Roger Goodell doesn't expect Redskins name to change

Shannon Reynolds | 31 January, 2018, 22:49

The commissioner said the focus for reviews of catches and other challenged plays will be on "making sure it doesn't interrupt the flow of the game".

COLIN COWHERD: Thank you. Yes. Additional emphasis will be placed on the "survive the ground" aspect, which came into play on Jesse James' overturned touchdown in the Pittsburgh Steelers' Week 15 loss to the New England Patriots.

Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com noted Goodell said he previously brought together a summit of five Hall of Fame receivers and multiple coaches to discuss the rule.

If Goodell's tone about the rule is an indication, it might be overhauled soon.

"Dan Snyder has really worked in the Native American community to understand their perspective, and I think it's really reflected in a Washington Post poll that showed that nine out of 10 Native Americans do not take that as disrespectful", Goodell said on the Golic & Wingo show.

ROGER GOODELL: And one of our Hall-of-Fame receivers said it well to me when we looked at this a couple of years ago.

Goodell said he believes National Football League officiating was "outstanding" this season, but that it can always improve. "I am concerned. It's particularly in going to the ground that I think is creating a lot of the confusion".

The NFL's competition committee is slated to meet multiple times over the next two months, which could result in a new rule being proposed to owners in March. If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball until after his initial contact with the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. He didn't promise any changes, but for those who are sick of debating what an National Football League catch is via its complicated rule, the nightmare may soon end.

ReutersNFL commissioner Roger Goodell will push to change the league's controversial catch rule this offseason, saying he is "concerned" after years of complaints and confusion from coaches, players and fans.
