NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will be at Ford Field Sunday when the Lions host the Vikings.
Goodell will meet with a group of Lions season ticket holders through a special invite for a question-and-answer session before the game.
Goodell meets regularly with NFL fans and has during his tenure as commissioner. Earlier this year, he held a similar fan forum with Bills fans prior to their Oct. 9 game against the Eagles.
During the lockout, he held a series of conference calls with various team’s season ticket holders, including the Lions.
Goodell was last at Ford Field in 2009 when he attended the Lions’ “Uncaged” public practice at the end of training camp.
In 2009, he took the opportunity to roam the concourse and met several Lions fans attending that practice. He also took questions from the media.
Lions president Tom Lewand, coach Jim Schwartz and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh visited Goodell in New York during the bye week to get clarification on a few rules and get a better understanding from the league on how those rules are interpreted by officials when it came to Suh.
Suh will no doubt be a hot topic in the Q/A session Sunday after he was suspended two-games by the NFL for kicking Packers center Evan Dietrich-Smith on Thanksgiving.
