NFL potentially moving to 17 game season in new CBA

Recommended Posts

I don't want more regular season games. What we love is playoffs games. Give me more playoffs games. This is just so darn entertaining. We don't need more preseason games. We don't need more regular season games. Add a round of playoffs, and kill the probowl the week before the Superbowl. Or have the probowl later in february for all I care. Have all major sports all-star game at the same time and do cross-overs. We'll finally see if Lebron would have been a great football player. We'll finally see [insert despicable baseball player] get hip-checked by Ovechkin. We can have a big long-drive contest against Dustin Johnson, and see offensive linemen figure skate. Mid february... it's the Olympics! More cross-overs!!

But no more regular season games. Anything but more regular season games.

Pass.

As much as I want more football, do 18 or keep it at 16.

I can already hear all of the complaining with "Well they made the playoffs because they had 9 home games and we had 9 road games! NOT FAIR!"

And I think 16 games is too many games to play at neutral sites like Mexico, London, Toronto, etc. so 16 teams are getting the shaft every year unless all division teams play game 17 on the road one year and at home the next year.

Probowl should remain, the skill challenges are fun to watch, but the NFL already screwed up moving it from Hawaii, no one wants to play in Orlando bruh

And another round of playoffs would be nice, just remove one preseason game

With the popularity of spring leagues, (AAF didnt do too badly, dont estimate XFL do worse) theres not even the argument "I want more football", its entirely corporate and I'm not ready for a third bye week, no thanks.

Another round of playoffs?  I don't want more teams in the playoffs.

Who is the other opponent? 

This sucks for those of us with OCD that love the symmetry of every team playing 4 first, second, third and fourth place finishers from the previous season...

probably a cross conference matchup in a division you aren't already playing.

in the past I thought having a designated rival team made sense...but i think the league would rather just have 16 games they can play with for neutral site games.
So you could more easily fit schedules together too.

You could do like 5 in the UK, 3 in Germany (or other European countries), 2 in Canada, 2 in Mexico City, , and the other 4 be in the US at different venues.
Special events like Eagles vs Steelers up at Penn State

Would be interesting to see the league try to implement the international schedule around Thursday games and the bye week.  Every international game is played on Thursday night, with both teams coming off a bye week.  So both teams get extra recovery time before and after playing the international game.
