Don't be shocked when the 21st century arrives and the NFL teams in Super Bowl XXXIV have women quarterbacks launching 135-yard touchdown passes with their power-assisted arms
"In the year 2000, there won't be any contact below the waist." Ã¢â‚¬â€Bum Phillips, Head Coach, Houston Oilers
"The 25-yard end zone is the single greatest thing that could change the game. The whole concept of goal-line defenses would change with that." Ã¢â‚¬â€Marv Levy, Head Coach, Kansas City Chiefs
Sure, open it up.
"Players will look a lot different: lighter equipment, more formfitting shoulder pads, a different type of helmet, soft rib pads." Ã¢â‚¬â€Dan Rooney, President, Pittsburgh Steelers
"By 2000 there'll be pari-mutuel betting on every play in every game in the NFL." Ã¢â‚¬â€Byron Donzis
"There'll be a little metal fleck in the football, so you can tell for sure whether the guy with the ball got over the goal line or was pushed back." Ã¢â‚¬â€Tex Schramm, General Manager, Dallas Cowboys
You bet, that's a can-do.
Here's a great one that was dug up on someone's blog from 1979 about what pro football would be like in 2000.
It's a gas!
Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
