The No Fun League is taking some of its entertainment cred back.
This follows the news that teams will now have one day to cut rosters down from 90 players to 53 players (eliminating the 75-man roster step). The change will include all preseason, regular season and playoff games - postseason games can not end in ties.
National Football League owners also approved shortening overtime in the preseason and regular season from 15 to 10 minutes. Only 22 of the 83 overtime games played over the past five years went beyond 10 minutes (average time is 7 minutes, 43 seconds).
The rule change could result in more ties, of which there were two last season.
Many coaches will be grateful to hear this news as it'll give them one more game to try out players at the bottom of the roster.
Because the roster was normally cut down to 75 while teams also rested many, if not all of their starters in that final preseason game, there are often not enough bodies to ensure an adequate game is played.
The league will still penalize celebrations that go on for extended periods of time, but the change is a step toward a promise Goodell made this spring to make the game more concise and entertaining.
American footballers will once again be allowed to celebrate their big plays next season after the NFL - which had been dubbed the No Fun League - relaxed its rules.
In other rule changes, the National Football League has elected to shorten the length of overtime from 15 minutes to 10 minutes.
Postseason games are unaffected, and other overtime rules remain unchanged. Players are allowed to use the ball as a prop, celebrate in groups and celebrate on the ground, as per ESPN. While most sports fans probably agree that excessively choreographed celebrations are stupid, simply showing emotions isn't a bad thing.
Also a new rule that will take effect this year is the elimination of the first round of roster cuts.
Overtime isn't the only change coming.
Lastly, the owners also voted unanimously to move Super Bowl 55 to Tampa Bay, per multiple reports. The league will put an emphasis on banning any form of mocking - apparently older players were very adamant about that - but in general, we should see a lot more creativity in the end zone.
