The NHL will abandon the rest of the regular season and go straight into the playoffs with 24 teams instead of 16 if it is able to resume play, commissioner Gary Bettman said Tuesday. "As we seek some return to normalcy, this is an important day for NHL fans," Bettman said of the Return To Play Plan. "Since March 12, we've been hopeful and optimistic that by developing all options and alternatives, we could get to this point. I know I join sports fans everywhere when I say we cannot wait for the players to hit the ice again." Bettman said the goal is to hold an 82-game season in 2020-21. While the players and the NHL have agreed on a format, the NHL Players' Association has not formally approved any actual return to finish the season. The league and the NHLPA also must still figure out health and safety protocols and solve other issues, including where to play.
Goodbye, pass interference replay review: Lessons learned from the NFL's failed officiating experiment
The NFL's half-baked idea to review pass interference is dead. The rule failed so miserably, in the words of league executive vice president Troy Vincent, that it won't so much as appear on the agenda for an owners conference call Thursday to vote on rule proposals.Writing its epitaph should be quick and easy. Addressing the still-present problem, and the core ineffectiveness it revealed, is a more difficult task, one that will be addressed by a new leadership team that is still forming. "At the end of the day," ESPN officiating analyst John Parry said, "the NFL does not have a safety net to fix a game-changing egregious miss heading into the 2020 season. That can't be in today's world." That's why coaches have long advocated for a sky judge with wide-ranging latitude to help, rather than making incremental additions to replay review. Even as he supported last season's rule, New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton predicted a long-term future with sky judges making real-time judgments and corrections.
