Owners to Select Host of 2011 Super Bowl During Meeting Tuesday
The owners are scheduled to choose a host city for the 2011 Super Bowl when they meet Tuesday in Nashville.
Dallas and Indianapolis are regarded as the front-runners. Both cities are building new stadiums. Phoenix also has submitted a bid.
The owners also might talk about the possibility of attempting to shorten the NFL draft by limiting teams to 10 minutes to make their first-round picks. Currently, clubs have 15 minutes to make the selections. Last month's draft had the longest first round in history, at 6 hours 8 minutes.
There could be further discussions of proposals to change the overtime format to reduce the advantage of the team that wins the coin toss, but no measure is scheduled to be put to a vote.
