NFL wants later times, dates, added primetime game?
 
By Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY
Although changes could be a few years away, NFL fans shouldn't get too comfortable on their couches.
In the next TV contract for 2006, February might be a month with more playoff games. And fans could have an extra hour of Sunday leisure.

Moving back the start of the season at least a week and pushing back kickoff times for Sunday games are among the proposals former ESPN/ABC Sports President Steve Bornstein has asked the networks to consider in negotiations. Bornstein, hired as NFL executive vice president, is charged with boosting the rights fees from the current eight-year, $17.8 billion deal.

It is expected that negotiations could be conducted this fall, a year sooner than scheduled.

The NFL has floated several proposals to the TV networks to alter programming. Which proposal do you think is the best?

Move back Sunday kickoff times an hour

Drop the AFC/NFC designations for Sunday games

Start the season one or two weeks later

Switch 'Monday Night Football' to Thursdays

Add a fifth package of games to another network (extra primetime game)

I wouldn\'t mind \'em moving the kickoff times, and I really like the idea of starting the season a week or two later. I\'m all for the extra Primetime game on another network too, as long as the CBS crew doesn\'t have anything to do with it. Those guys suck!
