Owners didn’t discuss preseason, postseason changes this week

Here’s an intriguing (at least for me) footnote to the ownership meetings held last week in Washington.

Although NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell addressed with reporters after Tuesday’s meeting the possibility of expanding the postseason, the issue was not addressed during the meeting itself.

Per a league source, there was an expectation that the topic would be mentioned in the meeting.  It wasn’t.  There’s now an expectation that it will be discussed at a future meeting.

If the changes will be implemented by 2015, the issue needs to land on the agenda at an ownership meeting soon.  And then the NFL and the NFLPA will need to strike a deal that would allow extra playoff games to be played.  And then the broadcast contracts would have to be adjusted.

So, basically, a lot needs to happen before the playoffs can expand.  For starters, the owners need to at least have the topic raised during a meeting.

    The owners were too busy leaking player’s medical records.

    It’s going to be like the NBA. Regular season won’t mean anything.

    The owners want an 18 game season and now more playoffs? They will be playing football until March and draft in April. Wow. No time off for coaches and Super Bowl winners will feel the pain of a 20+ game season.

    They didn’t talk about them because they are terrible ideas that won’t make it past the NFLPA.
