ambassador.

I agree 100%. And, his name is on a damn fine video game.

A training camp tour, eh? Think they'll see Favre when they hit the Vikings camp?

I like my sporting event a little dirty. Take any group of 1700 high strung athletes, be they greyhounds, race horses or Japanese fighting beetles your going to have a few that will not behave in the paddock. After we are only animals, civilized people wouldn't watch football.
