Letter from the commish
On behalf of the National Football League, I want to thank the fans and the city of Pittsburgh for helping us kick off the 2009 NFL season in such a memorable fashion.
Nearly 20 million Americans viewed the concert and the game, which ironically was the most-watched sporting event since the Steelers won the Super Bowl last February. Fans around the country were treated to the tremendous passion of Steeler Nation and a taste of your great city.
We could not have showcased these events without your city's support and hospitality. I want to thank Mayor (Luke) Ravenstahl for his leadership and also the numerous city workers who helped stage the week-long activities.
Roger Goodell
NFL Commissioner

I was surprised here that they talked so much about what a great game it was on talk radio. Usually they are nothing but homers.

Yes! Next year same time!

Great commish, why don't you alter the game a little more and take away what makes football great. The Hines Ward rule is just pathetic...

Goddell is the epitomy of a Corporate Capitalist Pig ..... meaning he puts revenue above everything and anything else.

The city of Pittsburgh doesn't need his letter thanking them for the viewership revenue.
