Was excited to hear I was "picked" to attend this meeting with the Commish, it will be interesting to hear what he has to say in person
Anyone else hear from the Lions on this today?

No, I didn’t know it was by invitation.

I got the email and responded but between then and the time I was picked my schedule changed and I can't go. I told them that I no longer could make it and got a very pleasant thank you note for alerting them so that someone else could go....

I think the biggest for me is how he plans to grow revenue as much as 2 to 3 times like he has stated.That is a lofty goal, especially when the TV contract is locked in until 2021 (I think)
