During his annual news conference two days before the Super Bowl, Goodell also said Friday he wants a “new generation” of the Rooney Rule because “we didn’t have the outcomes we wanted” when none of 15 recent coach and general manager jobs were given to a minority candidate.
Goodell hopes and expects testing for human growth hormone to start next season, even though the league and the players’ union are still at an impasse after 18 months of back-and-forth.
He vowed to be “relentless” about keeping pay-for-pain bounties out of the game.
