Proposition of expanding season causes concerns...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Players concerned about expanding NFL season
ESPN: NFL (01.12.2009 15:15)
The NFL is looking at expanding from 16 games to 17 or possibly 18. At a time when there is heightened concern over injuries -- particularly concussions -- that hardly sounds like a good idea to the men in the trenches.

Not really an NFL issue here.  It's just the whacky world that is Raider Nation... But, I started the conversation here, so I might as well end it here...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Cable's accuser, Hanson, rejoins Raiders in personnel department
NFL.com (09.12.2009 19:10)
Randy Hanson, who accused Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable of assault after a training-camp scuffle, has returned to work in the team's personnel department.

Will the NFL ever allow it???  I think they should.  I think it is time to cease the bias!  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Jets, Giants will submit bid to host 2014 Super Bowl in new stadium
NFL.com (17.12.2009 14:44)
The Giants and Jets want to bring the Super Bowl to their new stadium in New Jersey in 2014. After receiving approval from a league committee to bid on an NFL title game, the teams announced Thursday that they will submit a proposal to host what would be a cold-weather title game in four years.

I DIGRESS...
    From "The REAL Feed":
     
    Saints RB Bush knows nothing about losing 2005 Heisman
    NFL.com (08.09.2010 15:18)
    New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush said Wednesday that he hasn't heard anything from the Heisman Trophy Trust about being stripped of the award he won at USC in 2005. He also didn't give any indication that he would voluntarily give it back -- for now.

    Interesting looking back at this almost a half-decade later...  Not that I think USC and Bush deserve to be besmirched the way they are (my thoughts on the matter are more nuanced than that), but Bush has surely proven to be just an okay NFL player with fairly marginal relevance for fantasy football and now there is this less-than-aboveboard circumstance.  Was it really worth it, ending a sort of friendship all to get the back of some flavor-of-the-month NFL player with whom you'll never have a meaningful moment in your life? Or, maybe I was wrong.  Maybe you two girlfriends were chewing the fat all night long about Kim Kardashian back in the day.

The 18-game hangup and the tuck rule, issues for the NFL moving forward... according to "The REAL Feed":
 
NFL players say owners' 18-game schedule the major sticking point
ESPN: NFL (11.01.2011 16:53)
NFL union executive committee members Scott Fujita and Domonique Foxworth say concerns about injuries make the league's push to switch to an 18-game regular season a major sticking point in negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement.

 
Pereira: Reverse the 'tuck rule
Scout.com > NFL > National Football League Team (11.01.2011 16:14)
It's no consolation to Oakland Raiders fans, but former NFL head of officiating Mike Pereira thinks it's time to change the infamous tuck rule. He cites a play in the Chiefs-Ravens game as the basis for his revised opinion.

It is always the unintended consequences that hurt the most, and, yes, by that I am trying to point to the fact that, while at the end of the day all of the NFLers will "win", players and owners alike, the little guys lose.  From "The REAL Feed":
 
As NFL labor talks drag on, small businesses wait and worry
USA TODAY: Sports (09.03.2011 11:26)
Ricky's Sports Theatre & Grill has been an Oakland Raiders fan hangout since the team's first season in 1960. There are pictures throughout ...

 
Look, I am all for the free-market.  But, there is something undeniably ugly when a bunch of "haves", millionaires that is, squabble over, mainly, cash,... moreover, at the expense of the little guy.

I don't know how I feel about this new rule about kickoffs that has passed.  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Kickoffs moved to 35-yard line; touchbacks to stay at 20
NFL.com (22.03.2011 13:32)
NFL kickoffs will take place at the 35-yard line -- not the 30 -- under a modified kickoff proposal passed by the league's owners on Tuesday, according to a league source. The proposal keeps touchbacks at the 20 and continues to allow the two-man blocking wedge.
