NFL won't expand playoffs in 2013

Next cut the number of pre-season games in half!!

************************************************** *******

Goodell also said the playoffs will not expand this season, but it will be discussed for the future. Last December, Goodell spoke about adding two or four teams to the current 12-team format.

''The competition committee looked at some of the issues,'' said Goodell, who added the league needs to discuss expanded playoffs with the players' union, too.

''Now, we have a little bit of work to do before we can advance it. It clearly won't be happening for this year if there was any doubt about that.''

Re: NFL won't expand playoffs in 2013

Roger just refuses to leave well enough alone. Every year, he doesn't just tinker, but seems to come up with major rule changes. Now he wants to change the playoff format.

Let's see how many things he is pushing to ruin the game of football:

He wants to play 18 game seasons - Stupid idea, and hypocritical from a man who claims to care about player safety.

He wants to expand the Playoffs - Yeah, let's water it down and be like the other failing sports.

He wants to have teams over seas - Logistical nightmare.

He is slowly turning this league into flag football, and now he wants to penalize running backs for helmet to helmet.

He first moves up the kickoff, making touchbacks way too easy, and now thinks he can get rid of kickoffs altogether - Moron.

I'll stop now, before I vomit and bust a blood vessel.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Looked at what issues, Rog? Like maybe allowing teams with 6-10/7-9 records into the playoffs may not be such a good idea? This guy never ceases to amaze me, .

Even if they do expand the playoffs to half the league I'm sure the Cowboys will find a way to blow it.

Re: NFL won't expand playoffs in 2013

Shortening preseason in half would is the only one I'd be good with.
Expanding the post-season is an Aweful idea.
Going to 18 games regular season - too much.

Not sure I would use the word "amaze" ... disappoint seems more apropos!
