  1. So what the owners are offering and want: The owners' proposal features a 17-game season, shorter preseason, larger rosters and limits on the number of international games, increases in minimum salaries, changes in practice squad makeup and eligibility, and reduced offseason and preseason requirements as pivotal parts of the deal. An expansion of the playoffs to seven teams in each conference, with only the top seed in the AFC and NFC getting a wild-card bye,as long as the postseason remains in a four-week format. Several owners are strongly in favor of doing so regardless of the CBA status. The 17-game schedule actually is a compromise offer for some owners who wanted 18 games. Adding the one regular-season match would seem to indicate each of those games would be at a neutral site.But the league has promised the union to cap the number of international games and that there would not be a full week of such contests. More likely is a continued mix of games in England (and other European sites) and Mexico. Most team schedules will have nine home games and eight road games in alternating years. The preseason would be reduced from four games to three, not counting the Hall of Fame game that starts the exhibition schedule.Training camp padded practices would be reduced from a total of 28 to 16. A five-day acclimation period would precede summer practices. There would be more days off during camp - eight instead of five - and a limit on joint practices. Rosters would expand from 53 to 55, with 48 players able to dress for games rather than the current 46. Practice squads would go from 10 players to 12 and eventually to 14, probably by 2022. There would be more flexibility for protecting practice squaders from becoming free agents. Suspensions for a positive test for marijuana likely would end, except for cases of tampering with a test. But doctors appointed by the league and union would have the ability to recommend players sit if they are not under treatment or are at risk if they suit up. Significant boosts in pension for retired players and active ones also are provided in the contract.
  2. They just have make sure that every team plays one neutral game and give up one home game every other year. With the extra regular season game. This shouldn't be a problem, because each other season, they have one more home game than they do now.
  3. Thats why i think the idea of making the extra game being the Neutral site games. That way they know they have the Bye week before and there could be a few Neutral games that week. Good for promoting the game and $$$
  4. Yes, totally agree with all that. The Out of Country games are good for the League. Two bye weeks per team is good for the players. Reducing the the Pre-season games is good for everyone. Like someone on here was saying, have the Pre Season game the week before going out of country. I like it for Fantasy too, having a extra week for league play is great !
  5. Actually, the NHL format is good. Only 50% of the teams make the playoffs.
  6. Agree, make the out of country or city games the Thursday games and give them the bye after. Could really work well for the NFL
  7. I would love to see the extra game. I'm not a fan of adding playoff teams though. I would like to see them give only 1 Bye week per team and use that extra game as a Neutral Game. Different country. Than get their byes right after that,. As for Fantasy Football. I would love to try to come up with a new Schedule format if they have the extra week.
  8. i also heard that they were looking at adding one game to the Regular season, but that game being a neutral site (other countries or cities). Than having those teams getting their bye week after the travel week. I love that idea.
  9. I'll have to agree with you on the playoff format. I like the NFL format at the moment. But I think (selfishly) it would be a lot of fun to have a extra game per team. Its neat to think about when it comes to Fantasy Football. I don't mind the cold weather games. I think most of the fans in the NFL are weak and spoiled. Sometimes when the games are cold, the more true fans come out and it's usually a bigger party. lol
  10. I guess the NFL is looking to add two teams to the NFL format and the owners would like to push for a extra week in the Regular season. Love to hear what you guys think and what does this do to fantasy leagues? I'm curious how the extra week in the Reg Season would change how the schedule would look like and if adding members to the league would work.
  11. I'm in tough this week and just trying to compete. I'm getting killed with injuries and it all started with Luck retiring. LOL. Deep 16 team league. RB - As my number 2# Edmonds, Chase ARI or Mostert, Raheem SFO WR - Brown, A.J. TEN WR or Renfrow, Hunter OAK Starting - Freeman, Royce / DEN Moore, D.J. CAR WR / Metcalf, DK SEA WR I have one flex. So I could go with 3 RB's instead of 3 WR's

  13. I'm getting a trade offer for Jaylen Samuels. Who do you do you like from these offers? Tarik Cohen / Frank Gore / Phillip Lindsay / Alexander Mattison? I have Royce Freeman, Saquan Barkley, Raheem Mostert along with Jaylen Samuels. at the moment. (Deep 16 team league)
  14. Sorry guys, where do I put these questions up? He really wants Samuels, (Pitt fan). So I like to make the deal, but if I do (since I'm hurting on RB). I want to get the best I can. So Lindsay I guess?
