The NFL has seen its share of problems over the past decade, but the most recent came in 2012, when players started taking a break from football.
The NFL Players Association took over and announced a number of changes.
They banned the use of players’ names, pictures, likenesses and other images of them, and made it illegal to promote or sell their likenesses on social media.
This year, they also suspended players for the first four games of the season, effectively ending the lockout.
Now, they’re working on a plan to revive the league.
But they’re still not sure exactly how.
“We have some very big questions on the horizon,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy told ESPN.
“What are the long-term impacts, what are the short-term ramifications, what do the fans want?
I think that’s going to be a big focus.”
What the NFL will do: The league is taking a long view on its future.
The league will announce more detailed plans to try to address these issues next month.
But it’s not likely to do anything drastic.
The goal, McCarthy said, is to be more than a “one-game-at-a-time” league.
“It’s not going to change every single week, but we’re working hard to create a new model that’s different and better than the current model,” McCarthy said.
The most important part is the focus.
“The first thing you have to understand is we’re trying to bring the NFL back to the next level,” McCarthy told reporters.
“You can’t just put a bunch of rules and regulations on the players.
That doesn’t work.
You have to be realistic about the league, and we’re making that reality very clear to our fans.”
A more positive outlook is being taken in other parts of the sport.
While it’s true that a lot of the problems were caused by players getting hurt, the league’s focus on players is a positive.
The game has changed drastically over the years, and the way athletes look has changed, too.
In the 1970s, a lot more people were watching the game than they do today.
There were plenty of commercials, including some that promoted steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.
It’s been a struggle for the NFL to make sure that fans are aware of what’s happening.
The next step, McCarthy told Sports Illustrated, is creating “an environment where people can come out and enjoy it.”
