    Also... Supposedly the Refs are going to be cracking down on taunting...But they really didn't go into detail other than saying" It won't be so much the TD celebration stuff " but rather the between the whistles chirping and instigating stuff

    Have to be disciplined ( insert Burfict/ Pacman gifted ) playoff game here...If they're truly gonna crack down on taunting...It will obviously benefit the disciplined teams....Which could potentially give you a big play, or potentially in cases like the Cinci debacle...Cost you a game

    It's about time! Finally, FINALLY, change this league really needs! Amazing levels of courage! I was watching those boring-ass, four-hour games last year, the ones with the differently-abled officials, where things like "catches" and "tackles" were total mysteries depite 9 minute reviews... and I thought to myself: "You know what would really help this league?! A Linebacker wearing #1 on his jersey!!" And some folks say there are no heroes left in this world.

    Why wouldn’t this happen? Number restrictions are dumb. They kept the big uglies wearing the ugly numbers, the rest is up to the players. The less unnecessary control, the better

    Next college basketball needs to let players wear 6-9, 16-19, 26-29... etc

    Jim Otto and Kenny Burroughs. College Football brought back “0” this past season. Maybe the NFL will follow.

    Is this so some guy who played for a college team with 150 players can wear his college number? I don't see where the need comes from. Also makes it harder for fans to keep track of who's who on the field.

    I think it's about time they get rid of all the instant replays of the game. It completely kills the ebb and flow along with killing momentum plus it makes these games entirely too long. Why does every single TD, sideline catch and turnover need to be reviewed? Make the call and stick with it. Review it later and if it's determined to be a blown call discipline the official with a bad grade and if they don't perform up to standards then replace them.

    Oh' and the numbers are getting ridiculous also. DB wearing # 15, WR wearing #2, TE wearing #34, LB wearing #8???? :icon e confused:

    We're definitely on the way to giving everyone participation trophies!

    Tom Brady is bitching about this. Apparently player numbers are crucial to his pre snap reads.

    So if Brady hates it, I guess it can't be all bad.

    Hell. It is 2021. I am only surprised that letters, pagan symbols and emojis aren't fair game. Damn these owners and their iron fisted control!

    If Brady hates it, the NFL will probably go back to the old numbers.

    Or maybe the NFL is finally tired of his sh*t too.
