(The Sports Xchange) – NFL commissioner Roger Goodell claims he has heard the average fan’s discontent about the pace of the game and intends to do something about it.

In an email addressed to the fans on Wednesday, Goodell wrote that the NFL will make a series of changes that will help improve “the flow and pace of the game, and commercialization and the number of necessary disruptions to the game on the field.”

Goodell promised in the email that the league will tweak in-game timing and replay reviews, with next season to feature starting of a clock after a player goes out of bounds and the duration of halftime. A play clock also will be instituted after extra points.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this specific problem plus it really does give us a lot of fodder for thought. Nevertheless, from what I have personally seen, I just simply wish as other commentary pile on that folks keep on point and in no way embark on a tirade associated with some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this fantastic piece and while I can not really concur with this in totality, I regard your point of view.
