100% there's going to be a strike.
Also, OP is making the mistake of thinking that the only risk is 'brain injury'.
Players don't want a 17th game because that's another 60m of risk for career-ending injury.
Another game at the end of the season, when most guys are carrying injuries anyway, adds more risk than the 1st game...it's not a linear risk progression, so 6-10% isn't worth it
You look at it all wrong, its not about 5 games or 8 or 16 or 17 its about plays
1000 plays is 1000 plays regardless of the games you clearly did not read my full post or are completely not comprehending my strategy I feel
