Roger Goodell Apologizes & Vows Change For NFL In Midst Of Domestic Violence Problem
After a nine day silence, Roger Goodell held a press conference today where he apologized and vowed there would be changes for the NFL in midst of the growing domestic violence problem.
I hate even typing his name, but Roger Goodell took blame in his poor decision making during the domestic violence issues plaguing the NFL. He vowed that there would be changes coming to the personal conduct policy for the league.
Here's what he had to say:
“I am not satisfied with the way we handled it,” he said. “I made a mistake. I am not satisfied with the process we went through. I am not satisfied with the conclusion.”
When asked about considering resigning, something that MANY people were calling for, he said this:
“I have not,” he said. “I am focused on doing my job. I understand when people are critical of my performance, but we have work to do. I am proud of the opportunity we have to make a difference and do the right thing. We’ve acknowledged that we need to make changes and now we have to get those changes going.”
He didn't go into detail about the personal conduct policy changes:
“We will make changes to the personal conduct policy,” he said. “I’m sure of that because we will make it happen. Nothing is off the table.”
“We got it with one phone call,” the reporter said. “You have a whole department.”
What do you think of Goodell's apology and promises?
