NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) - Here’s to hoping this isn’t Roger Goodell’s “Mission Accomplished” moment. The NFL Commissioner made an example of the New Orleans Saints for the organization’s involvement in the bounty scandal. From the front office to the locker room, no one was spared.
During a Thursday news conference, Goodell said that he is confident bounties will no longer be an issue, presumably because of the swift, severe sanctions levied against the Saints.
The actions taken by the league “speak very loudly,” he said via The Associated Press. “I heard that from our clubs, from our personnel. They recognize it’s not part of the game. It doesn’t need to be part of the game. And I don’t think it’s going to be an issue going forward.”
