And you thought your PSL only got a seat in the stadium? Well, it turns out it grants you access to the Commissioner as well.

Yes, Roger Goodell will be available on a conference call with Giants season ticket holders on April 20 from 1 to 1:30 p.m. Bob Papa will moderate the call.

Goodell, who is in Minneapolis today entrenched in court-ordered mediation with the players in regard to the lockout, has already held two such conference calls with fans of the Browns and Dolphins. The Chargers and 49ers are also on Goodell’s schedule for such chats.

Goodell isn’t allowed to talk much about what exactly is being discussed in the mediation, but he did drop a few nuggets on the Browns fans, such as having the regular season schedule ready to be announced in about 10 days and the fact that the league has some contingency plans in place for the Super Bowl if the start of the regular season is delayed.

Of course, things could look very different in the labor landscape by the time Goodell checks in with Giants fans on Wednesday. So there’ll be a whole new set of questions for you to ask him. He'll no doubt earn his $1 that day.

Don’t let me down!
