Goodell speaks up on Favre
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has finally made a statement on the Brett Favre incident.
Goodell said the league is focusing on “workplace conduct” as it probes alleged inappropriate behavior by Favre.
In a chat on NFL.com on Thursday, Goodell said the league continues in a fact-finding mode in the investigation but has identified a target point.
“Workplace conduct is the main focus,” Goodell said. “Each of these cases are looked at individually and we have to be thorough and fair. We also are working hard on the development of our workplace conduct training program for all teams. We are working with experts in the field and expect to roll it out to our teams by the end of the season.”
The league is investigating allegations that Favre sent inappropriate photos and voicemails to former New York Jets gameday host Jenn Sterger when he played for the team in 2008. Favre met with NFL security personnel on Tuesday, but declined to address what they spoke about..
