Fans give NFL commish a wish list: No blackouts, more Super Bowls

NEW YORK — NFL fans want an end to blackouts and cheaper tickets for preseason games. They want to be online at the game. Fans up north are looking for more cold weather Super Bowls, and maybe even a chance to host the draft.

Commissioner Roger Goodell got all those suggestions and more during an hour-long question and answer session with fans from all 32 teams before the regular season opened Wednesday with the Giants hosting the Cowboys.

The fans asked repeatedly about issues tied to their experiences at the game.

Goodell says preseason is a big issue among fans, noting “I hear that almost No. 1.” He says “pretty much everything” is on the drawing board to either reduce preseason or make it more fan-friendly.
