Yeah but imagine the money. And the TV contracts. And the fans who would come into the NFL because in today's day and age, everyone deserves a shot and a trophy. In 20 years thwere will be no contact, no winners or loser, and every game will end in a tie, every team will make the playoffs and at the end of the season no one wins.

but the only way the players can survive an 18 games schedule + playoffs is if the league bans tackling.

The league is trying to secure all the money it can because they believe a huge payout is possible with the lawsuits over concussions.
The 32 are very worried about the courts digging into their pockets. I have no doubt the playoff teams will increase for the benifit of the fans and player safety of course

Somebody shoot this man.



This was Goodell's quote:

"If I cant have an 18 game schedule I'll just make the whole league qualify for the playoffs"

This is just a desperate, transparent attempt to change the subject, as Florio says.

Remember how he waited to announce the Payton punishment until 5 minutes after Tebow was traded to the Jets?

Half the teams making the playoffs is why the NBA and NHL suck. MLB finally got it right and the NFL has had it right.

Let everyone play 20 games (16+3+1) and give everyone a trophy for participation.
