more football and a chance for more fans to see their team have a chance at the lombardi isn't a benefit for the fan? really?
At what point are you diluting the NFL? A losing team shouldn't be there because they could not win in the season, not because they might win now. That is afterall, the point of playing the season. All this is, is more money as already stated. That is the bigest impact this will have and the main priority. Zero benfits for the fan really. But you can't just keep adding playoff teams and regular season games without eventually diluting the meaning of either or. 14 games doesn't seem so bad but teams can already go 8-8 and make the playoffs in hte right division.
As a fan my concern isn't money or more football it is the quality of the game/season/post-season, which I don't see how it will be maintained doing things like this. Quality should be all of our concerns because we are the consumer, what else do you invest in that isn't your concern? At what point is there too many? Goodell will most likley have a number based on money, not quality. Why not 18? or 20?
and i don't get this "diluting" stuff. how exactly is it diluting the playoffs or the game? more teams mean more competition. more competition means more fight. more fight means tougher to get to the top. if anything it just means that the team that will have won it all will have had to fight harder in the playoffs than ever before and isn't that what we want? to have the team that wins it all really have proved it?
