LOWELL, Mass. — NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the success of the 2014 Super Bowl slated for Meadowlands Stadium will determine whether more championships are played at undomed cold-weather sites.
Goodell spoke at commencement ceremonies Saturday for the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where he accepted an honorary doctorate for his father, the late Sen. Charles E. Goodell of New York.
The commissioner was introduced by Robert Kraft and stood with the New England owner after the ceremony. The Patriots play outside at Gillette Stadium.
On Tuesday, the league awarded the 2014 championship to the new $1.6 billion home of the Jets and Giants.
Kraft, who supported the decision, said "the elements should be part of the game."
