NFL commissioner Roger Goodell revealed Wednesday the huge support plans to expand the play-offs have gained since they were first proposed in November.
Goodell was speaking at a league committee meeting at which he went over again the plans to extend the amount of teams that can make the play-offs to 14.
When this will actually happen remains to be seen, but it's understood that it is simply a matter of time before the changes are implemented by the league.
The commissioner spoke at the Annual League Meeting about a number of topics, and league ownership spoke about the topic of the potential expansion.
"I think there is a tremendous amount of interest in this, possibly even to the point of support," Goodell said after ownership discussed the topic this week.
"But there are also things we still want to make sure we do right. We've been very incremental in trying to do this."
It seems Goodell is not satisfied with the climax to the league season, which at its current state has plenty of drama. Not one to settle, the commissioner wants even more excitement.
"But we believe competitively it could make our races toward the end of the season even more exciting, more teams vying for playoff positions, which is great for our fans."
It's unlikely that changes will happen for the 2014 season, but at this stage all bets are off.
