So for some years now the NFL has been wanting to go 17 games, the NFL gets more money, the owners , and other corp people in the NFL, also then the players get a 6 to 10% bump in pay, on top of the slight increase they already get with the salary cap going up each year, and when you look at those million dollar salaries, that is a big progression. Now the problem is the players, and rightfully so absolutely do not want it, because you have this issue with traumatic head injuries via concussions and other impact events through games and practice. For them that extra game each season is an extra game for that type of injury to the head. Plus for players that are good and great, they will have career of 8,9,10, sometimes 15 plus years, so that extra game a season is like half or close to all of a full season over their profession. I thought of a solution, I am not saying no other person in the world ever thought of this, but only person I have heard mention this is me and I said it on my local sports radio show 106.7 the Fan in VA, host was supporting it and I listened after my call for about 40 minutes via driving time and then 14 minutes or whatever at home on my computer and maybe 3 callers brought up the topic and all liked my idea a lot. I say this not to try to impress people I do not know on a MMA forum off topic discussion. More that I want to show that so far others are really liking this. We are entering the 2020 football season, probably this will happen in 2021 if they can agree to it for the new CBA by March 18th, if not then its like a free agency thing with the NFL and the NFLPA, who is getting a different general, and if they still are not getting the CBA done a strike could happen. They do not seem to be too far apart or too close, more in a reasonable range in negotiations, a few big factors need to be figured out and this game addition is maybe the biggest factor. The ideas I hear they are talking about are silly and do not work in reality, they are talking about cutting down pre sesaon games, lol top players already are skipping most of the pre season and its about regular season numbers of plays. This will get very wordy because of my desire of detail so I will break it into at least 2 posts for my presenting my OP, I appreciate you giving your time and comments. It is the discussion where you see the reactions that helps guide us to discard, achieve approval, or tune an idea to keep progress fluent I feel.
