The NFL is "looking into having a second Hall of Fame game," a regular-season game that would be "designed to increase interest in the Hall of Fame," according to Peter King of THE MMQB. Pro Football HOF execs are "trying to boost attendance at times of the year other than Hall of Fame week, when the place is bursting with fans." Calling a regular-season game “The Hall of Fame Game" could "focus attention on the Hall, particularly if there are programs in the home city of the game designed to spur interest and tourism there." The game could be played on a "Thursday, Sunday or Monday night primetime game." The HOF also could send a "traveling collection of busts and memorabilia to the game site, or to a museum in that city" (MMQB.SI.com, 7/22).
