At the Fall Meeting in New York City today, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Dallas, Texas, home of the Cowboys, as the host city for the 2018 NFL Draft. Goodell stated, via the press release:
“This is the first time we will be hosting the Draft at a stadium complex. We are excited by that. I want to take moment to thank both Chicago and Philadelphia for really doing an extraordinary job to raise the bar. They have set a new standard for the Draft, created a new experience for our fans that was extraordinary, and we are confident that Dallas will raise that bar even further.”
As part of these meetings, the NFL also played host to the the commissioner of the NYPD, Jimmy O’Neill, and his chief of police, Terry Monahan. Goodell expressed support for the flag and the national anthem, as well as the players who are committed to working toward positive change in the country. The NFL reiterated its desire that players stand for the flag and national anthem, yet curiously refused comment on reports that players would be disciplined if they failed to do so.
