So no need to look into it because the Rog says it is so.
That's my number 1 problem with the esteemed Commissioner: If he says something is so, it is Gospel truth and that's that.
Does he not see the hypocrisy of citing his #1 priority is player safety....but he wants to do away with some preseason games if it means adding two more reg season games (two more chances for guys who are playing all-out to get hurt)?
So it's no shock that he thinks Thursday games don't pose a problem.
It's not like he's going to do away with a revenue stream named Thursday Night Football.
This league is worrying me. There's some buzz about maybe doing away with kickoffs after scores and resorting to giving the scoring team a 4th down play or punt the ball. LOL. If they do away with kickoffs, just do away with kickers altogether and make it a forced 2-pt conversion after each score. Then, the other team gets the ball on their own 20. Simple solution. But giving the scoring team the option to have the ball after having just scored??? Insane.
