NFL commissioner Roger Goodell plans to announce the league’s 2011 regular season schedule soon, but has said that the ongoing labor impasse could affect the Super Bowl. Too far, Mr. Goodell, too far.
“We prefer not to do it, but you always have that option,” Goodell said. “Right now, we want to play the sechedule as its laid out.”
The game is scheduled to be played Feb. 5 in Indianapolis, but Goodell says it could be moved back a week to Feb. 12, making for the most-forgotten Valentine’s Day ever. It’s already weird enough that the league plays its final game in early February now.
He also said the NFL could remove the traditional bye week between conference championship games and the Super Bowl, which would infringe on the Pro Bowl’s turf. Think of the Pro Bowl, Minneapolis mediators.
