NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says "workplace conduct" is the main focus in the investigation into allegations of improper behavior against Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre.

Goodell said Thursday during a live chat with fans on the league's website that the Favre situation is being treated seriously while facts in the case are being gathered. The commissioner's response came after one participant in the session on NFL.com argued that players have not been given "fair warning in the area of workplace conduct with women around."

Goodell also says the league is "working hard" on the development of a workplace conduct training program for all teams and expects to roll it out by the end of the season.
