NFL season is almost here
I was thinking about the upcoming NFL, season. Now the preseason will start in just a few a few weeks. The preseason, is 6 weeks long. My thought on the preseason, is to long. It should only be 4 weeks long.
And add the other two weeks, to playoffs.
There are alot that just miss out on the playoffs, that get the game really going toward the middle of the season.
Is it right, that the those good teams, just miss the playoffs ? Maybe.
However, the players contact, does count the preseason games. This happened, how times have we seen a player get hurt, and cannot play till middle season, or the next season.
Yes, the preseason is needed for the couching staff, to judge the players, but 6 games ?
You have to kidding me.
They go through spring training. Along withj the preseason. They know will make the team or not.
TV ratings, you tell me, what gets more ratings, the prerseason games or the playoffs ?
Am sorry what was that.
Why, yes you are right. It is the playoffs!!!!!!!!!!
It just seems it would be better business, to shorten the preason and extend the playoffs.
Some of you might day then why not extend the season, and leave the playoffs alone, with they shorten the preseason ?
The only way I see that to happen. Is if they add more teams.
If the in NFL, expends the league from 32 teams to lets say 34 or 36 teams. Then the NFL would have to go a 18 week season.
That would be fair, to the league and to the players, and to the fans.
The playoffs, would have to expand then also. By two weeks.
Yet, I see the preseason, still only needs to be 4 weeks long as for right now. The players does not get there contact money for the preseason games.
Yes, am sure they do get paid for there time. However, what if they get hurt?
You do not play you do not get paid, unless it is in your contact.
Look fans, the NFL, is a business. Matter fact the biggest sports business in the world. It only would make the owners more money. If they take two weeks from the preseason, and then add the two games to the playoffs.
