    I figure it's going to happen at some point. I can understand the frustration from a season ticket holder standpoint. They have to pay for the games which are pretty much pointless. I say expand to 18 games.
    And make the two preseason games at neutral sites. Maybe have one preseason game in a locale that doesn't have a NFL team in the US, and one internationally.
    Expand the roster to 60 players, expand the game day active roster to 53.
    If the 18 game season comes to pass, I can just see the offset language on contracts. Either a player won't play all 18 games, or they'll expect a bonus to do so.
    And while I'm fixing the NFL, move the pro bowl back to where it was. And the pro bowl should go to the winner of the Super Bowl. If the team wins this year's SB, they get the game next year.

    I've said that for years on the bye week. Half the league off week 8, the other, week 9. No advantage or disadvantage to anyone at all. Why they insist on doing it over a 10 week span is beyond me.

    If you're adding a game (or not), but add a bye and everyone gets a bye before their thursday night game as well.

    Good luck with that. No one will show up for a Pro Bowl in a place like Green Bay - in mid February. It's supposed to be a reward, not a punishment :) Pro Bowl should only ever been after the SB and in Hawaii.

    Definitely after the bowl. That was a lame change that made a laming game actually lamer. At this point might as well scrap it all together.

    I’m not sure I’ve watched a pro bowl this millennium. Doesn’t matter when it’s played.
