The 2019 NFL owner’s meetings are going on this week with a bunch of big rule proposals being discussed in length, with replay being one of the main ones looking to be changed, especially after the New Orleans Saints got screwed out of a Super Bowl trip in the NFC Title game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Every March, NFL owners and coaches gather to discuss the season that was, the season that will be, and the potential things they could do to make the game that much better.
After hours of debate and proposals, this is what the league has agreed on so far for the 2019 season and beyond:
One other rule they decided on was to make blindside blocks totally illegal in an effort to cut down on concussions.
As the league announced, “It is a foul if a player initiates a block in which he is moving toward or parallel to his own end line and makes forcible contact to his opponent with his helmet, forearm, or shoulder.”
As you can see, nothing about replay is on there, but that was because it was tabled until later on today where they can discuss further.
