DALLAS — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a taped deposition played for jurors this week that the league was responsible for problems that left hundreds of fans without seats or with restricted views during the 2011 Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium.
“I’m not blaming others. I’m blaming ourselves. I’m accepting responsibility,” Goodell said in the deposition, which was recorded in 2013. “It is our event. It is our responsibility to produce it in a positive way and make sure we deliver on our promise.”
