If a 17 game schedule is implemented I see every team playing a International game either in Mexico or London. It’s the only way to keep a fair balance of home field advantages.

How many more compensatory draft picks will the New England Patriots be awarded if the league adopts a 17 game schedule?

There are other potential sites in US for neutral game.

I've love 17 real games, especially if it meant a couple fewer pre-season games.

 

What fan wouldn't?

 

Let the NFL season get here a bit sooner each year and stay a bit longer.

 

Now if we could just eliminate pre-season games entirely...

Lose a preseason game. Replace with a real game. Expand the playoffs.

That's where preseason games should be played.

1 per additional game per team seems like the most reasonable starting point?

No, still need two games teams are rusty as hell as it is, none would make it worse.

 

Plus some players are gamers and dont do as well in practice and teams need to find those guys out in preseason.

Can we just cut to the chase and implement an 18 game season and a 2 preseason game schedule already?

 

Oh and up the roster size to 60.

On point 3, they forgot “resistance is futile.”

Yes, but how many ‘double secret’ picks for NE?  I call it ‘Picks for Pats*’.  😁

EDIT:  I see how that can be interpreted two ways.  🙂

Or they would just rotate what teams get the extra home game every year.

Dont need more games. 

 

Have 3 preseason games and add a second bye week. It would give us 1 more week of real football.

 

Also all 2 more wild card teams and have only 1 team in each conference get the get a bye week in the playoffs.

If you did that prices would go up and down since additional game a year and I do not think league would like that.

It would be screwy for free agents too - do I take an offer from team with 8 home games this year or 9?
