Goodell expects Indy Super Bowl to go as planned

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he expects the Super Bowl in Indianapolis to be played as planned in February 2012.

Goodell answered reporters’ questions Saturday at the Colts’ new training camp site, Anderson University.

The NFL Players Association fears owners will lock out the players before next season and that a work stoppage could force postponement or cancellation of the league’s title game. That’s happened before in Major League Baseball and the National Hockey League.

But Goodell downplayed the possibility. He says he expects the game to go off as planned.
