It kind of defeats the point of having a good regular season if you can go 8-8 or even 7-9 and have a shot at the Super Bowl.



It's fuking stupid. They are going to kill the goose that laid the golden egg if they don't quit tinkering with the NFL. There are only 16 games, the regular season is sacred. Leave it alone. Goodell is an idiot for even considering the idea.

They used to also play 14 games a year and people said the same thing when they tried to move it to 16.



Well the people were right. It was perfect.

I agree with expanding them to 14 games. How is it fair for the 9-7 Titans to miss out last year or the 10-6 Bucs before that?

NO. Example #1-- the Jets under no circumstances should be in the playoffs this year unless they magically win a 6th seed. If you can't get in with 12 spots, too bad. We get new playoff teams every year.

it's their tinkering that got it to 16 games and 32 teams in the first place.

Defending Goodell?

would that be a bad thing if i was (which i'm not, btw)? is he the debil incarnate? is he the bad guy?

he's just a guy and he's getting a bad wrap with this rule thing because it's not him making the rules, suggesting the rules, voting on them...he's just mentioning that it's been brought up and it will be discussed just like any suggestions would.

and the whole bounty gate thing is something that i love...you know why? because it was tearing down the SAINTS!!!! i can't for the life of me understand why any self-respecting panther fan would choose the saints side over goodell. goodell should be considered a hero for throwing that team back down the crapper, esp. since they were targeting cam.

has nothing to do with Saints or any of that mess, he did a good job on all of those things. I hate the Saints. Adding more teams to an already good playoff system is just dumb. Always has to be about money doesn't it

heres what you and the others aren' t getting tho...HE'S NOT MAKING THE RULES! crap, very rarely are the rule changes his idea.

its the competition committee suggesting the rules and the owners voting on them.

the whole thread is flawed because its started under the assumption that this is all goodall just trying to change the league when hes just the guy reporting what some have brought up to be discussed at the owners meeting at the end of the year.

and what makes it dumb and the whole 10 team thing so much better? whats so special about the way it is now?

Owners want to see higher revenues and more profits from their investments and fans want to see more football. What's wrong with that? Most fans don't have a life anyway :thumbsd: Giving them more football would be a perfect way to keep them out of trouble.
