Re: Potential Changes in New CBA

Trying to fix something that isn't broken.

They expanded the playoffs in 1981 and it had terrible results.

The 17 game season is just down right stupid. It would mean one team would have one more home or road game, completely skewing the perfect balance of 16 games.

To put it simple, the owners of this league suck and are greedy as hell just trying to find more ways to make more money.

He's not.

The owners are the ones deciding the CBA and drafted it.

Actually, that is part of the new CBA proposal.

CBA would hand most discipline decisions to neutral decision maker

Wrong. The current proposed CBA was drafted by the owners AND the players' committee. It has been approved by the owners and is now going to be presented to the players as a whole for possible ratification.

Re: Potential Changes in New CBA

I love the idea of the 17 week season. It means more NFL football for me and that's a good thing. I laid out how it would work a few weeks ago and from what I am hearing it is almost identical to what I had proposed. The key is the extra game would be on a neutral site. Every team would have eight home and away games. The extra game would be against a team in the other conference, in a division you are not facing that season, that finished in the same divisional position.

The 7th playoff team is a win for the same reason. One more game to watch each Saturday and Sunday of wildcard weekend! And it won't water things down. In most years the extra team in has as good of or better record than one of the four division winner getting the automatic slot.

I am Believing!
