    2 more teams to playoffs

    One of the things they will be talking about at the owner's meeting will be adding 2 more teams to the playoffs. Bringing it from 12 to 14. I think it would be a good thing.[] I was just wondering what the rest of you thought about this?

    Could be good, we'll have to see though. Would that make the playoffs a week longer? If thats the case then I'm all for it... 1 extra week of football!! hehe

    May as well make it be just like the NHL and have everyone make the playoffs. It's got to be worth fighting for.

    Chiefs | Playoff Expansion Proposal To Be Withdrawn - from www.KFFL.com
    Mon, 29 Mar 2004 09:41:47 -0800

    Adam Teicher, of the Kansas City Star, reports the Kansas City Chiefs will withdraw their proposal to increase the playoff field from 12 to 14 teams when the NFL's annual league meeting begin Monday, March 29. NFL officials made the request for the withdrawal, due to television consideration and the support of the competition committee. "They said they thought it would be an issue better posed for a future year," Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt said. Hunt has said the Chiefs will not give up on the expansion proposal and will push for the increase at the 2005 league meetings.

    When it s all said and done, you ll have to admit we re number 1!

    That's to bad ! I think since we are up to 32 teams in the NFL now. That they should let them expand the playoffs a bit. Well maybe next year.

    I agree it would take away from the playoffs and the season as there would be no bye-week to play for and that could mean alot of no meaning games the final two weeks of the sesson.
    can we clone Bud Grant?

    There still would be a bye week, except only for the #1 team in each conference. The #2 teams would have to play.

    At least it is not as bad as the NBA, where you can get in with a losing record, specially in the Eastern Conference.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
