Matt Chatham: NFL Wasted Year By Delaying Study On Goal-Line Cameras

Roger Goodell is late again. After a year of turmoil that saw the NFL commissioner infamously only make the tough decisions once public outcry grew loud enough, Goodell is taking the same lackadaisical approach to an in-game issue: fixed goal-line and boundary cameras.

NFL owners chose cost over game integrity

The NFL owners meetings were certainly anti-climactic. Entering the week it was believed that the use of replay would be expanded in some way, but what way was up in the air with multiple proposals on the docket.  New and improved replay procedures could've possibly included the review of personal fouls, illegal hits and penalties to name a few.  Or it could've included the suggestions...
