NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the league will announce a rule change Monday to help combat “vulgar, disrespectful, and offensive language” from the female body.
“It’s something we’re going to announce that’s going to come in the coming days, but it’s not the final rule,” Goodell said Monday at a conference call with reporters.
“We have a lot of stuff in the pipeline that we’re looking forward to announcing soon.”
The rule change is expected to help curb “virulent, disrespectful” language from the women’s body in the future.
Goodell said the league wants to make sure it doesn’t get out of hand.
“If we do get it to the point where we don’t need to address it anymore, we can certainly move forward with that and move forward on addressing it,” Goodell added.
In August, NFL commissioner John Mara said he had concerns about the “vandalizing” of women’s bodies by women in sports.
He also said that he’d like to see women’s voices heard in player evaluations.
But he has yet to come to a decision on the rule change.
