    In response to TravisBean's comment:

    When I read through this list, I thought of 3 things:

    1. The Pats have four very logical suggestions as do the Eagles with their one.

    2. The Skins are so desperate to not be morons every season and suck, they are literally suggesting the most bizarre rule changes ever to try to accomplish being so sucky.

    3. The Colts suggestion screams arrogance and the ability to alter the game based on the construction of their own stadium, which harkens back to them pumping in crowd noise via the PA system back in the old RCA Dome.

    I love how the media just glosses over the Colts arrogance and hypocrisy as a franchise:

    Detailing rule changes on agenda March, 22, 2014 MAR 22 12:00 PM ET By Mike Reiss | ESPNBoston.com

    BOSTON TO ORLANDO -- We'll be en route to the NFL annual meeting, and the expectation is that we'll hear from Patriots owner Robert Kraft on Monday and head coach Bill Belichick on Tuesday. 

    This is also the time we often learn of teams earning compensatory draft picks, and the Patriots figure to be in that mix for a late-rounder this year. 

    As a primer of sorts, here is a look at most (but not all) of the rule proposals to be considered by teams, four of which have been proposed by the Patriots. 

    1. Move free kicks to the 40-yard line (proposed by  Washington Redskins). 

    2. Allow personal foul penalties to be subject to instant replay (Redskins). 

    3. Eliminate overtime in preseason games (Redskins). 

    4. Extend the uprights an additional 5 feet above the cross bar on both sides (proposed by New England Patriots). 

    5. Move the line of scrimmage on the point-after-attempt to the 25-yard line (Patriots). 

    6. Place fixed cameras on all boundary lines to ensure solid viewpoints on instant replay (Patriots). 

    7. Allow everything outside of scoring plays and turnovers to be challenged (Patriots). 

    8. Make rolling up on the side of a player's leg illegal (proposed by competition committee). 

    9. Allowing officials to communicate with officiating department during reviews (competition committee). 

    10. Expanding instant replay to include recovery of a loose ball in field of play (competition committee). 

    11. Allowing game clock to run after QB sack outside of 2-minute warning in both halves (competition committee). 

    12. Pass interference should be called  at any point beyond the line of scrimmage, not 1-yard and beyond the line of scrimmage which gives offense an unfair advantage (competition committee). 

    14. Increase the game-day roster limit to 49 players for Thursday games other than opening weekend (Redskins). 

    15. Raise the practice squad from eight players to 10 (Redskins). 

    16. Allow teams to trade players prior to the league year starting (Redskins). 

    17. Eliminate the roster cutdown from 90 to 75 (Redskins). 

    18. Allow more than one player to return from injured reserve during the season (Redskins). 

    19. Allow clubs to time and test up to 10 prospects that went to Combine at their NFL facility (proposed by Eagles). 

    20. Allowing a home team to open or close a roof or wall at halftime (proposed byIndianapolis Colts). 

    QUICK-HIT THOUGHTS: We'll be particularly interested in how the Patriots' proposals are received. It seems like a no-brainer to raise the goal-posts after what we saw in the  2012 game between the Patriots and Ravens. The only issue there would be cost. The same thought holds true for the proposal to put fixed cameras on boundary lines -- it's a no-brainer, just a matter of cost. ... It would be a major upset if the Patriots' proposal to allow everything but scoring plays and turnovers to be reviewed is passed, as that's the type of change that often takes more time for teams to accept. ... We'd also be surprised if the proposal to make the extra point a more difficult play was passed. That could be experimented with in the preseason. ... I'm also interested in the Redskins' proposal to allow teams to have 49 active players for Thursday games, but wonder if teams will view that as creating an unfair competitive advantage. ... In all, a lot of good topics to digest specific to the on-field product and roster construction.

    If they allow the dome to be opened / closed at half it has to be pre-determined before the game so it can be factored in the choice of taking or giving the kickoff or else obvious advantage for the few dome teams that have retractable roofs.

    For instance if the away team gets the ball after the half the home team can choose the roof to be open to add variability.

    That's how it is now. To change that DURING the game is cheating.  For them to even suggest to ability to cheat is outrageous.  The fact they don't see that proves their own arrogance as a franchise.  But, that is the same franchise that pumped in crowd noise like little wussies because their fans suck so bad and need a roof and help to make noise.  lol

    I laughed when that was the only suggestion they had, while almost all the others minus some of the Skins excuse-laden dumb ones, were very logical and good.



    It's probably so they can air the place out if the owner has bad booze breath and booze gaseousness, or to let it rain on him to keep him from passing out...

    I'm surprised the Colts didn't propose a rule saying if a team is 15-0 they must rest their players so as not to show the Colts up for being gutless when they had the shot at a perfect season.

    LOL!

    I still cannot believe they asked for a new rule, aka permission, to use their stadium to their own personal desires with how the game is going.

    Speechless.

    They build a wussy dome for football are afraid to welcome the elements 99% of the time and now want permission to adjust the roof in case they are winning or losing the game.

    The media should be all over this arrogance, but for some reason they love Irsay and doesn't call him on it.

     

     



    Just proof that it comes from ownership, not just management...it's the sort of thing I'd have expected from the old, fired GM and his worthless kid, not the new crew...so it has to be ownership....

    Not a great comparison.

    What BB effected both teams equally, for the entire game. 

    Under the Colt's proposal, it could be closed, the Colts build up a 20 point halftime lead...then open the roof in a cold, snowing December environmant and make it harder for both teams to score because they already have a lead.

    Or the other way around...the Colts, or another home/dome team, fall behind early with an open roof, then close it at halftime to make it as easy as possible for your guys to get back into it.

    A comparable would be BB asking if he could decide to flood the field at halftime...which, given the opportunity, I'm sure he would love to do, but isn't so insane as to ask for it outright.

    Russ - does your mother approve of you being such a dum bass on such a regular basis? 

    The stadium was not just built for football.  In fact, next weekend you'll enjoy watching the Kentucky / Louisville being played in the stadium.  The combine is in the stadium.  They have motocross in the winter in the stadium.  They use the stadium for convention space.  The stadium benefits the city, not just the team. 

    It is not built to be an outdoor stadium so if there is a threat of rain, for example, they must close the roof before the game, I am sure they'd like the opportunity to keep it open (enjoying the elements) and be able to close it if the that rain actually occurs. 

    Selfish, yes - for the benefit of fans.

    Or better yet- if the game starts with rain, but the weather system passes during the first half, perhaps they'd like to open it for the second half.

    Detailing rule changes on agenda March, 22, 2014 MAR 22 12:00 PM ET By Mike Reiss | ESPNBoston.com

    BOSTON TO ORLANDO -- We'll be en route to the NFL annual meeting, and the expectation is that we'll hear from Patriots owner Robert Kraft on Monday and head coach Bill Belichick on Tuesday. 

    This is also the time we often learn of teams earning compensatory draft picks, and the Patriots figure to be in that mix for a late-rounder this year. 

    As a primer of sorts, here is a look at most (but not all) of the rule proposals to be considered by teams, four of which have been proposed by the Patriots. 

    1. Move free kicks to the 40-yard line (proposed by  Washington Redskins). 

    2. Allow personal foul penalties to be subject to instant replay (Redskins). 

    3. Eliminate overtime in preseason games (Redskins). 

    4. Extend the uprights an additional 5 feet above the cross bar on both sides (proposed by New England Patriots). 

    5. Move the line of scrimmage on the point-after-attempt to the 25-yard line (Patriots). 

    6. Place fixed cameras on all boundary lines to ensure solid viewpoints on instant replay (Patriots). 

    7. Allow everything outside of scoring plays and turnovers to be challenged (Patriots). 

    8. Make rolling up on the side of a player's leg illegal (proposed by competition committee). 

    9. Allowing officials to communicate with officiating department during reviews (competition committee). 

    10. Expanding instant replay to include recovery of a loose ball in field of play (competition committee). 

    11. Allowing game clock to run after QB sack outside of 2-minute warning in both halves (competition committee). 

    12. Pass interference should be called  at any point beyond the line of scrimmage, not 1-yard and beyond the line of scrimmage which gives offense an unfair advantage (competition committee). 

    14. Increase the game-day roster limit to 49 players for Thursday games other than opening weekend (Redskins). 

    15. Raise the practice squad from eight players to 10 (Redskins). 

    16. Allow teams to trade players prior to the league year starting (Redskins). 

    17. Eliminate the roster cutdown from 90 to 75 (Redskins). 

    18. Allow more than one player to return from injured reserve during the season (Redskins). 

    19. Allow clubs to time and test up to 10 prospects that went to Combine at their NFL facility (proposed by Eagles). 

    20. Allowing a home team to open or close a roof or wall at halftime (proposed byIndianapolis Colts).

It seems like a no-brainer to raise the goal-posts after what we saw in the  2012 game between the Patriots and Ravens. The only issue there would be cost. The same thought holds true for the proposal to put fixed cameras on boundary lines -- it's a no-brainer, just a matter of cost. ... It would be a major upset if the Patriots' proposal to allow everything but scoring plays and turnovers to be reviewed is passed, as that's the type of change that often takes more time for teams to accept. ... We'd also be surprised if the proposal to make the extra point a more difficult play was passed. That could be experimented with in the preseason. ... I'm also interested in the Redskins' proposal to allow teams to have 49 active players for Thursday games, but wonder if teams will view that as creating an unfair competitive advantage. ... In all, a lot of good topics to digest specific to the on-field product and roster construction.

    When I read through this list, I thought of 3 things:

    1. The Pats have four very logical suggestions as do the Eagles with their one.

    2. The Skins are so desperate to not be morons every season and suck, they are literally suggesting the most bizarre rule changes ever to try to accomplish being so sucky.

    3. The Colts suggestion screams arrogance and the ability to alter the game based on the construction of their own stadium, which harkens back to them pumping in crowd noise via the PA system back in the old RCA Dome.

    Detailing rule changes on agenda March, 22, 2014 MAR 22 12:00 PM ET By Mike Reiss | ESPNBoston.com

    BOSTON TO ORLANDO -- We'll be en route to the NFL annual meeting, and the expectation is that we'll hear from Patriots owner Robert Kraft on Monday and head coach Bill Belichick on Tuesday. 

    This is also the time we often learn of teams earning compensatory draft picks, and the Patriots figure to be in that mix for a late-rounder this year. 

    As a primer of sorts, here is a look at most (but not all) of the rule proposals to be considered by teams, four of which have been proposed by the Patriots. 

    1. Move free kicks to the 40-yard line (proposed by  Washington Redskins). 

    2. Allow personal foul penalties to be subject to instant replay (Redskins). 

    3. Eliminate overtime in preseason games (Redskins). 

    4. Extend the uprights an additional 5 feet above the cross bar on both sides (proposed by New England Patriots). 

    5. Move the line of scrimmage on the point-after-attempt to the 25-yard line (Patriots). 

    6. Place fixed cameras on all boundary lines to ensure solid viewpoints on instant replay (Patriots). 

    7. Allow everything outside of scoring plays and turnovers to be challenged (Patriots). 

    8. Make rolling up on the side of a player's leg illegal (proposed by competition committee). 

    9. Allowing officials to communicate with officiating department during reviews (competition committee). 

    10. Expanding instant replay to include recovery of a loose ball in field of play (competition committee). 

    11. Allowing game clock to run after QB sack outside of 2-minute warning in both halves (competition committee). 

    12. Pass interference should be called  at any point beyond the line of scrimmage, not 1-yard and beyond the line of scrimmage which gives offense an unfair advantage (competition committee). 

    14. Increase the game-day roster limit to 49 players for Thursday games other than opening weekend (Redskins). 

    15. Raise the practice squad from eight players to 10 (Redskins). 

    16. Allow teams to trade players prior to the league year starting (Redskins).

    It is not built to be an outdoor stadium so if there is a threat of rain, for example, they must close the roof before the game, I am sure they'd like the opportunity to keep it open (enjoying the elements) and be able to close it if the that rain actually occurs. 

    Selfish, yes - for the benefit of fans. 



    Yeah, right.

    Or better yet- if the game starts with rain, but the weather system passes during the first half, perhaps they'd like to open it for the second half. 



    Perhaps they would be better off just keeping it closed because it would be to their best of interest and advantage to use the crowd noise to offset the other team advantage over them.

It seems like a no-brainer to raise the goal-posts after what we saw in the  2012 game between the Patriots and Ravens. The only issue there would be cost. The same thought holds true for the proposal to put fixed cameras on boundary lines -- it's a no-brainer, just a matter of cost. ... It would be a major upset if the Patriots' proposal to allow everything but scoring plays and turnovers to be reviewed is passed, as that's the type of change that often takes more time for teams to accept. ... We'd also be surprised if the proposal to make the extra point a more difficult play was passed. That could be experimented with in the preseason. ... I'm also interested in the Redskins' proposal to allow teams to have 49 active players for Thursday games, but wonder if teams will view that as creating an unfair competitive advantage. ... In all, a lot of good topics to digest specific to the on-field product and roster construction.

    In response to TravisBean's comment:

    When I read through this list, I thought of 3 things:

    1. The Pats have four very logical suggestions as do the Eagles with their one.

    2. The Skins are so desperate to not be morons every season and suck, they are literally suggesting the most bizarre rule changes ever to try to accomplish being so sucky.

    3. The Colts suggestion screams arrogance and the ability to alter the game based on the construction of their own stadium, which harkens back to them pumping in crowd noise via the PA system back in the old RCA Dome.

    I love how the media just glosses over the Colts arrogance and hypocrisy as a franchise:

    Detailing rule changes on agenda March, 22, 2014 MAR 22 12:00 PM ET By Mike Reiss | ESPNBoston.com

    BOSTON TO ORLANDO -- We'll be en route to the NFL annual meeting, and the expectation is that we'll hear from Patriots owner Robert Kraft on Monday and head coach Bill Belichick on Tuesday. 

    This is also the time we often learn of teams earning compensatory draft picks, and the Patriots figure to be in that mix for a late-rounder this year. 

    As a primer of sorts, here is a look at most (but not all) of the rule proposals to be considered by teams, four of which have been proposed by the Patriots. 

    1. Move free kicks to the 40-yard line (proposed by  Washington Redskins). 

    2. Allow personal foul penalties to be subject to instant replay (Redskins). 

    3. Eliminate overtime in preseason games (Redskins). 

    4. Extend the uprights an additional 5 feet above the cross bar on both sides (proposed by New England Patriots). 

    5. Move the line of scrimmage on the point-after-attempt to the 25-yard line (Patriots). 

    6. Place fixed cameras on all boundary lines to ensure solid viewpoints on instant replay (Patriots). 

    7. Allow everything outside of scoring plays and turnovers to be challenged (Patriots). 

    8. Make rolling up on the side of a player's leg illegal (proposed by competition committee). 

    9. Allowing officials to communicate with officiating department during reviews (competition committee). 

    10. Expanding instant replay to include recovery of a loose ball in field of play (competition committee). 

    11. Allowing game clock to run after QB sack outside of 2-minute warning in both halves (competition committee). 

    12. Pass interference should be called  at any point beyond the line of scrimmage, not 1-yard and beyond the line of scrimmage which gives offense an unfair advantage (competition committee). 

    14. Increase the game-day roster limit to 49 players for Thursday games other than opening weekend (Redskins). 

    15. Raise the practice squad from eight players to 10 (Redskins). 

    16. Allow teams to trade players prior to the league year starting (Redskins). 

    17. Eliminate the roster cutdown from 90 to 75 (Redskins). 

    18. Allow more than one player to return from injured reserve during the season (Redskins). 

    19. Allow clubs to time and test up to 10 prospects that went to Combine at their NFL facility (proposed by Eagles). 

    20. Allowing a home team to open or close a roof or wall at halftime (proposed byIndianapolis Colts).

    On a side note....  don't you just feel that "dome" teams are spoiled to always play in pristine conditions while outdoor, open air teams just slug it out regardless of the weather and never use weather as an excuse?
