OWNERS REACT TO POSSIBLE NFL PLAYOFF CHANGE
Published February 6, 1995
In the wake of last week's report the NFL may consider a change to its playoff format, writes Don Pierson of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. "Why would Fox forfeit a Dallas-San Francisco NFC title game in order to benefit a possible Dallas-San Francisco Super Bowl for ABC? The answer is obvious. So unless a radical change in bidding for rights fees occurs, there is no chance of a change in playoff format." TV considerations aside, "there appears to be virtually no conviction among owners or Commissioner Paul Tagliabue that any change is necessary." Bengals President Mike Brown: "I'm for the traditional format." Giants Owner Wellington Mara: "I'm happy with the current setup" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 2/5). Bills Owner Ralph Wilson: "I've never heard of any such proposal, and it has no chance. It will never happen" (Will McDonough, BOSTON GLOBE, 2/5).
