I would like to start by saying that my predecessor Paul Tagliabue did a wonderful job as commissioner. Revenues were higher then they have ever been before. Yet sadly he left me with a disaster on the professional conduct front. I am here to continually remind the fans that I have been, and will continue to, discipline players who can not act like normal adults.
I plan to use this forum as a way to communicate directly with you the fans and tell you my plans for how to continually improve the NFL.
I would like to start by announcing that the NFL will be spending $11.7 million over the next five years to work with the University of Cincinnati on an adult behavioral modification study. We believe that behavioral modification is the only way to ensure that our players act like normal adults and the NFL remains the dominant sport in this country.
