Goodell talking big ahead of Super Bowl (Reuters)

Friday, January 31st, 2014
By Steve Keating NEW YORK (Reuters) - With gridiron's biggest game being staged on America's biggest stage, National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell used the spotlight on Friday to ponder some big plans. From the possibility of more games around the world to expanding the number of playoff teams and adding franchises, to courting more women and Hispanic fans, a relaxed Goodell laid out his blueprint for NFL's expansion during his annual pre-Super Bowl state of the league address. The Denver Broncos will take on the Seattle Seahawks in the first cold weather Super Bowl on Sunday at MetLife Stadium and Goodell joked that even the NFL could not control the weather as fluffy fake snow fell on the stage. But if nothing else, Mother Nature appears to be a Super Bowl fan with fears of a winter blizzard disrupting the NFL's showcase giving way to a promising forecast of chilly but clear conditions.

It wasn't the raucous NFL draft, but it was Hollywood's next best thing when Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary and director Ivan Reitman gathered Friday just down a hotel hallway from the Super Bowl's media center to chat up their new movie ''Draft Day,'' made with the full support of the league itself. Costner, an avid grid iron fan who's better known for his baseball movies, plays the general manager of the Cleveland Browns as he races the clock to acquire the No. 1 draft pick. Reitman and his cast shot at the real draft last year, held over three days at Radio City Music Hall, and included a cameo with the man himself, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
