I would like to see the NFL adopt what the XFL was doing for replay decisions ... an official reviewer right there in the stadium where the game is being played doing the review and making a call ... it was nice to listen to these guys explain what they were looking at, especially when there was more than 1 thing involved on a particular play ... I thought they did an excellent job with this

and I would hope the NFL would take note and kick idiot fathead Al Riveron to the curb along with the rest of the Society of the Blind people he had doing reviews in New York ... nothing against blind folks mind you, just that they aren't the best candidates for visual reviews

Sad to hear. It seems they had a real chance this time if it wasn't for the virus.

I think the drawing for the four teams who get exemptions for 2020 should be in a few more months. Got my fingers crossed that it will be the NFC North this time around.
Just an update on this, the NFC East was selected to receive the exemptions this year. Here's the breakout:

  • Giants - Sandro Platzgummer - RB - Austria
  • Eagles - Matt Leo - DE - Australia
  • Washington - David Bada - DE - Germany
  • Cowboys - Isaac Alarcon - OL - Mexico
