Roger Goodell rarely if ever opens up about his personal life, those these comments that he made to the New York Times about Donald Trump are interesting at the core.
Goodell was referring to the audio and video recording that surfaced last month of President elect Trump bragging about grabbing women by the p*ssy.
Goodell told guests at The New York Times’ DealBook conference that those type of comments would make the NFL’s goal of reducing domestic violence incidents within the league more difficult. He also revealed that it caused him strife at home.
“It makes my job harder at home too,” Goodell said at the Times’ DealBook conference on Thursday. “I have twin daughters and a wife so I have to explain that to them. So yes, on that front. Does it make it harder publicly? Listen, I think our country has to have more respect for one another, and we have to unite.”
I don’t know why the commissioner would have trouble explaining Trump’s behavior, seeing as how the players in his league play by the same code of conduct.
