National Football League
Rules proposal passes on 28-4 vote

The NFL owners voted to change an element in the overtime rule, giving the team that loses the coin toss at the start of overtime to get a possession if the coin-toss winning team scores a field goal with the first possession.

The proposal passed 28-4. As it is written, the rules change applies just for the postseason, but the owners also decided to discuss adopting the changes for the regular season at their next meeting, in May in Dallas.

(And remember the draft is in a few weeks. Have any favorites that might be drafted? )

Just a heads up about the draft this week...

Quote:
Offensive tackles look like hot commodities in the first 10 picks. Rams probably will select Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford with the No. 1 choice.

Roethlisberger suspended for six games

The NFL suspended Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the first six games of next season for violating the league's personal conduct policy, the league announced Wednesday.

(Interesting that Pete Carroll now with Seattle didn't pick the safety he coached at USC with his second pick... )

Lockout looks inevitable.

When DeMaurice Smith was elected president of the NFLPA in March 2009, there was a pronounced surprise that the replacement for the late Gene Upshaw wasn't an ex-player but a former U.S. attorney. Now a little more than a year into his tenure, Smith is preparing for a lockout when the CBA expires after next season.

Titans sue Lane Kiffin, USC for poaching assistant

On the other hand, I wonder how long Kiffin will be at USC? He's not making any friends yet...

This will be an interesting soap opera...

Bengals reach deal with TO

Quote:
A year after they were featured on HBO's "Hard Knocks," the Bengals have scripted their own reality show.

T.O. and Ocho. Two self-conscious stars, one NFL team.

How will they fit? How will it work? Which receiver will provide most of the drama?
