National Football League owners push for 18-game regular season

  • NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has pushed for an 18-game regular season along with team owners. But would players agree to this

The Wall Street Journal's Andrew Beaton reported this week that in a collective bargaining meeting between the National Football League and the NFLPA, owners pitched an idea for an 18-game regular season with a potential limit on each players appearances. This time around, owners have reportedly attached a 16-game limit for individual players to their proposal in order to assuage fears about the player-safety implications of two extra games.

While the concept of a future 18-game National Football League season is nothing new, with players objecting to the wear and tear of an added two games, the Wall Street Journal reported a potential compromise Friday. As Beaton notes, owner pushed for lengthening the regular season as part of the 2011 collective bargaining agreement negotiations - which resulted in an offseason lockout. Healthy star players could be forced to miss late-season games with playoff implications if they've already reached their 16-game limit.

Teams would have to stagger two games off for each of their players on the roster.

Il a ajouté un but en neuf matchs de séries éliminatoires avec les Blue Jackets. "Nous sommes heureux à Raleigh ". Aho a maintenant une raison de plus de se réjouir: un nouveau coéquipier talentueux nommé Ryan Dzingel.

The longer season would require a shortening of the preseason schedule, which is typically four games for teams. The NFL thinks this new proposal will actually help the players because they will be able to get larger contracts from the increase in revenue while not having to worry about an uptick in injuries.

Additional regular season games would generate billions in revenue, which would lead to increased salaries for players (and significantly increased profits for owners).

The idea of an 18-game season is nothing new.
