NFL committee to decide whether to tweak interference rule

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) — NFL owners gave the competition committee the go-ahead Wednesday to decide whether to refine the new rule allowing replay challenges involving pass interference.

The proposed tweak would take the decision on whether to review in the final two minutes of each half out of the hands of the officials. Reviews in the final two minutes would instead require a coach’s challenge.

Owners voted to hold the NFL draft in Cleveland in 2021, the 75th anniversary of the Browns, and in Kansas City in 2023. The league said it delayed choosing a site for 2022 because about 20 cities are interested in hosting that year.

Regarding pass interference, the league fears too many stoppages of play in the closing minutes if those reviews are left up to the officials. A decision on whether to require a coach’s challenge in the final two minutes will come after the competition committee consults with coaches next month.

Owners voted in March to allow pass interference calls or non-calls to be challenged by coaches and reviewed via replay as a one-year experiment. Under the rule adopted then, in the final two minutes only officials in the booth can stop the game for reviews involving pass interference, as is the case with other reviewable plays.

The competition committee may also exempt Hail Mary passes so they’re not reviewable. That change would require coming up with a formal definition of a Hail Mary.

“We really don’t want our games to end on a review,” said Atlanta Falcons president and CEO Rich McKay, a member of the committee.

A proposed rule change requiring each team to have one possession in overtime was tabled for lack of support. The change was pushed by the Chiefs, who lost last season’s AFC championship game without getting the ball in overtime because the Patriots won the toss, received the kickoff and scored a touchdown.

There’s some support among owners to change the overtime rule in the postseason only, football operations chief Troy Vincent said. The league is expected to revisit the subject next year.

The 2021 draft is the latest major sports event landed by Cleveland.
“It’s a big, big deal for our area, one of the founding areas of the NFL,” Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said.

Cleveland will also host this year’s MLB All-Star Game, the 2022 NBA All-Star Game and the 2024 NCAA Women’s Final Four.

Las Vegas hosts next year’s NFL draft.

On other issues:

—Owners voted to eliminate the so-called Oklahoma drill and similar drills that involve especially violent one-on-one contact and have historically been popular early in training camp. A study found one of every five concussions during an NFL season occurs in the first two weeks of camp.

“We saw a certain area at the beginning of training camp where we felt could make greater improvement,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “and I think removing some of these drills across all 32 teams is the right way to do that. We also believe by prohibiting some of these drills, that will happen at the college and high school and youth football levels, which we believe should happen.”

The ban follows an examination of data and practice video with coaches, general managers and former players.

“I think some of the coaches were a little defensive at the start, and probably the biggest advocates at the end,” McKay said.

—Marijuana for pain management will be studied by a new committee of medical experts appointed by the league and players union as part of an effort to address player health. Marijuana is banned by the league.

“There are a lot of alternative pain medications and treatments,” Goodell said. “Those are the types of things we want this committee to focus on. One of those is what role medical marijuana can have.”

—Goodell said the NFL will wait to decide the status of suspended Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill, who is the subject of a domestic violence investigation. “We will not interfere with that,” Goodell said. “We will obviously be cooperative with whatever the court wants. We are prepared to have an interview whenever we have the permission to do so, and then we’ll make a determination.”

—League officials also announced that the NFL’s annual scouting combine will continue to be held in Indianapolis, though it will be moving many of the workout drills to the afternoon and prime time in hopes of expanding the television audience. Those drills have traditionally been held in the morning and afternoon.

Colts owner Jim Irsay wrote on Twitter that after 2021, there will be a series of one-year options to keep the combine in Indy.

—Sunday divisional playoff games will now start at 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. EST to match the starting times for the conference title games the next Sunday. The idea is to increase ratings.

— Assistant and positional coaches in the NFL and college have been invited to attend a coaching summit June 24-25 in Atlanta as part of an effort to strengthen the coaching and personnel development pipeline.

The biggest problem I have is that coaches are now allowed to challenge pass interference, but not on hailmarys specifically?! WTF?! A PI is a PI, no matter what f'n offensive play is called! Total b.s.

Vince at work:

The XFL will put 44 players on the field at the same time for their overtime rules. Both teams will basically try for 2-point conversions on each side of the field simutanously in a two out of three falls bout. Not messin' with ya. Surprisingly, this gimmick is getting praised by a lot of talking heads, including Mike Florio and the USA Today clowns.

Bears had a 100 years kickoff celebration with a ton of their alumni. Emery Moorehead came out and said he talked to the NFL reps and we might have a HOF class of upwards of 17 people next year to make up for all the old timers who have been left out.

The last ever Oakland Raiders training camp has been picked to be featured on ‘Hard Knocks’ this season.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.foxsports.com/nfl/story/raiders-picked-to-be-featured-on-hard-knocks-061119%3famp=true



ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden will be a TV star once again.

HBO announced Tuesday that the Raiders will be featured on the network’s “Hard Knocks” show in training camp this summer that gives a behind-the-scenes look at an NFL team.

Gruden spent nine seasons as the lead analyst on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” before returning to the sideline for a second stint as Raiders coach last year. Now he will likely be a star of the 14th edition of this reality show.

“Everybody wants to be a Raider,” owner Mark Davis said. “Now they’ll find out what it takes to become one.”

The Raiders made several high-profile additions this offseason that made them an attractive team for the show in their final scheduled season in Oakland before a planned move to Las Vegas.

They hired another former TV analyst as general manager in Mike Mayock, traded for big-play receiver Antonio Brown and signed controversial free agents Vontaze Burfict and Richie Incognito. Oakland also had three first-round draft picks in Clelin Ferrell, Josh Jacobs and Johnathan Abram, as well as quarterback Derek Carr.

Gruden had expressed reservations about being on the show but the Raiders were one of five teams who could be forced to do the show because they didn’t make the playoffs the past two seasons, didn’t have a new coach and hadn’t done the show the past 10 years.

NFL Films will send a 30-person crew to training camp in Napa to shoot more than 1,750 hours of footage for the series with access to meeting rooms, training rooms, living quarters and practice fields.

“They do a really good job of staying out of your way,” said defensive coordinator Paul Guenther, who was on the staff in Cincinnati when the Bengals were featured on the show.

“You can see, kind of, what’s going to be on the show. I think the positive thing is you find out a lot about your team and the coaches on the staff that, ‘Hey, when the camera is on you are you going to be a different guy or a different player or if you’re not.’ Because really after the third day, you don’t notice, you’re so used to having them around that you just go about your business.”

The other teams that were eligible were San Francisco, Washington, Detroit and the New York Giants.

The first of five episodes will air Aug. 6.

Raiders will also be playing their week 3 pre season game against the Green Bay Packers in my home town of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
I wonder if this city can get a sell out like no other Canadian city has been able to when hosting NFL teams.

I know it will never happen in my life time, because the inmates are running the prison, but not only do I agree with this, I had this same idea when I was 12 years old and fantasy booking the NFL, no bullshit:

NFL owners propose an 18-game schedule and limit of 16 games

Monday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the 49ers and kicker Robbie Gould had reached an agreement on a two-year, $10.5 million contract that is fully guaranteed. This also includes an option clause that turns the deal into a four-year, $19 million deal that includes $15 million guaranteed.
