NFL Season Preview: THE DAILY Offers Special Coverage
Published September 9, 2010
The NFL season kicks off tonight with the Super Bowl champion Saints hosting the Vikings on NBC, and THE DAILY today offers part one of our two-part NFL preview issue. The excitement of a new season comes as a possibly ominous cloud hangs over the league -- this could be the last year before the NFL's 23-year stretch of labor peace is broken. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell remains confident a new CBA will be reached with the NFLPA, but he admits once the current deal expires in March, things will become more difficult. Former NFL execs Andrew Brandt and Lou Imbriano discuss the labor situation and how teams need to focus on the in-stadium experience, while a panel of current team execs talk about the state of business for their franchises. Also in today's issue is the Jaguars' quest to improve ticket sales and keep the team in Jacksonville; the Jets claiming their appearance on HBO's "Hard Knocks" helped them sell PSLs; several NFL sponsors and licensees ramping up activation; and Yahoo Sports' annual ranking of the best and worst NFL owners.
