Default NFL Switching to 18 Regular Season Games...

Looks like even a blind squirrel finds a nut on occasion. This is a Goodell initiative, one of the few with merit. They'd drop two preseason games and add two regular season contests.

How does the Players' Association go along with this? Does everyone salary go up 12% by playing in 2 more games then?

Although I'll admit to going through some severe football withdrawal following the Pro Bowl, the Pens cover the gap till mini camps just fine.

Oh, so this is probably part of Goodell's big push for playe safety, right?

I mean, because if I was worried about too many injuries because the sport is so rough, the first thing I'd do would be to add 15% more full-speed games. ... wait a minute ... UNLESS it really is just about the money!

Seriously, why doesn't Goodell just come right out and say, "We're making this change out of pure greed, and we made the 'player safety' changes out of greed too because we want to favor flashy finesse teams." Way to go, sackbreath.

I heard some radio guy ( ESPN or FOX )say he thought it was a no brainer to add more games and he thoought if there was to be a poll it wolud be 100% for more games ...
I think it so the radio guys get 2 more weeks of real talk instead of the bull **** that come out of there mouth .
