    AFC teams get to host the 17th game. Guess which AFC team hosts the Seahawks.....................


    The preseason will be reduced from four games to three to maintain compliance with the collective bargaining agreement, which limits the total number of preseason and regular-season games played to 20.

    There will remain one bye week per team. The season will begin on Thursday night, Sept. 9 and will end on Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022. The Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, Feb. 6, 2022 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and the Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles has been pushed back one week, from Feb. 6 to 13, 2022.

  • Did any player or fan want another game?

    I feel like this was rammed down everyone's throats by the owners, when most fans and players either don't care, or didn't want another game.

  • I have no complaints.

    We know that talks about a 17 game schedule have been going on for some time. We also know that the owners and player's union and the entertainment distribution industry all had discussions as to what needed to happen.

    Guess all the things that needed to happen were satisfied.

    The players voted to allow it. They shouldn't be whining all of a sudden because they got an increase in their share of the total revenue. That's what they agreed to.


    It's silly for the players to want to drop OTAs and training camps. Didn't they see all the soft tissue injuries that happened last year? If they don't practice hitting in a game setting, they're going to get blown up, and lose a year or 2 off their career from their bodies not being in shape.

  • Simple. Greed outweighs concern for healthy bodies. The players will be sorry later. Ownership...not so much.

  • 17 regular season and 3 pre-season.
    SuperbOwl moved to a week later. But if it falls on President's Day, many of us will get that day off we want and/or take anyway.

  • The 3rd preseason game was a lot like a regular season game, so not a big deal. It just means no more 8-8 seasons for any team.

  • Get rid of Thursday games then. Players hate those games. They barley have enough time to recover from their Sunday games. They act like they care about the athletes health. But they prove otherwise. Have a 18 games season. But gotta get away from Thursday games. Fans want to see their best players not get hurts.

    I'd be curious how much they hate them? It's almost like a mini by once your finished with it. I don't know why they just didn't add a second bye week into the schedule and play your Thrusday Night game coming back from a bye.

    That is another story but did you know OJ did 2k in a 14 game season
    in 1973?
    17 games will really pad those stats up for all :pukeface:

  • I can't help but wonder about the impact of an extended schedule and expanded travel on team priorities. Considerations such as skills trade offs, durability, persistence and such.

    It will be of interest to detect separation between teams as to how well they adapt to an extended schedule. There are those that believe that teams in recent years have already faltered because of injuries during stretch runs and going into playoff / elimination games.

    Things they are a changing.

  • My only real complaint with the 17th game is they didn't add a 2nd bye week. It would be nice for guys that suffered from early season injuries to have 2 extra weeks to recover before the playoffs. And with the extra wear and tear from An extra game, having that extra week off would help a lot. Plus, that means the season lasts another week, which means more revenue. Fans get more football, players get more rest, owners get more money. Win win win.

    Fans are the ones usually asking players (and not owners) to take less money, so the pro-owner mindset is also hilarious.

    The Players Association is all politics. The association could vote 51-49% one way and it doesn’t matter. If certain players are sucking up to owners or have more political control, the others will fall in line.

    The other alternative to players not agreeing to this would be a lockout. For starters, you would need the majority of players to agree (which is tough). Second, players would lose money. Third, fans would blame players more than owners. Because to many fans, players shouldn’t behave like capitalist shark like business men. They should take a pay cut and just be happy to get paid millions. As if it’s not a business.
