This would be a great idea

I guess I don't see why I should care one way or another about this one. If they want to move it, whatever.

Yep to the 18 games. It's long enough as it is if your a shitty team and an extra win ****s you in the draft that is.

ChiefsCountry 02-21-2013 07:31 PM

18 schedule would put the Super Bowl on President Day weekend. Then you ****ers who get drunk on Super Bowl would have off the next day.

More details...

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/89...on-sources-say

The NFL is proposing an overhaul to its offseason calendar, pushing back the combine to early March, the start of free agency to early April and the draft to early May, according to league sources.

The plan must be approved by the NFL Players Association, but the league already is pushing it aggressively, meeting on the issue most recently -- but not exclusively -- Thursday night in Indianapolis, where the NFL scouting combine is being held.

Under the proposal, all NFL teams also would kick off training camp on the same summer day, making it the official launch of the football season.

The idea is to lengthen the NFL offseason and make sure football is relevant during a longer offseason period with one big event in each month. It also would create a new revenue stream for the NFL, with each event producing added money for the league.

The NFL also wants to expand regional combines as a feeder competition for spots at the official combine in Indianapolis.

NFL continues to tinker with a good thing. Why?

I like watching the draft but it isn't really at all an event for me personally.

Making more set times that mark events in the preseason like everyone starting training camp the same time makes perfect sense. People get up for set dates like that and it is energy they can use for their product.

People on this board are gonna be all HAPPY BACK TO NFL DAY LETS HAVE 12 BEERS.

It makes sense. Sort of like when people go nutsos for pitchers and catchers reporting. And that is (imo) a lesser product.
