Twitter Streams Bills/Jets TNF, Goodell Focused On Kickoff Return, South Park Takes On Kaepernick, Lady Gaga SB Discussion


The Thursday Night Football matchup between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets has always been a great rivalry. Tonight’s game also marks the first time Twitter will stream an entire game. In twitter fashion, there will be comments from the sponsors running throughout the game. Twitter will air 10 games this season as part of a strategy to revive the company.

The NFL launched a $100 million initiative to help address player’s safety. One of the issues discussed is the hard hits players endure during kickoff returns. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is considering eliminating the kickoff if some of the other measures they are considering don’t work out. One downside of eliminating the kickoff is what to do with the onside kick.
