DETROIT - The NFL Rules & Regulations Federation met in the Motor City to discuss some possible rules and regulations changes.
According to NFLR&RF executive director Winthrop "Clicky" Clickfeather one of the proposed changes is making the football smaller.
He stated that by making the football smaller it will cut down on 83 percent of the fumbles.
Clickfeather noted that another positive feature of having a smaller football is that the quarterback will be able to hide it a lot better than the much larger, bulkier football which will result in a much more exciting game.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stated that he is really sick and very tired of his quarterback Tony "Oops" Romo tossing so many damn interceptions.
Jones noted that by having a smaller football it will be much easier to grasp and the quarterback's accuracy will improve by 91 percent.
Steve Bisciotti owner of the world champion Baltimore Ravens pointed out that using a smaller football will cut down on injuries to players who fall on the bigger football causing anything from broken ribs to torn stomach muscles and ligaments.
Bisciotti also stressed the fact that the smaller ball will result in fewer injuries to fans when exuberant players who have just made a touchdown throw the ball into the stands in celebration.
The NFLR&RF disclosed that last year over 23 fans were hurt by footballs being tossed into the stands.
