Commissioner Goodell “innovates in increasingly competitive marketplace”

In a recent Los Angeles Times story, national NFL writer Sam Farmer put into context the decision by NFL clubs to award Super Bowl XLVIII to New York-New Jersey.

“In a larger sense, the league’s willingness to try something new…is reflective of Commissioner Roger Goodell’s push to be innovative in an increasingly competitive marketplace,” Farmer wrote.

Among the examples Farmer cited: moving the NFL Draft into prime time and stretching it over three days; making the Scouting Combine a television event; international regular-season games; renewed emphasis on player conduct and concussion studies; re-scheduling the Pro Bowl to the week before Super Bowl; and the modified sudden death postseason overtime rule.
