Player Safety Issues A High Priority At NFL Owners Meeting
The NFL annual meeting fully kicks of this morning in Palm Beach, Fla., with player safety and tweaks to some of the game’s rules and injured reserve policies topping the agenda. The league will discuss whether to allow casino advertising, and the NFL, as is usual at these meetings, will offer owners league financial projections. Stadium financing, the U.K. games and technology are also on the agenda. Several proposals are up for vote, including extending the playoff overtime rules to the regular season, and making all replay reviews decided in the booth and not by a field official.
The meeting is scheduled to end around noon on Wednesday.
