Transcript for Roger Goodell, Drew Brees talk NFL's Harvey relief efforts
I'm here now with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and we've seen some incredible efforts from NFL players and teams giving back to all those affected by hurricane Harvey and the work isn't done and, commissioner, thank you very much. You were just on a call. Yes. Who did you hear from? I heard from Susan who is in New Jersey who obviously went through this a couple of years ago and they all want to just give more and it's really inspiring. We have seen J.J. Watt and other players and seen the league come through and now we know there was supposed to be a game tonight between Houston and Dallas and that has been called off but the efforts are still continuing to help people. Well, they are and, you know, the Texans wanted to give back into their community, J.J. Wanted to obviously continue to work that he's doing there on the ground and all the players and the coaches and the team official, the owners, are all doing so much and tonight we'll have 15 other gapes and all of those games, each of those teams will be reaching out and trying to do what they can to try to support the people in the Texas gulf coast region. I don't want you not to take the call. That's okay. Will it roll over to someone. Hold on. Go to someone else. Someone picked it up? We don't want to miss that. We know the NFL foundation is doing its part matching some of the funds. Yes, we did a million dollars, the Texans have done $2 million and many of our individual clubs have also done significant contributions so we're proud of the efforts but people like J.J. Watt are there on the ground inspiring people to give back is something that makes us all proud if what does it mean to you personally. You asked us to be a part. You wanted to come here. What has this impact meant to you? Well, I think this is what makes us all proud as Americans that we have times when we get to help one another. There are people in need and there's so many people as we're hearing this morning and talking to who want to help. Yeah. And so for all of us this is a chance for us to give back and try to help people get through a very difficult time and come out on the better side. We'll help them.
