All I said was that Goodell did not say anything in his new conference about increasing revenue...which he did not. He spoke of the "wuality of the game"..which I fuess you did not hear. Of course he spun in that way?? THAT was the dumbest thing I have heard from ANY Commissioner of any league...If that he how he spun it..THOSE who actiually listened and heard his words would not think he was all that smart. While that may be true about revenue that was not mentioned by him, which you may a non correct inference to.Here is what Goddell said: "As it relates to one other aspect of it, and I'll reinforce this point, which I have before, they are being paid for the preseason games," said the commissioner. "It's all part of our total gross revenue, and it's calculated up and they get a percentage of that. They might not get a check cut during that week, but that is how they're paid and those revenues are part of that."
The switch to 18 games is about increasing revenue.
