    On the eve of the NFL draft, commissioner Roger Goodell promised to whack any team leaking confidential information about potential picks. That's not a bad idea for a league beset by enough legal trouble from current players that the face it presents to the public all too often is a mug shot.

    Goodell, to his credit, has wasted little time since taking office trying to polish the NFL's image. He responded to the problem he inherited -- some four dozen players being arrested in a calendar year -- by toughening up the personal-conduct policy and threatening to hold the teams responsible for players' transgressions.
    Man now the commish is going after teams as well. That's good, teams want the players to be honest then slam them for it. go figure.
