“‘And the example it is setting right now is simply unacceptable. New leadership must come in with a specific charge to transform the culture of violence against women that pervades the NFL. That’s the only way to restore honor …'” Look, if they’re serious about this, it isn’t the NFL that they’ve gotta focus on. If they’re really serious about this, they’ve gotta focus on… (chuckling)
