CHANGING THE FOCUS OF LEAGUE OFFICIALS: Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio noted there has been "so much enhancement over the years" regarding security inside NFL stadiums, but Monday's bombings "should put a greater focus on the things that can go on outside the stadium.” There needs to be a "greater sensitivity now about where people congregate while trying to get into the stadium, tailgates." Florio: "It’s going to require everyone to be more sensitive to their surroundings.” However, at a time when the NFL is "very concerned about making sure as many people as possible go to games instead of staying home, this is the kind of thing that could cause more people to choose to stay home and watch games on TV” (“PFT,” NBC Sports Network, 4/16).
