Last week, as part of the Procter and Gamble Blogger Fantasy League draft at NFL headquarters, my leaguemates and I had a chance to sit down with NFL VP of Officiating Carl Johnson to talk about how league officials make sure rules are being followed on Sundays. As part of their presentation, the league gave each of us a DVD with the same video about rule changes that is shown to players at the start of training camp. I figured, if anyone wants to sit through a 15 minute video on the specifics of NFL rules changes, it is the readers of this website. So I got permission from the league to post the video. I hope you enjoy.
Click here to view the video. Please be aware that the first 5-6 seconds are blank, so it won't start immediately.
