On this special episode of The Long Game with LZ & Leitch, LZ and Will dissect NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s much anticipated “State of the League” press conference in the wake of former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores’ lawsuit against the league for allegedly racist hiring practices. They explain why Goodell is a PR person’s dream, examining everything from his hand gestures to his facial expressions. They also identify the question that made him noticeably uncomfortable and the answer that was the most insulting, concluding that the NFL is not yet ready for meaningful change.
