REPORTER: “Follow up on that quickly. When you watched the games last year as a fan, which I know is tough as commissioner, when you watched Colin, did he strike you as a guy that’s good enough to be in the league.”
GOODELL: “Well, Nick, one thing I do as commissioner, I don’t make those decisions. I’m not a football expert. I’m a huge fan. I have a role as commissioner also, but for me, I watch the games and enjoy it. I look the football, people make those decisions. And the reality is there’s 32 different decisions, right, and multiple decisions within an organization. So there’s always a dispute and an idea of who can play, who can’t play, who’s best for our system and not best for our system. Decisions should be made by those 32 teams.”
