Why Roger Goodell's hug to Deshaun Watson was an embarrassment to the NFL.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell hugs Deshaun Watson.

DeShawn Watson was called a predator by Goodell only a year ago.

Goodell said that during a press conference on August 9 last year, Watson was described as violent.

In his report, Robinson said that "Watson's pattern of conduct is more egregious than any the NFL has reviewed."

Watson was fined $5 million and banned for 11 matches.

Goodell's hug is one of the most underrated moments in his nearly two-decade tenure as commissioner of the league.

Goodell's response showed that he never understood or forgot the pain and damage caused by Watson.

In embracing Watson like this, Goodell is turning his back on all of Watson's victims.
