I've never understood why the NFL goes with this ridiculously unfair bye system. It's an absolute joke and has been since its' inception. Why can't they figure out a way to have half the AFC and NFC take week 8 off and the remaining half of the AFC and NFC take week 9 off??? There are 4 divisions in each conference. Have the AFC East - NFC South - AFC North - NFC West take week 8 off Have the NFC East - AFC South - NFC North - AFC West take week 9 off Each season they can flip it so last year those who had week 8 now have week 9 and and so on. This is a fair system for every team and it provides regional games for every TV market in the country during the 2 bye weeks. I simply don't understsnd why they can't figure this out. Don't tell me it's a sceduling thing because I don't buy that at all. I don't get it!! Can someone explain to me why the NFL can't streamline the bye weeks and make them middle of the season for every team?? Anyone????
