    Competition Committee to review teams resting their starters.

    NFL to ask competition committee to look again at game, competitive balance - ESPN

    This is ridiculous. I understand that some folks are upset that the Colts benched Manning, but does anyone really want to see the league step in and mandate that starters have to play? There would be no way to make it work.

    no way they do anything about it. They're just 'looking into it' to make people happy.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    but the very fact that they are giving even the slightest creedence to the folks who are complaining is a joke.

    Yeah so is the league going to set starting lineups now? Stupid. Tell teams to play there own games and stop worrying about what other teams are doing.

    people whine too much, they went undefeated earlier in the season so they deserve to rest when they want.


    You want to bench your guys? win 13 games straight and not have to worry about anyone taking you out of your home field.

    Cool.

    Then Manning will just develop a mystery ankle injury that's cured in a week. Wayne will have explosive diarrhea for a couple games.

    Plenty of ways around any potential rule.

    I hated what the Colts did, but the league stepping in will make things waaaay worse.

    is it mostly fantasy players complaining or is it actual fans complaining? I am guessing fantasy players

    Peyton Manning will start the game, but will be benched during the second half of it due to "disciplinary reasons".

    The NFL would be nowhere near as successful as it is now without those fantasy players though

    Agreed ...... so fantasy players are having the issues because they cant win there league pot, over the actual players well being? It would seem you would draft accordingly. Knowing Manning would get sat, would you not draft another player for that last week? I would rather Manning not get hurt and possible a career ending career if they have it sewn up already. How mad would "Fantasy" owner's be if he got hurt say... last week? Then it would be "WHY, WHY, WHY?"

    If I was making 100million a year, and the coach wanted me to sit to save my hind end from a possible injury, I would sit. If I loved the game that much knowing he knows whats best I would agree with him. Then again, thats my opinion
