Last quote by Roger Goodell

It was the pace of the game. The 40-second clock is an example we put in after the point-after-touchdown and after the touchdowns and had a real impact. Centralizing replay and bringing the surface tablets to the sidelines so the official can see it, all that has sped up what we consider down time – time that's not, we don't believe, attractive to our fans. We're happy with it. It's only six weeks. We've got a long way to go. But we're continuing to see what we can do to keep pushing that because we believe that's good for the [fan] experience.feedback

Philadelphia raised the bar by taking the Draft to another level, and this new opportunity in Dallas will enable us to continue the event's evolution and grow it even further.

Our foremost concern is the welfare of Michael and his family. While we understand the Las Vegas police department will address this later this evening, the issues Michael has been raising deserve serious attention from all of our leaders in every community. We will support Michael and all NFL players in promoting mutual respect between law enforcement and the communities they loyally serve and fair and equal treatment under the law.feedback

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, and I let the football people make those decisions.feedback

Aug 23 2017

I think every one of our teams will do what is in their best interest to put a winning team on the field and to do what they really are hoping to do, which is create a franchise that is winning. And if they see that opportunity, they'll do that.feedback

Aug 16 2017

I was with the Jets a few weeks ago and one of the players was there there in the fan forum – actually, we were talking about this – and they were asked the same question. And they said, you know, there's a time and a place. That's what we all have to sort of understand, the responsibility of doing it at the right time and in right way. And what we see is a lot of players going into the community and really taking the platform they have and being active and creating dialogue and actually making really positive change. That's what I think is so important. Protest to progress is what I call it.feedback

Aug 14 2017

It's one of those things where we have to understand that there are people who have different viewpoints. It's something that I think everybody wants. The national anthem is a special moment for me. It's a point of pride. That is a really important moment but we also have to understand the other side -- that people do have rights, and we want to respect those.feedback

Aug 14 2017

That's what we all have to, sort of, understand -- the responsibility of doing it at the right time and in the right way. Protest to progress is what I call it. We all have to recognize that people want to see change. Let's go out and try to make that happen in a peaceful and an important way.feedback

Aug 14 2017

I don't think it's going to solve all our problems. These guys are human. They're going to make mistakes, but I do think it'll be a benefit. I think there's never been a better time to play football and a safer time to play football.feedback

Aug 14 2017

That's something we'd like to do.feedback

We're working with the NIH to figure out how to spend that effectively and do it to support research that's so badly needed.feedback

Aug 14 2017

We're not seeing that in our ticket sales. Obviously there could be fans who look at that and say, That's not something we want to do,' but we're not seeing that. Our ticket sales will be stronger than ever.feedback

Aug 14 2017

Those things are dictated by circumstances. We do everything we can to make sure that we're enforcing our policies and holding standards to the highest level. That's an unfortunate part of that, but that is what you do.feedback

Aug 11 2017

There has been no persuasive evidence presented on your behalf with respect to how [the accuser's] obvious injuries were incurred other than the conjecture based on the presence of some of her bruising which pre-dates your arrival.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - Marijuana

And it's not as simple as someone just wants to feel better after a game. We really want to help our players in that circumstance but I want to make sure that the negative consequences aren't something that is going to be something that we'll be held accountable for some years down the road.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - Marijuana

[W]e've been studying that through our advisors. To date, they haven't said, This is a change we think you should make that is in the best interest of the health and safety of our players.' If they do, we're certainly going to consider that. But to date, they haven't really said that. Listen, you're ingesting smoke, so that's not usually a very positive thing that people would say. It does have addictive nature. There are a lot of compounds in marijuana that may not be healthy for the players long-term. All of those things have to be considered.feedback

Apr 27 2017

They all put their own twist on it, raise the bar every time. It's a great experience for all of us. Clubs enjoy it, players enjoy it. ... Fans are ready for football again. I think it will happen this season. We're not going to make everyone full time, maybe five or six. There are casinos all over the country, all over the world. The concern is making sure we can protect the integrity of our game.feedback

Apr 27 2017

This started several years ago. We have seen that there is too much down time in the games. Too many breaks. When we have a great moment in our game, all of a sudden we go to a break. We want to get out of the way. We want to find other ways to reduce the down time -- speeding up replay by bringing it to the sideline, making announcements quicker.feedback

Apr 27 2017

C'mon, Philly, C'mon.feedback

Apr 17 2017

I'd like to meet with a group of players to try to get more input from them. We also wanted to do a little more work on just bringing clarity to the rule while allowing players more ability to express themselves and celebrate. We want to see that. We obviously want to put (in) any reasonable safeguards against taunting and acts that we think reflect poorly on all of us.feedback

Apr 13 2017

I was doing some work, trying to be distracted. Fortunately I'd just put my pants on.feedback

Apr 13 2017

Few men have contributed as much to the National Football League as Dan Rooney. He is one of the finest men in the history of our game it was a privilege to work alongside him for so many years. Dan's friendship and counsel were both inspiring and irreplaceable. My heart goes out to [Rooney's wife] Patricia, Art and the entire Rooney family on the loss of this extraordinary man.feedback

Apr 13 2017

Few men have contributed as much to the National Football League as Dan Rooney. A member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he was one of the finest men in the history of our game and it was a privilege to work alongside him for so many years.feedback

Apr 13 2017

Dan's dedication to the game, to the players and coaches, to his beloved Pittsburgh, and to Steelers fans everywhere was unparalleled. He was a role model and trusted colleague to commissioners since Bert Bell, countless NFL owners, and so many others in and out of the NFL. A voice of reason on a wide range of topics, including diversity and labor relations, Dan always had the league's best interests at heart. For my part, Dan's friendship and counsel were both inspiring and irreplaceable. My heart goes out to Patricia, Art, and the entire Rooney family on the loss of this extraordinary man.feedback

Apr 03 2017

I believe it was four in a very short period of time, maybe even a year. So that's an unfortunate circumstance. But it comes after a great deal of work to try to resolve the issues. We've been successful in keeping our franchises where they are. Unfortunately we weren't in this case. We want to continue to find ways to be creative and finding those solutions in those markets. But we also have stability for those teams now. Those teams, that wasn't something that just started in the last year or two. They've been struggling with stadiums for at least a decade in almost every one of those cases.feedback

Apr 03 2017

We did not change any of our gambling policies in the context of the Raiders' relocation. It wasn't necessary. The Raiders didn't ask us to do that. We don't see that – changing our current policies. Your broader question about continuing our efforts on gambling, that is a major risk for us. And I think we have to make sure that we continue to stay focused on making sure that everyone has full confidence that what you see on the field is not influenced by any outside factors. That's our number one concern. That goes to what I consider the integrity of the game. And we will not relent on that.feedback

Apr 03 2017

I haven't heard that from our clubs in any way that that's an issue. My experience in 35 years is that our clubs make independent evaluations of players. They work hard to try to improve their teams. If they think a player can help them improve their team, they're gonna do that.feedback

Mar 28 2017

We also want to do a little more work on just bringing clarity to the rule while allowing our players more ability to express themselves and celebrate. We want to see that. We obviously want to put in reasonable safeguards against taunting and acts that we think reflect poorly on obviously all of us. We believe we can do that.feedback

Mar 28 2017

The committee did quite a bit of work on that. We had some discussion this morning on that. I asked that we table it. I'd like to meet with a group of players to try to get some more input from them.feedback

Mar 28 2017

If I am invited back to Foxborough, I'll come. I have no doubt that if I wanted to come up to a Patriots game and I asked Mr. Kraft, he would welcome me back. That's up to him.feedback

Mar 27 2017

You know our goal is to have 32 stable franchises for each team and the league. We work very hard and never want to see the relocation of a franchise. We worked tirelessly over the last nine months or so on a solution. We needed to provide certainties and stability for the Raiders and the league.feedback

Mar 26 2017

There is no higher priority for the NFL than player health and safety and we continually seek to raise our standards and then surpass them. We sought a highly-credentialed physician and leader with experience as a clinician and researcher, and Dr. Sills' extensive experience caring for athletes makes him the right choice for this important position.feedback

Feb 04 2017

It's an opportunity to see what it's like in the NFL .... so you can discover, is there an opportunity for me in the NFL?feedback

Feb 03 2017

What we're trying to do is make our ... games as exciting and as action-packed as possible.feedback

Feb 01 2017

We have a disagreement about what occurred. We have been very transparent about what we think the violation was. We went through a lengthy process. We disagree about that. ... I'm not afraid of disagreement. And I don't think disagreement leads to distrust or hatred.feedback

Feb 01 2017

We're in a unique position to have an event on Sunday that will bring the world together.feedback

Feb 01 2017

I would tell you it's not awkward at all for me. We have a job to do. We do our job. We understand fans are loyal and passionate for their team and they object and don't like the outcome. That's not unusual for me.feedback

Feb 01 2017

We've always said there's a fine line between team sports gambling and the NFL. We want to protect the integrity of our game and that's something we'll always do.feedback

Feb 01 2017

I continue to respect and admire the Krafts.feedback

Feb 01 2017

You take your disagreements, you find a common place, and you move forward.feedback

Feb 01 2017

We are moving on from that. That's part of our history, but it's something that we are comfortable with the process, the decision. We're focusing on the game now. They are an extraordinary organization and they are extraordinary people, in my opinion. I'm not afraid of a disagreement and I don't think disagreement leads to distrust or hatred. It's a.feedback

Feb 01 2017 - Mexico

By having the Patriots and Raiders play in Mexico next year we hope that is a very positive experience to show we are reaching out to our fans in Mexico, reaching out to our Hispanic fans here in the United States.feedback

Feb 01 2017

We are aware of the conversations that are going on and as commissioner of the NFL I am singularly focused on the Super Bowl. We have a unique position to have an event on Sunday that will bring the world together. We feel good about what we're doing.feedback

Jan 25 2017

Not for a second. Tom Brady is one of the all-time greats; he has been for several years. He's on the precipice of at least potentially winning his fifth Super Bowl ring. He's an extraordinary player, a great performer and a surefire Hall of Famer. So it would be an honor. We have two great games and you've got to choose. And frankly, the focus should be on the players, the coaches and the great game. That's the way it was this weekend, and the way it should be.feedback

Jan 25 2017

We had two great games. I was in Boston two years ago for the divisional and the (conference) championship games. I try to get to as many stadiums as I can.feedback

Jan 19 2017

I think there are some real strengths to the Las Vegas market. It's clear the Las Vegas market has become a more diversified market, more broadly involved with entertainment, hosting big events. And there's a growth to the market.feedback

Jan 12 2017

Relocation is painful for teams and communities. It is especially painful for fans, and the fans in San Diego have given the Chargers strong and loyal support for more than 50 years, which makes it even more disappointing that we could not solve the stadium issue. As difficult as the news is for Charger fans, I know Dean Spanos and his family did everything they could to try to find a viable solution in San Diego.feedback

Jan 12 2017

The Chargers worked tirelessly this past year with local officials and community leaders on a ballot initiative that fell short on election day. That work - and the years of effort that preceded it - reflects our strongly held belief we always should do everything we can to keep a franchise in its community. That's why we have a deliberate and thoughtful process for making these decisions.feedback

Jan 12 2017

For more than a decade, the San Diego Chargers have worked diligently toward finding a local stadium solution, which all sides agreed was required.feedback

Dec 14 2016

The challenges of getting stadiums built is something that we've worked very hard on. We have not made great progress in Oakland and San Diego. There is not a stadium proposal on the table that we think addresses the long-term issues of the clubs and the communities.feedback

Dec 14 2016

This is healthy for us. We should continue to find ways to continue to extend that and make sure that we address things that we think we could make better.feedback

Dec 14 2016

We're evaluating every aspect of the game presentation on television, on media platforms and also in stadiums.feedback

Dec 14 2016

But ultimately it's for the community to decide. We have worked to try to get the referendum passed. And we'll continue to work with the local officials. But ultimately, they have to determine what it is they want to do in the community, what it is that can work for the community and the team.feedback

Dec 09 2016 - London

London is an amazing city. We have had tremendous support from our fans, from Mayor Khan and other government leaders and business partners, and we are looking forward to taking the next step in the UK by playing four games in London next season.feedback

Oct 22 2016

We take this issue incredibly seriously. ... When it happens we're not going to tolerate it. So we have some new information here, we'll evaluate that in the context of our policy and we'll take it from there.feedback

Oct 21 2016

We have asked repeatedly for those facts and the information that's been gathered by law enforcement both orally and in writing. And we weren't able to get access to it. So you have to make decisions on whatever information you have.feedback

Oct 20 2016

From my perspective, there clearly are shifts in society and the way people view gambling and the way you view even lotteries.feedback

Oct 19 2016

I don't think there is a single reason for it.feedback

Oct 19 2016

There clearly has been a society shift as far as how people view gambling. We are still very much opposed to legalized gambling on sports. We think that has an impact on the integrity of our game.feedback

Oct 19 2016

We're seeing what we structured five years ago working very well for all parties. It's leading to a safer game. We think it's leading to more long-term investments in the communities and stadiums ... and it has obviously led to increases in compensation.feedback

Oct 19 2016

We've talked about it, and ... that is something we might want to do.feedback
