Goodell Doesn't Fault Redskins on Tickets
NEW YORK--NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday he doesn't fault the Washington Redskins for the revelation that some of their employees sold tickets to ticket brokers, which the club indicated was against team policy.
"Some of their employees did that," Goodell said. "I just want to make that clear. I don't think that was with the authorization of the Redskins.... Some of their employees did it, and they discovered it and took actions several months ago.... I support that they took actions on it. Dan [Snyder, the owner of the Redskins] made me aware of it several months ago."
Goodell also did not fault the Redskins for suing ticket holders who'd failed to fulfill longterm contracts.
"Those are decisions that every club is going to have to make and it's not unique to the Redskins," Goodell said. "There are other teams that have done that to enforce their contracts. Most of the time, as you know--it's not done every time--it's done with someone who's in a longterm contract in a suite or a club seat. I don't think it happens, if at all, on GA [general admission] seats, because they're not on longterm contracts."
