NFL Annual Meeting 2016: Suggested Change To Colts' "Stadium Lights" Rule

NFL Annual Meeting 2016: Suggested Change To Colts "Stadium Lights" Rule The Indianapolis Colts have submitted a "Stadium Lights" rule which is described on page 47 of 51 (which is page 64 of 145 of the Annual Meeting Guide) and reads as follows: "5. Stadium Lights Stadium lights must be turned on at least 60 minutes prior to kickoff in all domed stadiums and in all stadiums with a retractable roof in the closed position. In addition, the Referee has the final authority when determining if stadium lights will be used at an outdoor stadium. In making this decision, when appropriate, the Referee shall consider input from the participating teams, the broadcasting network, and local public safety officials. If stadium lights are being turned off as part of pregame player introductions, the lights cannot be turned off until both teams have cleared the field following the conclusion of pregame warm-ups. All stadium lights must be returned to 100% operation prior to kickoff. Submitted by Indianapolis Colts" The problem is that stadium lights generally take 20 minutes to 30 minutes to completely ramp up to produce full light at the levels they may be set at for NFL game conditions. That really means the lights are on just 30 minutes to 40 minutes before kickoff, thus producing a situation where visiting teams have to quickly adjust to the light standards close to game time. Adding 30 minutes would make this problem less likely to happen. Thus, the time should be 90 minutes and not 60 minutes. Thank you, Zennie Abraham Zennie62Media
