so if he said they were gonna reduce the number of games you'd be for that? Personally I think expanding the number of games is OK....
I would go to an 18 game schedule...eliminating two preseason games. You would play 6 games in your division (home and away)...and then one game vs. every team in your conference's other divisions (6 home, 6 away) rotating home and away every other year
this would eliminate a lot of the stupid tie breaker scenarios as there will be a head to head game no matter which teams are tied...the top 6 teams make the playoffs, keep the seeding like it is.
The Super Bowl would go back to the only way AFC vs. NFC happens outside of preseason.
a typical season could look like this -
..and the season isn't any longer, but you don't feel like you wasted your money watching the last two preseason games as ticket holders would get to see two more regular season games.
