“This is a long time coming, and football’s back,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “and that’s the great news for everybody.” I ask… but at what cost? What is the product going to be like on the field and not just this year? I hope that I am wrong. NFL Professional Football is my favorite sport and I bleed Silver and Blue. I am worried about the concessions that the owners gave into as far as practices and off season workouts…

  1. Limiting on-field practice time and contact
  2. Limiting full-contact practices in the preseason and regular season
  3. Increasing number of days off for players
  4. Eliminates 2-a-day practices
  5. Average 1 padded practice per week
  6. Maximum 4.5 hours of field play per day in training camp
  7. One padded practice limited to 3 hours in training camp
  8. Second practice limited to non-helmet walk through
  9. Unannounced inspections by NFLPA Staff to ensure compliance
  10. Spring Semester Off
  11. Limit of 9 week off season conditioning program
  12. Veterans do not report until the 3rd week in April
  13. Reduces OTAs from 14 to 10
  14. Maximizes time for players to return to school to complete degree
  15. 1st day limited to physicals and meetings (PreSeason)
  16. 2nd and 3rd day no pads or contact (Preseason)
  17. Only one padded practice per day limited to 3 hours with the second practice up to the 4 hour (Preseason)
  18. Limit being a walk through (preseason)
  19. Limit of 14 total padded practices during the Regular Season, 11 of which must be held during the first 11 weeks (club may hold 2 padded)
  20. One padded practice per week in postseason
  21. Padded practices limited to 3 hours
  22. Bye Weeks – [five] consecutive days off

You can see more here. As far as I can tell, in the name of player safety, college football may get a big boost of fans here in a few years and the NFL owners might wish they had put in the opt-out clauses that we were hearing about.

Baton Rouge – LSU’s football team will open the 2011 season against Pac-10 power Oregon in Cowboy Stadium in Arlington

Game Notes:

The LSU-Oregon contest will mark the second consecutive year in which the Tigers will open the season at a neutral site and on prime time national television. LSU opened the 2010 season last week with a 30-24 victory over North Carolina in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta.

The Ducks are coming off of a BCS National Championship appearance and back-to-back Pac-10 titles. This season, they will try to become the first ever Pac-12 champion.

Oregon is bringing back key players, including quarterback Darron Thomas, Heisman finalist LaMichael James, and senior wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei.

A defensive battle will be a huge test for the Ducks. In 2010, the Ducks scored 40 points or more in 10 of their 12 regular season games. Up until playing California in November, the least amount of points they scored in one game was 42 against Arizona State.
