Two days ago, the NFL denied a Wall Street Journal story that reported that the league was considering adding an additional Thursday night football game.

With a doubleheader, Thursday's high tide would lift both games, which would be in keeping with a certain Goodellian philosophy. The NFL forcefully shot down the report, saying it hadn't "considered" or "even discussed it."
