NEW YORK (AP) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is stressing the league's concerns about making its events safe and secure.
Speaking to the Associated Press Sports Editors on Friday, Goodell says the league is being responsive to all challenges, and it began ramping up security with the draft, which started Thursday night. ``It's always an imperative for us,'' Goodell says.
The league's initiatives carry over to the surrounding areas of stadiums for its game, Goodell says. Making tailgating safe in stadium parking lots also is of prime concern for the NFL as the league ``looks at it from the moment fans enter the parking lots to the time you leave.''
Goodell also expressed his disappointment that Los Angeles still doesn't have an NFL team - or a venue suitable to house it. But he says talks are ongoing with several potential sites.
