FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is scheduled to be in attendance Sunday at Gillette Stadium, as the Patriots sent season-ticket holders an announcement touting his presence for an intimate pre-game Q&A. Goodell regularly attends NFL games and has been to Gillette in the past.
With Goodell agreeing to a fan Q&A, 75 season-ticket holders (plus one guest) have a chance for a unique experience (the event is RSVP only and first-come, first-serve). There are no shortage of topics to discuss with Goodell.
The scheduled trip to New England comes at a time in which the league is investigating the New York Jets and their handling of strength coach Sal Alosi's tripping incident Sunday, as well as Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff publicly accusing the Patriots, which could be a violation of the league's integrity of the game policy. The league's labor situation also remains a hot topic.
