Goodell To Meet With Season Ticket Holders



    With the lockout in its 65th day, by far the longest work stoppage in the history of the league, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is planning on meeting with a number of season ticket holders around the league to discuss the lockout, and the ongoing negotiations between the owners and the NFL Players’ Association.

    Cowboys’ season ticket holders are among the Commissioner’s scheduled meetings, but no date for a meet-and-greet has been set.

    "We have a lot of great fans who aren't season ticket holders," Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said recently, per ESPN Dallas. "The message that he has is one of that he does ... understand the frustrations there. [We] certainly want to get back as quickly as we can to the more traditional offseason. And he's given that message."

    In a move somewhat similar to Goodell’s plan, Jones met with a number of sponsors to discuss the lockout on Monday, prior to the team’s annual golf outing.

    “I did visit with all of our group [Monday night] and expressed the incentive plan that I'm on," Jones said. "I didn't spend $1.2 billion to build a stadium and not have the Cowboys playing football in it this year. So we are doing and will continue to do everything we can to get a bargained agreement."
