Roger Goodell Fears Complacency

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said that despite last year's NFL Lockout, the league is stronger than ever. However, his biggest fear is complacency, and the NFL needs to stay on course and not let up with labor peace guaranteed for the next decade.

Thanks to an interview posted by Sports Radio Interviews, Goodell was asked a series of tough questions about how the league will continue its efforts to enhance the entertainment value for the fans, ensure the players safety and keep the NFL on free TV for years to come. He also was asked about expansion, the value of the Pro Bowl and the talk about an 18-game season.

Goodell was up front regarding expansion, saying:

"We are not considering expansion. We like the 32 teams. We think the scheduling is in a good place. We want to keep our teams where they are."
