Goodell Says No Drop Dead Date for Season to be Scrapped


Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports there is no “drop-dead date” drawn up by league officials that would cancel the entire NFL season in the event that the current lockout extends into the regular season, commissioner Roger Goodell told Steelers season ticket holders this afternoon.

In his 17th such conference call held this spring with individual club’s season ticket holders, Goodell said the league and the teams are preparing to conduct a full 2011 football season but also are prepared if the lockout lasts into September or beyond.

“First, our objective is to have a full season, we scheduled a full season, we are planning for a full season and that’s our intent,” Goodell said. “If we’re not capable of doing that we will play as many games as possible and want to finish with the Super Bowl.”
