OWNERS DISCUSS COLLEGE-STYLE SPRING GAMES
Posted by Michael David Smith on October 15, 2008, 2:15 p.m.

Spring games are a staple of the college football off-season, with some schools filling their stadiums with fans willing to pay to watch a glorified scrimmage.

And that has a few NFL owners wondering whether the same idea could work in pro football.

NFL owners completed their meetings today, and one of the issues up for discussion was the possibility of adding spring games. No action was taken, but the idea was batted around, both in terms of having an intrasquad spring game and in possibly having two teams play spring games against each other.

“It was raised by a few clubs,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “More in the context of what the colleges do.”

The idea was part of the overall discussion of expanding the season. The league does not expect to make any changes in the schedule for 2009.

with the chiefs driving fans out of arrowhead in droves, this could backfire on them. look for some more discussion on this topic before anything comes about.
