For people who seem to know so much about the game itself and the evaluation of the men who play it there sure are a lot of ignorant fugers as to how the league works.



Goodell can't even dictate the kind of grass seed they use.



Any change to the rules of the game will be decided on by the 32 owners.

Everyone talks about Goodell ruining the game.....he doesn't have the power. The owners have the power. They are the ones making the changes ultimately.

People still watch NASCAR and the NBA and both of those games are turning into poo shows. Goodell knows this and is going to cash in on the NFL.

No internet at the time, but I believe the same complaints happened when the playoffs expanded 10 to 12 teams. Not having a problem with this,  going up in numbers especially since the NFL wants two more teams in the league. If that happens 14 teams out of 34 is still a good number of teams in the playoffs.

You do realize there is more than 1 way to modify the game. You can just give the team 7 pts when they score a TD. Bam!

 

I personally dont like the phrase if its not broken don't fix it. Let me give you some examples

 

Slavery/Racial segregation/Woman rights - Hey its a great system its not broken why fix it - clearly we all see it is wrong now but back then it made sense 

 

Blockbuster/Circuit City/ Wachovia - Hey we making a ton of money and nothings broken lets just keep on doing what we are doing

 

Time changes the game. 

 

Heck just watch football in the 90s 80s 70s 60s etc. You can see how it evolved. The game is very different today than in the past. Football today in my opinion is much better than in the past. You can contribute that to change and the evolution of the game.

 

Did you just compare removing a longstanding football rule with slavery? Congrats, you are now the early favorite for the 'Huddle Douche of the Year' award.

This seems to be what most of the major sports are going to(including NASCAR).... adding more teams to the playoffs so that there is more fan interest at the end of the season and of course... more money for the owners and the League.

So making it easier to get into the playoffs will make the league more competitive? Solid logic Goodell

I mentioned Goodell is a puppet in the OP you cocksuckers I know he isn't single handily doing all of this. He has owners in his ear. And my ass its not about profit. 1 more game a year for select teams = more money

 

But at the end of the day if you allow more teams to enter the playoffs it takes away the excitement of the regular season it doesn't add excitement.

If you cant see the changes in NASCAR and what they want to do in the NFL is about money you just have a brain the size of a pebble

Goodell is basically trying to sell what a handful of OWNERS want to the public. Goodell gets the public hate.....for what the owners want and do

Move the ball back 10 to 15 yards for Extra Points, problem solved.

 

I am in favor of changing the game as little as possible... but I agee. If they must change the extra point, then move it back to the 30 yard line and make it interesting. More of a chance to miss instead of basically an automatic point 99.9% of the time..
