Goodell Discusses L.A. Expansion, Blackout Rule On "Costas Tonight"
Published February 3, 2012
Goodell also said the league’s blackout rule is not “antiquated.” He said, “Fans want to see the game on free television. We’re fortunate that we just extended our agreements with our broadcast partners. We’re the only league to stay on free television, and what we do is try to balance staying on free television with making sure our stadiums are full. We’ve been very aggressive in trying to price our seats accordingly to make sure they’re sold-out, to create policies where teams can use comp tickets for military and use football in other ways to get our stadiums full” (“Costas Tonight,” NBC Sports Network, 2/2).
