Patriots and ownership committees
By Mike Reiss
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Monday marks the official start of the NFL's annual meeting, where owners, head coaches and personnel directors come together for a few days to discuss the state of the league.
Along those lines, let's kick things off with a look at the committees in which the New England Patriots have representation (there are 26 overall committees):
Finance committee Robert Kraft
Compensation committee Robert Kraft
Broadcasting committee Robert Kraft (chairman)
NFL Network committee Robert Kraft
Digital media committee Jonathan Kraft (co-chairman)
Business ventures committee Jonathan Kraft
Management council executive committee Robert Kraft
While the Patriots aren't represented on any of the committees that directly touch the on-field product, Bill Belichick was proactive in proposing four rule changes for consideration this year. Those figure to generate plenty of discussion over the next few days.
