Preseason Games

the league has given the NFLPA 2 options on games.
18+2
16+2

no more four preseason games. the fans, league, and players dont want it.

Per.PFT sorry couldnt get a link to work.

Thoughts?

Good. Preseason is boring anyways...especially the last few where it's only 3rd and 4th stringers that we will likely never see again.

Moving to 18 regular season games would be a mistake, IMO.

Can't they cut the preseason down to 3 games, and keep the 16 game schedule? Is there that much revenue in preseason? If there's a STL game during the season, can't they just make that the Governor's Cup, and skip the annual preseason Cup game? There are other teams that have annual trophy games, aren't there?

For instance, can't scrimmage games at MO West be televised, with revenue divided amongst the league?

16 and 2 sounds like a good deal.

18 and 2 is such overkill.

Teams would want an equal amount of home games. I don't think any team wants to have 2 away games and only 1 home game in the preseason.

I think it has to be an even number. Owners would be pissed if they only got 8 home games while other teams got 9.

17 wouldn't work as you would have some teams with 8 home and others with 9.

The odd-ness of it, if your team plays away games in PS, better prepares the team for adversity. That, or the bye-week in PS gives you some prep time.

I'd be concerned about PS injuries, which can and does hurt some teams.

I can't understand why the league would give them the option of 16 + 2. Having 2 home preseason games instead of 1 puts quite a bit of extra $$ in the owner's pockets I would think. I know I get fleeced into paying full price for 2 every year as part of the season tickets.

I would think the number of preseason games should be determined by the coaches. These games are not about the fans or revenue (at least they shouldn't be about revenue, IMO), they are a chance to a coach to see lower level players at game speed. It let's the coaches see who to keep for depth, who has picked up the schemes for the season, etc. I think they should keep 3-4 preseason games for the sake of evaluation. They don't need to televise them nationally, let this be a chance for the local guys to broadcast a game maybe. And for heaven's sake, stop charging full admission like a regular season games, these games do not count and there is no reason to expect fans to pay that kind of change.

I would like them to keep the 16 game schedule simply because it works out so balanced for the most part. If you add 2 games, how do you do this in an equitable manner for all teams?
