    It's a non issue for the owners. When the league collapses the taxpayers will be on the hook. How much is St Louis taxpayers still on the hook for their stadium? How's that situation working out for Minnesota? We're just here to allow corrupt humans beings get filthy rich. What a pathetic society we are.

    Yes, we are a fun species. We can build the pyramids, but we can’t remember if we locked the door (even though we KNOW we locked the door) !

    Yup. Let's say that the Pats and another AFC team both finish undefeated and the Pats get the #2 seed due to tiebreakers. They have to play on WC weekend, then punch everybody right in the dick through the SB. 16 season wins, 4 postseason wins.

    I'm not so much thinking about the Patriots in this post...but all the guys that have worked so hard through their teen years, college and pros. Players that have worked hard to be exceptional at their position but their dream to make the NFL playoffs and more have failed at no fault of their own because their team consistently just misses the playoffs.

    A little bit more inclusiveness in the playoffs with more Patriots Super Bowl wins? Yeah I'm ok with that.

    Oops....someone doesn't like "more Patriots Super Bowl wins"

    I'm not talking about participation trophies and failure Colts banners...I'm just saying it wouldn't bother me much "IF" the number of playoff games stayed the same for the number one and two seed teams...and the rest of the other teams beat themselves up playing wildcard bingo.

    Ok i hit a nerve LOL

    The NFL is way over it's head in mediocre Teams. Empty seats. ratings down. An absolutely stupid Commish controlled totally by owners. Drugs, criminals, politics becoming part of the game. The gig is up. Now they want to show more of it's weaknesses.

    Every one seems to agree on getting rid of the 3rd and 4th pre-season game.

    This is an interesting compromise. Players will get their playoff bonuses if they play, and not have to play two more regular season games.

    18 game schedule. Each team gets 2 byes. 2 preseason games. Super Bowl on a Saturday night. Pro Bowl on Sunday night (Or eliminate this game all together). They should also ensure there is not a scenario where the team with the better record visits the team with a worse record (IE [email protected] in 2010). Re-seeding needs to take place somehow like the NBA does.

    I'd like to see more wildcard teams beat themselves up before they play the Pats...

    "I'm not talking about participation trophies and failure Colts banners...I'm just saying it wouldn't bother me much "IF" the number of playoff games stayed the same for the number one and two seed teams...and the rest of the other teams beat themselves up playing wildcard bingo."

    Not sure why that's such a bad thing. I'm not worried about other teams...only the Pats....let the other teams beat themselves up.

    I don't think they're going far enough.

    I think all teams are in the playoffs except the divisional Basement dwellers.

    All six Basement dwellers have a mini playoff bracket and the dweller champs get a ticket to the big dance.

    Why stop there? Expand the regular season to 30 games, put teams in Nicaragua, Burkina Faso, Nepal and Swaziland then play a Round Robin playoff format, best of 3 each series before deciding the Super Bowl winner on Tecmo.

    You are certainly not wrong but it is not more “product” the owners want, but more money. If that means, more concussions, well....it’s a small price to pay....

    Games are the product. An additional week of games that matter to broadcast would obviously generate more money.
