With the lockout is threatening the 2011 NFL season and, thereby, Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, the league remains committed to its agreement with the Circle City.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said recently that the league will make good on its agreement to bring the largest sporting event in the United States to the city of Indianapolis--even if worse comes to worst, and next year’s edition of the Super Bowl is cancelled.
"I do feel strongly that we made a commitment to the city of Indianapolis," Goodell said, via USA Today. "We look forward to being there. We look forward to playing in Indianapolis and we'll stand behind that commitment."
Of course, worse has yet to come to worst. Goodell remains optimistic that the two sides will strike on an agreement prior to the season, and all that has been missed due to the lockout thus far are some semi-voluntary offseason workouts, which would have begun in March had it not been for the labor impasse.
As it stands, there’s no reason to panic over whether or not there will be a Super Bowl next February. But in any case, Indianapolis will have its big game.
