NFL’s Roger Goodell: ‘It’s My Job, Obviously, To Admit Mistakes’

‘This isn’t a sports issue ... this is a societal issue’

Roger Goodell addresses media (ESPN)

Commissioner Roger Goodell estimated that five of the nine and a half hours of NFL owners meetings Wednesday were focused on the league's personal conduct policy and issues of "social responsibility."

The league plans to announce an overhauled personal conduct policy at some point between now and the Super Bowl, and the changes could include a diminished role for the commissioner himself in the process.

"As I have said, everything is on the table," Goodell said at the conclusion of the meetings at the Conrad Hotel in lower Manhattan. "We've been debating internally for well over a year whether there's a better process. At the same time, when something affects the integrity of the game, I think it's important for the commissioner to retain that authority."
