    Re: 18 Game NFL Season Looks Likely to Happen

    I for one am happy whenever we get to see more football.

    On a side note, alot of the same issues came up when we went from 14 to 16 games.

    a. Injuries
    b. Salaries
    c. Records
    d. Start/Stop dates for season
    e. etc etc

    I am sure the same issues came up when we went to 14 games, even though I don't remember that.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Perfect expanded-schedule compromise: 17 games


    Judge brings up some good ideas in his compromise. Still 3 games to judge "fringe" players, the extra game could be a nuetral site: international, or in one of many huge, nice college stadiums, and, the 'home' team wouldn't lose a home game.

    Midgensa's comment on playing conference games to help sort tie breakers led me to an idea? Division title games!!

    So, say, if the season ended today, god forbid! With the two best records, the Pack would play at the Bears for our division title in the 17th game. Winner gets the division, but loser can still qualify for the wildcard if their record merits it. OMG you could play the same team 4 Times!! Not sure about that, but otherwise, the home team earns it, or is played at a nuetral site? And, its an exciting game you want to watch: division rivals with playoff implications on the line!

    Combine this with Judge's idea and we might have found the answer right here on PPO!!?
