NEW YORK - NFL owners could vote as early as March on some form of a centralized video-review operation, commissioner Roger Goodell said on Friday.

At his annual Super Bowl news conference, in the Rose Theatre on Broadway, Goodell confirmed that the league's competition committee is looking at centralized video-review models of other sports leagues, including the NHL's.

QMI Agency reported exclusively in December that Jay Reid, an NFL officiating representative, had been in communication with the NHL for about a month, and that he spent the evening of Saturday, Nov. 30 in the NHL's video-replay "Situation Room" in Toronto.

Reid was there to see first-hand how the hockey league conducts reviews from myriad, concurrent games using cutting-edge, real-time technology.
