Roger Goodell Voices Support Of Expanded NFL Playoffs, But Shoots Down Reseeding
Published January 8, 2014
THIS & THAT: Goodell said of other cold-weather cities possibly hosting a Super Bowl, "I think this is obviously innovative and it's something new, but it's also unique because it's New York" (ESPNNY.com, 1/7). Goodell responded to the question of whether the NFL is ready for an openly gay player by saying, "Yes. There may be. I don't know" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 1/8). Goodell said that an expanded Wild Card round of the playoffs "could begin on Friday." But PRO FOOTBALL TALK's Mike Florio wrote it would "make more sense -- and more money -- to stick with the current structure on Saturday, add a night game on Sunday, and place the second extra game on Monday night, with the winner of the Monday night game guaranteed to play on the following Sunday in the divisional round" (PROFOOTBALLTALK.com, 1/7).
