The headline grabber in Tuesday’s initial press conference for the New York/New Jersey Super Bowl came from the presence of a snowflake in the host committee’s official logo. But some real news also came from the event, as reported by Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Journal.
Per Kaplan, Goodell said after the event that he expects the NFL to stage two overseas regular-season games in 2012.
Kaplan expects both of those games to be played in London.
The challenge will be to find two teams willing to give up home games. Look for the teams having the biggest trouble selling tickets to be the prime candidates to play there.
Next month, the Bucs will host the Bears at Wembley Stadium. It will be Tampa’s second game there in three years.
