Commissioner Goodell Statement on Detroit Lions

Football NFL Sports

Martha Ford has led the Lions with skill and grace for the past six seasons.  I have appreciated her business insights, her love of the game, her deep commitment to the NFL, and her personal kindness.  We are pleased that the Ford family will continue to own and operate this historic franchise.  Sheila Hamp has become increasingly involved in team and league affairs over the past several years and we look forward to working with her and the rest of the club’s executive team.
