NEW ORLEANS (AP) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says New Orleans was a ``terrific'' Super Bowl host and that the Superdome power outage that delayed the game for 34 minutes will have no effect on the city's future bids to host the league's championship.
Goodell says, ``The most important thing is to make sure people understand it was a fantastic week,'' and that it ``will be remembered as one of the great Super Bowl weeks.''
New Orleans has now hosted 10 Super Bowls. Officials have said they will bid to host an 11th in 2018 to coincide with the 300th anniversary of the city's founding.
Goodell says the outage is not of great concern going forward because it is ``fixable,'' and the league will look forward to evaluating New Orleans' next Super Bowl bid.
