    I can't even begin to describe just how stupid this plan is, so I'll just let the smilies do it.

    Really stupid the nfl needs to expand the 53 man roster to about 62 and this would fix many of the problems. The kickoff needs to stay next thing we are going to do away with tackling and get the flags out!

    Goodell needs to add the Spot Pass on kickoffs.

    Remember playing backyard football and, if you caught a kickoff and didn't run, you could shout "spot pass" and make a forward pass?

    Why doesn't Goodell just make the players run with hula hoops? If someone touches your hoop, you get 15-yard penalty...

    3 or 4 of those and you can just walk on in for a TD, wouldn't even have to get tackled anymore.

    I propose a plan from the opposite side of the spectrum. Instead of the ProBowl, each team in the league picks one man to represent them, 16 men on each side of the field for AFC and NFC. Ball is spotted on the 50-yard line, and they have a rousing game of smear-the-queer. First man to score twice wins the game.

    Oh, and no helmets, pads or any other Nancy-crap.

    Must be played with 1.5" cleats on natural turf, pre-irrigated to a depth of .5" one hour before gametime.

    Wiffle-bats optional.

    At this rate the NFL might as well have every team put up a Jerry Jones big screen overhanging at midfield and wireless internet. Then at midfield let the players line up and sit down at a table with either xbox 360s or ps3s (probably ps3 since the nfl wouldn't want to pay for online gaming) and just let the starters pick themselves on Madden and play video NFL from now on. If a player gets injured or subbed then the sub player comes in and sit at the starters table. Then each coach can call his on plays and every one can play without getting hurt. This is all sarcasm of course but this guy is really going to end football as we know it. He really is playing with a lot of less talented football players careers. Might as well put flags on and put a pink no-touch QB jersey on.
