If you watched the Super Bowl, you probably caught one of the NFL ads touting the league's efforts to improve player safety.[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=helvetica, arial]

110 longways? I thought the proposal was lengthening it wide-ways?

Either way, DUMB. What purpose does that serve?

Wouldn't that just increase the number of injuries due to more hits cause of more plays? Player safety sure does sound important to Goodell (sarcasm)

can we get rid of this joke?

so if he extends the field 10 extra yards, that means the kickoff goes for 80yd; instead of extending the field, why don't you start at 20yd? then everything solves....

Perhaps he's thinking of expanding the endzone to make it easier to score touchdowns. I can really see that being the case.

The Owners would never approve this. It would mean major reconstruction of all stadiums. This is laughable.

Exactly. It would cost waaay too much money. Nearly every stadium would end up being rebuilt.
