That is just our gut on the little we've heard from some players about it, but it won't really matter. The money will most assuredly be on the table, presumptuously. We do not believe in diluting the playoffs, but we do agree with record gets home field before division winner.
Although it would probably not garner as solid as ratings. Instead of diluting the top end. Have a seminfinals between the 4 worst teams and they play to see who get the 1st overall pick. Conceptually its off with their mode of thought with the worst record receiving the number one, but the winner is awarded it. Just trying to think of what to give the commissioner in order to not do this. Expanded season plus explanded playoffs. Perhaps these teams will be (weird saying it) 10-8? Maybe that makes iit simply 'okay.'
|NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell answers questions during a news conference at the NFL football annual owners meetings|
Goodell said Wednesday at the spring meetings that ''it's not out of the question.'' He says he ''wouldn't rule it out, but I wouldn't say that's the direction we're heading.''
The owners discussed adding two playoff teams to the current 12, one in each conference. The topic is certain to come up when Goodell meets with the players union April 8, and again at the owners' May meeting in Atlanta.
