NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell: 'Same mistakes can never be repeated'

(AP) Commissioner Roger Goodell says that "over the past several weeks, we have seen all too much of the NFL doing wrong; that starts with me."



At a news conference Friday, Goodell made his first public statements in more than a week about the rash of NFL players involved in domestic violence.



The league has faced increasing criticism that it has not acted quickly or emphatically enough concerning the domestic abuse cases.



The commissioner is reiterating that he botched the handling of the Ray Rice case. He says that the "same mistakes can never be repeated."



Goodell and some NFL teams have been heavily criticized for lenient or delayed punishment of Rice, Adrian Peterson and other players involved in recent domestic violence cases
