Roger Goodell: Brett Favre will be treated same as other players

Have another doughnut

Although the investigation into allegations of improper behavior is continuing, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre shouldn't expect preferential treatment because of his profile and status in the NFL, Commissioner Roger Goodell said this morning on "Today."

"I'm not going to speculate on what we'd do," Goodell told Matt Lauer, "other than, you know, we apply the policy whether you're a high-profile player or not. To us it's the responsibility of playing in the game and the responsibility of what we have to to our fans."

Goodell reiterated that he has not met with Favre and that he won't comment on the investigation while it remains open.

"We're gathering all the facts, Matt. We want to make sure that we understand exactly what happened," Goodell said. "We also want to make sure that everybody in the NFL, whether you're a player, coach, commissioner, recognizes the responsibility that we all have to the public and to the people who follow our game. When we get the facts, we'll apply the personal conduct policy."

Goodell appeared on the show primarily to promote the NFL's Breast Cancer Awareness program.

Calling all thugs...

Who doesn't get nostalgic and all feel-goody about his/her team's glory years? The University of Miami football team had some great ones and Michael Irvin was all misty-eyed as he demanded a return to those days.

Irvin said the could use "one or two more thugs" on his radio show and later was called upon to clarify his remarks. It seems he meant hard-nosed leaders.

The hair club for men

How do you say 'you cannot be serious?'

If he wanted to, Roger Federer could say "you're the pits of the world" in four languages. The Swiss tennis champion, who also speaks German, French and English, is studying Mandarin while he's competing in the Shanghai Masters. Federer said he "likes languages in general." Yes. Languages are good.
