More flex scheduling could be on the way

I think this is a terrible idea for fans.  Those fans that purchase tickets.  It may not impact alot of them, but if I've planned a trip to a game, booked my flights, etc., and then the league moves the game?  That, in my opinion, is very disrespectful.  

 

Right.

A Sunday game flexed out of SNF is still a Sunday game so odds are travel plans won't be messed up (unless someone planned to travel in Sunday day then go right to the game.)

A flexed MNF game moves to 1pm Sunday which screws up a lot of things with hotels/flights/driving. Plus even non-traveling home fans get screwed because a lot of fans take half or all of Monday off to get out to the game and/or take Tuesday off because the game doesn't get over until 10:30pm.

Laughable. The NFL has multi-billion dollar TV contracts. That's where it generates it's revenue. There's no logic to what you're saying.

You're not wrong, but that doesn't make you right

Honestly? Nuke MNF. I've enjoyed Thursday Night Football more often than I've enjoyed MNF in the past five years. And TNF is terrible.

It's never going to happen. I'd rather have 2 SNF games (1 at 8, the other at 10:30, probably some west coast game) than MNF anyway.

I agree with that completely. Unless the NFL is reimbursing fans for travel plans, this is a load of crap

Thursday night football games this season were terrible

That's how low the bar is for MNF.

I'm not necessarily disagreeing but Thursday should be the first to go

This makes sense if you limit it to happening eight weeks in advance. If a QB goes down in week 4, you can flex their team out of the primetime game in the last quarter of the season.

Other than that, this would really suck.

I get your point, but if they don't care, why charge so much for games, since the revenue isn't important?  The truth is the area economies thrive on games in their immediate area too.  Too many moving parts to change too close to the event.

This is a horrible idea. Flexing MNF is a logistical nightmare for fans. 

Yes, but the NFL doesn't really care about the fans in the stands.  It is all about television ratings and they want competitive games in prime time.

Mainly because several of the teams the league was showcasing on Thursdays were not very good.

Yeah, this makes sense for me as a TV viewer. Allows me to see the best possible match on MNF. Can see why fans who wanted to see the game live would be upset though.
