I’m all about this idea!  Anything to have more football!! NFL commissioner Roger Goodell appeared Tuesday at the 92nd Street Y on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and talked the future of playoffs. Check out what he had to say…




In a wide-ranging interview Tuesday night, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said there’s no guarantee of another cold-weather Super Bowl and also mentioned the possibility of future playoffs with more wild-card teams and a schedule that could include games on Friday and Monday in addition to the traditional Saturday and Sunday setup.

Though New Jersey is hosting a Super Bowl next month, Goodell said other cold-weather sites like Philadelphia and Buffalo shouldn’t get their hopes up.

“I think this is obviously innovative and it’s something new, but it’s also unique because it’s New York,” Goodell said in an interview with former Associated Press White House correspondent Ben Feller at the 92nd St. Y. “This is a stage, we have two teams here. Every city can’t host a Super Bowl just because of the sheer enormity of this event. And it’s not just a football game. We have a week full of events, we probably have well over 150,000 coming in to the New York region for this event.
