Washington Redskins star cornerback Josh Norman isn’t a fan of of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

The Washington Post released an excerpt of ESPN’s profile on Norman, and he makes his feelings for Goodell crystal clear. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: NFL Owners Furious With Goodell — ‘It’s Time For A New Commissioner’)

The piece reads in part:

Spend any time around Norman and it’s easy to understand how he became one of the NFL’s most interesting, and polarizing, players. Riding in an Uber past the Eiffel Tower and during hours of idle conversation over the next two days, he offers thoughts on everything and everyone, including NFL commissioner Roger Goodell (“Horrible. He’s straight horrible.”), the league’s crackdown on big hits (“What happened to us? Society is so soft.”) and Washington’s nickname (“Redskins is not offensive to me. I’m part Native American on both my mom’s and my dad’s side. It’s kind of a funny thing, though. A redskin playing for the Redskins.”).

Norman isn’t the only anti-Goodell faction within the NFL. The commissioner has racked up plenty of enemies as he enforces his will on the league without any system of checks and balances. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Johnny Manziel Gets Tattoo Of AR-15 [PHOTOS])

Goodell’s decision to suspend New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady, for his alleged role in deflating footballs, has been a national news story for well over a year. (SLIDESHOW: 17 Sexy Photos Of TomBrady‘s Wife Gisele Bundchen)

It looks like the commissioner’s consolidation of power within the NFL has not gone unnoticed by the players.
