Roger Goodell says the integrity of the game is the most important thing

Goodell says he never asked the Patriots to suspend their employees. He says the Patriots did it themselves.

Goodell says the integrity of the game is more important than anything

Roger Goodell the National Football League commissioner spoke to the Canton Repository’s Todd Parker and talked about Tom Brady’s legacy. Goodell said the integrity is more important than anything right now. 

“The integrity of the game is the most important thing,” Goodell said. “The integrity of the game is something we will always protect. The rules apply to everybody. That is my job in particular, to make sure everyone from our players to our coach, to our fans and our partners, that they all recognize we’re going to play by these sets of rules, and that’s part of our values and standards.”

As for Brady’s appeal, Goodell declined to comment.

“Listen, he’s a great player and he’s a great young man,” Goodell said. “We issued the decision just last week. We’re in the midst of litigation to … ensure that that’s enforced the way we ruled on that, after a long process that is established in our collective bargaining agreement. That’s something we’ll play through.”
