NEW YORK - There hasn't been much football talk at the NFL owners' meetings Wednesday.

Instead, the focus has been on the personal conduct policy, and on educating everyone involved in the league about domestic violence.

After approving the sale of the Buffalo Bills to Terry and Kim Pegula in the morning, the owners listened to a presentation on domestic violence that included a video by a former player appealing for recognition and action. They also began intense discussions on potential changes to the personal conduct policy and how to discipline players, executives, and even their peers, should they make missteps.

There have been plenty such mistakes recently, most notably the Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson abuse cases. In the midst of a maelstrom over how the league has handled those and other incidents, Commissioner Roger Goodell has asked for a re-examination of the policy.
