What could the NFL do with the off season?

40 posts in this topic

Since this is the first Sunday without any football, and with so much talk of an 18 game regular season... I was thinking about things the NFL could do in the off season.

Sundays are boring now... Sure there's basketball, golf and hockey now but its not the NFL.

Other than extending the season, which I personally think is a bad idea... what else could they do?

How about a minor league season in the spring. Each franchise could have a minor league team of talent that didn't make the NFL and play like an 8 game season with a short playoff.

I would watch that, would you?

I was just talking about this at work, I would love a minor league team made up of players not on the 53 roster most of the season. This would give lot's of players the opportunity to show off their skill and this will make the league millions...The down side to all of this is watering down the NFL product need to keep the fans excited for next season to begin.

The NFL leaves you wanting more, that is a good thing for their product. It beats burning people out on it.

Yeah, I've wanted a minor league for some time. A place to groom guys. Get them playing time. I'd definitely watch.

There's definitely a burn out factor, which is why the season should be short...

Also to keep talent for the NFL high, once a player has been on an NFL roster for say... More than 8 games or something, they can't play in the minor league.

Basically I just miss football... Give me more.

They use to have that NFL Europe league. Always liked watching Amsterdam. Walter Paytons son was awesome. Think he played for the titans later on and even scored a td.

a league of players that aren't good enough to play in the NFL?

it's called the CFL! not even a fair comparison, but it's a fix and a good enough reason to drink beer with 30 or 40 thousand of your friends!

The "new" USFL slated for next year is aiming to fill that minor league role. Unlike the failed UFL, it will play its games in the spring/summer.

I have my doubts it will even get off the ground, though.

    • I hope not because I wouldn't have a clue how to pronounce his name. Is that an L or an I? 
    • I would love Tarik, balled out at my alma mater. Would be great for him to be a panther.  
    • some people are assholes for their own benefit. like yeah i believe you were a bowtie boy and i believe you logic'd yourself into affirmative action bake sales and such but to me there is a fundamental difference between a person who is just wrong and a person who harbors terrible beliefs from which they stand to gain. yeah i ridicule both but imo there's being a smug dork calling for an end to minimum wage and there's literally blaming victims of rape for their rape. i would leave my sister/wife/daughter in a room with college republicans because like what are they gonna do, impose a flat tax on them? but the type of person who says "well what did she expect? men have their hormones you know..." is someone who has probably had some uh...questionable sexual encounters. and yeah i know you tried to draw a parallel between yourself and arsen wrt the specific topic at hand but it seems like you were trolling and dumb whereas this dude's literally going into biological justifications for rape. convert the willing sure but nothing he has posted leads me to believe he is willing.
