NFL commissioner Roger Goodell spoke briefly about the unresolved issues surrounding the seat and weather fiasco at Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium. But he said he is focused on making sure future Super Bowls are staged with the highest standards.
“We continue to work through the issues we had here last year,” Goodell said during a press conference following the NFL owner’s winter meetings at the Four Seasons Resort in Irving. “Most specifically we are looking forward to make sure when we stage events as the NFL we do it with the highest standards and the fans that attend our games have the greatest experience. That is what people expect from the NFL. That is what we expect from ourselves.”
Goodell said the NFL expects to deliver on that promise starting at Super Bowl XLVI this year in Indianapolis.
Asked if he saw Cowboys Stadium and North Texas being in the running for a future Super Bowl, Goodell distanced himself from the decision, saying it would be up to the owners.
“That is for the ownership to decide,” Goodell said. It’s a great stadium. It’s a great community. So I presume they will make a bid in the future. The owners will decide at that point.”
