2020 Rule Changes

Scorecard of the 2020 owners videoconference meetings [live updates]



NFL owners are meeting remotely via Microsoft Teams to discuss many items for the 2020 season, including 9 rules proposals, 3 bylaws changes, and at least 4 policy resolutions.

Football Zebras will be updating this post as information is reported on the status of individual agenda items. A brief summary of each is listed below, indicating the team that proposed it or “CC” for a Competition Committee proposal and the disposition of each proposal. In order to pass, a proposal needs a ¾-vote of all owners, or 24 voting in the affirmative (abstentions are essentially counted the same as “no” votes; in the unlikely event there are absentees, those teams are not counted at all).

Remote meetings are being held May 19 and May 28.

Updates and source information are posted below the lists.
