It's interesting, this is our fifth Super Bowl in the last 16 years, and every time we've had the privilege of going to the White House, a dozen of our players don't go. This is the first time it's gotten any media attention. Some of the players have the privilege of going (to the White House) in college because they're on national championship teams. Others have family commitments. But this is America. We're all free to do whatever's best for us. We're just privileged to be in a position to be going.

Two years ago, we won our fourth Super Bowl down in Arizona and I told our fans that was the sweetest one of all. But a lot has transpired over the last two years and I don't think that needs any explanation. I want to say to our fans, our brilliant coaching staff, our amazing players who were so spectacular, this is unequivocally the sweetest.

Actually, Bill and Hillary were at the next table, so it just shows you how things evolve, that you can never predict what's really going to happen. We think the incoming administration's policies are very pro-business, which is exciting to us. I think what's happened over the last decade (is) working families and poor people, their situation has worsened. I personally hope it will bring great help and sort of be a catalyst to the inner cities to get better jobs there.

He called me once a week, every week, to see how I was doing. He was just a great friend at a difficult time. I'll never forget that for the rest of my life. I think there are things we can do to improve our product, in terms of the number of breaks we have. I think the commissioner spoke about that yesterday at his press conference.

I think I've been very clear that the league really messed up the situation. In a way, it maybe helped us, because our team really came together, our fan base did, and here we're playing the biggest game that matters on Sunday, and we hope to close the order.

I told Arthur Blank this, he called me and said give me some advice and I said, don't let anyone ruin these two weeks. There will be a lot of things coming on and pressure and anyone who starts piercing the bubble of happiness get them out of your life.

I think our family was involved, or accused of being involved, in something that was mishandled and became inappropriate. Sometimes in a complicated situation in business, people start pointing fingers, and we want to assure everyone that we are together. When tough times come, there's nothing bad that happens that doesn't have good associated with it. In a way, that galvanized our team. For a number of reasons, all of you in this stadium understand how big this win was. And we have to go to Houston and win one more.

I feel privileged to be here in the Super Bowl city. There's a time and a place to talk about problems. I'm going to stay focused on being here. Arthur asked me for some advice about being in (the Super Bowl). I told him, Don't let anyone ruin these two weeks for you. Focus on how lucky we are to be here. Jealousy and envy are incredible diseases. We try to take it and turn it into something that's positive.

Sometimes, the league really messes up, and I think they really messed this up badly.

There's jealousy, there's envy, there's stupidity. Sometimes, life is unfair and you have to suck it up and move on and not use it as an excuse.

We try to create an environment where we have a system where we're not dependent on any one person or party.

I hope ... that we start to have a country that comes together and really puts America first the way that we talked about putting 'team first.

Everybody in our organization puts winning first. We have people check their ego in at the front door and do whatever they can do, whether it's the guy cutting the grass, or the young lady answering the switchboard, we're all putting 'team' first.

You have to step back and look at the big picture. Over the last decade, our ratings are up roughly 30 percent, while broadcast prime-time ratings are roughly down 30 percent.

Having zero interest rates has also affected the company, which has struggled to understand the impact of negative interest rates in other parts of the world.
