17 Game Season on the way!!! What y’all think?


Recommended Posts

Player salaries keep skyrocketing but want to do the same amount of games.  I wonder if the League went to 15 games if they would take a huge pay cut? It's not an additional game anyway, as one preseason game got axed.  They just don't get to get paid for watching on the sidelines as the 2nd, 3rd and 4th string play in the last "tune up" game.

Because the cap keeps increasing due to league revenues skyrocketing outside of one pandemic impacted season. That's how the CBA works.

I don't need a lecture on the CBA,  I just pointed out that they are getting massive pay increases for the same work load. They should be glad the League didn't scrap preseason altogether and go to 20 games.

Evidently you do. That same workload has been driving revenue growth. 

It's really odd how many fans side with the billionaires. How have you been convinced that you're in the good old boys club? LOL!

At some point you have to produce more for more pay, period.  You are such a condescending cuss, but undoubtedly you take pride in it, el-oh-el. No wonder with that avatar.

Starters only play a half or three quarters  of a preseason game. I doubt that will change.

They should’ve added another bye week.  More TV revenue for the NFL and more rest for the players.  I have a feeling they’re going to use that as a bargaining chip for when owners will want to go to 18 games.

 

I pity the poor fools who are first to go 0-17.
