Super Bowl organizers not concerned about lockout
Earlier this week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent an e-mail to about 5,000 fans, writing that “if both sides give a little,” the two sides “can and will reach an agreement.”
The next day, Carolina owner Jerry Richardson told reporters he believed the two sides were not making much progress.
In Indy, where these words can resonate, committee members haven’t changed a thing.
“If there were a lockout and even if it was quite prolonged, we still would probably have a Super Bowl, so nothing changes what we’re doing,” Miles said. “So we expect to have our Super Bowl in February 2012 and we expect to be ready for that date.”
And instead of worrying about a labor stoppage they can’t control, Miles and host committee president Allison Melangton are focused on the things they can determine, such as getting volunteers ready to shovel snow, dealing with parking issues and getting observers to Dallas for next month’s Super Bowl.
