    NFL going to the Big 12 model

    The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and championships are bought. You have it in the Big 12, you have it in Major League Baseball, and soon the NFL will be reduced to the same handful of teams in the playoffs every year:

    NFL to pull plug on $100 million revenue-sharing program - ESPN


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    If true, this is the worst thing to happen to the NFL in history... next will be the salary cap

    As a bears fan this statement hurts and pisses me off, but I am unable to muster any king of post that contradicts it. Until the bears make wholesale changes in the fron office, they will coninue to struggle.

    Re: NFL going to the Big 12 model

    its not total revenue sharing, it's just revenue from stadiums from what I understand. It still sucks but its only been in place since 2007 so its not that big of a deal. Except that I'm a vikings fan and we lose more than all but one nfl team in this deal because the metrodump sucks so much

    Re: NFL going to the Big 12 model

    Why do I enjoy the NFL? Because on any given Sunday any team can win. And, any given year can be night and day difference from the previous.

    Why do I enjoy MLB? Cold beer, sunny day. Don't care who wins.

    Why do I enjoy the NBA? I don't.

    The NFL is destroying itself.

    Re: NFL going to the Big 12 model

    It's more like the MLB model than the Big 12 model

    Its a preemptive move by the NFL owners for leverage in their upcoming negotiations with the NFL Players Association.
