NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday that he wants to set guidelines for what’s acceptable behavior for trash talking in the buildup to a game.
Goodell said he appreciated different teams having different approaches, but wanted to stress that every team display “respect for the game.” The league office warned teams last week to cut down on their trash talking.
We’re guessing that Antonio Cromartie and Terrell Suggs may have caught Goodell’s attention in particular.
“There is also a line you don’t want to cross,” Goodell said. “I think we have to define that and don’t cross it. And that’s what we want to work on in the offseason.”
First rule: Don’t wear t-shirts with a middle finger on it?
