As noted by Deadspin, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell went on Reddit today to answer fan questions. What he did not know is that Vikings punter Chris Kluwe -- Loate on Reddit -- was going to ask him a question (it was even one that he picked to answer). Better yet, the question had a line from that Rick Astley song of Rickroll fame:

Dear Commissioner. I was curious about what you thought on the role of traumatic injury in the NFL, and the dichotomy between making the game safer versus giving the fans the hard hits and satiated bloodlust they so clearly desire. It seems to me that a lot of the popularity of the game boils down to the fact that there is that risk of injury, so I guess what I'm essentially asking is how are you going to balance that going forward without people feeling like you're never going to give them up, or never going to let them down?
