    I think this would be aweful. You'll have more irrelevant weeks and more injuries.

    Ding ding ding! The NFL is great the way it is now. Adding more games is just going to water it down.

    NO! 16 games is way enough!! That would be cheating for the old timers holding records!

    Pro football is far and away the most popular pro-sport out there.

    Why mess with it?

    Oh, I'm sorry. Clearly this is a money grab. Onward.

    Terrible idea to lengthen it anymore than it already is.

    If anything, they should move back to 14 games.

    4 preseason is WAY too many. They should just cut that down to 2 and leave the regular season the way it is.

    Not a fan of it because it's going to make more worthless weeks of fantasy football. Plus, with my league, the way it is now is perfect. So selfishly, I don't wan it.

    The preseason is pretty pointless now. Back when players worked regular jobs during the offseason it was relevant as they needed to play some to get into game shape. Now they don't need to work that second job and with the offseason conditioning programs you don't really need all those preseason games. 2 games should be enough to evaluate players fighting for those last couple of roster spots.

    This is the winning formula (and honestly I got along fine before the bye week).

    This can't happen because players are contracted for 20 games. They get paid evenly throughout the preseason and the regular season. The players would obviously want to play less, but the owners have to pay them for 20, meaning they're playing 20 total no matter what.

    I would hate to see the regular season lengthened and the result being, when good teams are in the playoffs, they get to sit their starters for last 4 weeks instead of the last 2 weeks. That would stink.

    Re: NFL Season Likely to be Lengthened!

    Not a fan - the way they set up the schedules is perfect the way it is right now:

    6 against division foes
    4 against foes from a division in your conference
    4 against foes from a division opposite your conference
    2 against the other two foes from your conference that finished in the same place as you in their respective divisions.

    There's your 16 games. How would you schedule those two extra games? Not enough for another "go-around" in your division, not enough to face another division in either conference. The only thing your really could do is face another set of opponents in another tier in the standings, but that could get really confusing, or face two random opponents, which flies in the face of the simplicity of the current NFL scheduling system. Adding one or two extra games just doesn't work.

    The NFL regular season is largely irrelevant as-is. Adding more games makes it even more so.

    In a perfect world, I think they would play fewer regular season games and have more teams in the playoff, since the NFL playoffs are really what the NFL is all about in the first place.
