2013 ANNUAL LEAGUE MEETING PRESS CONFERENCE

THE BILTMORE, PHOENIX, ARIZ.

 March 20, 2013

Opening statement:

Goodell: We finished our session this morning a little bit in advance. We only had Competition Committee matters this morning.  (Rams head coach and Competition Committee member) Jeff Fisher is here to go through some of the rule changes that we passed.

As you know, this meeting is primarily about evaluating our rules both from a safety standpoint and what we think we can do to improve and make the game better.  We made some very significant progress on both of those fronts, which Jeff and (Falcons president & CEO and Competition Committee chairman) Rich McKay will be here to discuss shortly.

We also had a productive session as it relates to other matters, particularly stadium related.  We have some stadium projects that are moving along – Minnesota and Buffalo – that are all very positive.

As you all know, Monday we spent a fair amount of time with a group of fans who demonstrated their passion and gave us quite a bit of feedback.  It was a great session for us.

We had a good opportunity over the last few days to get everybody on the same page of what are our priorities, what are our challenges and what are our strategies going forward.  The meetings were extremely successful and positive.
