    Dumb Rules in the NFL

    Dumb Rule #1:

    The team pays a 53 man roster but can only bring 45 to a game.

    Why?

But I think the real reason why the NFL wont allow teams to carry the extra 8 men, is because they would feel guilty if one, or more of the players got sick and blew chunks on the plane, therefor they have 45 instead of 53 because that's 8 less piles of Vomit to clean up. I hope I answered your question.

    Also I wished that the Super Bowl was on a Saturday. Instead of a Sunday in which it should be for church and family time.
    Black Friday 2014!

    45 Man roster.

    Doing a little research on this, it appears that modern teams have been limited to about 45 players. The CBA currently limits the league as a whole to 45, but individual teams can dip to as low as 42. Teams are allowed to have as many as 53, to keep things "fair", but can only have up to 45 (plus a 3rd emergency QB) active on gameday. You can actually download a copy of the 2006 CBA from nflplayers DOT com.

    I have heard during games that the 8 inactives was to level the playing field, when a team has injured players. IMO, if the NFL wants to level the playing field, they should fire the current officiating staff. These guys are about as biased as I have seen in years. Of course, that is probably by design.
