No way! Goodell to the rescue again.

Monday, October 15, 2007 ·

Commissioner Roger Goodell has decided to change the way the draft is run. In order to make it more fan- (and TV-) friendly, teams will have 10 minutes instead of 15 minutes in the first round to make a choice (later rounds will also be shaved) in a move that could be announced as early as next week’s league meetings.

Also, there are changes being considered for the Pro Bowl, including playing the game in the off weekend between the conference championships and the Super Bowl (although it would eliminate players from the Super Bowl teams) and perhaps rotating it between cities. “I think (the Pro Bowl) is getting a little bit tired,” Goodell said. “It’s not a great way to celebrate our game (as is).”

- Setting a rookie salary cap is “high on our list” of things to do. “I believe players should be well compensated but they should have to earn it,” Goodell said

- Talk about cutting the preseason back a game or two has been discussed but that those discussions are only in the “infant stage”

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
