The NFL recently decided to go to a 17 game regular season schedule, and decrease the pre season to three games. I think pre season should have been knocked back to two, and a 16 game regular season was perfect.
The longer season means more injuries, more mediocre play, and a watered down product. It moves the Super Bowl into the middle of February, and that is way too late.
I'm sure the hard core fans and the television networks are happy. I understand that. It's all about the money, and I understand that, too. It's the American way.
I just people would understand, one day, that more isn't necessarily better.
