Oh no, there is something to Thursday night NFL doubleheader; Jerry Jones says could be ‘easily’ done

So much for NFL PR shooting down a Wall Street Journal report that the league is considering adding a second game on Thursday nights.

Daniel Kaplan of Sports Business Daily has this from Jerry Jones:

In an interview yesterday at his team’s HQs, Jones, who also chairs the NFL Network Committee, replied affirmatively to a question about whether the NFL was discussing the doubleheader concept.

He said, “We could easily have a doubleheader on Thursday. I don’t think that is out of the realm of thought, we haven’t set up how we will do it.” All options are open, he said, when asked if a second Thursday night game would also air on NFL Network or elsewhere.

Again, this is a really bad idea on so many levels. Let’s hope it doesn’t go beyond the Jerry Jones is talking stage.
