It’s April, which means that we’re getting more and more questions about the timing of the release of the NFL’s 2014 regular-season schedule.
In an effort to reduce the number of questions we’ll receive about the timing of the release of the 2014 regular-season schedule, we’ve posed the question to the league office.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tells PFT via email that the league currently is aiming for the “normal target” of mid-April. Aiello also said there’s currently no plan to release part of the schedule (e.g., the Thanksgiving games, the Week One primetime games).
Some (i.e., we) expected a possible delayed release of the schedule, given that the draft has been bumped back by two weeks. Usually, the schedule is released on a Tuesday night; our current guess is that it’ll be released on the 15th or 22nd.
Even though the 256 regular-season matchups already are known, merely answering the “when” will become the top sports story of the day, eclipsing actual game action by the MLB, NBA, and NHL.
So slaughter that, Mark Cuban.
