Not a bad idea, but I don’t really see what the issue is with pre season. People can just not watch it if they don’t like it. It’s mostly backups playing trying to make the roster so really not hurting starters.The best idea I've heard for shortening the preseason came, I believe, from one of the coaches who suggested two actual preseason games + two televised joint practices for each team.
I guess if you do anything you take one game away. Have one game with a drive or two from starters, dress rehearsal, and scrub fest. Hall
Of fame game should def count as one of the four (or 3 in this scenario), five is very excessive.
Not sure if it’s realistic with season ticket packages, but maybe you do 3 with one home, road and then a neutral site.
