So with the new CBA being close to agreement (argue all about if they're close or not, not the point of this poll):

It is rumored to contain 17 game seasons and 1 bye week per team. 18 week season.

What week are you going to have your championship game in?

Probably still avoid the last week for competition, so week 17 instead of 16 like we do now.

I voted for 16, at least for the first season of an 18 game season. I tend to think the extra game for everyone would likely mean more meaningless games at the end of the year.

it might.

If anything, it's going to birth the term "load management" in the Main Tank which is going to be fun

So what does the new 17th game entail schedule wise?

Right now the 16 game system is really clean.

Six division games
Four games vs another same conference division
Four games vs another other conference division
Two games vs the remaining same conference division teams that placed the same the previous year (1st vs 1st, etc).

So what would the new system look like? I get wanting more games because more money, I'm just curious what the new 17th game would be.

And where it would be played. Is it possible that those extra 16 games are all played internationally (Mexico, London, etc)?

If not, it's creating a home field advantage for half of the teams every season.

They don't all have to be international but I'd bet most of them would be.

They could also hold games in neutral cities that don't have NFL teams - St. Louis, San Antonio, Portland, etc.

but don't listen to me, I'm still mad they got rid of the Central Division. I miss the Cardinals being in the NFC East and the Falcons in the West.

i'd love to see expanded roster sizes, both overall and active on game day.

I'd feel bad for the Colts.

King of the short bus.


Also, Chiefs in the North, oh hell no.

And RIP the Redskins. Never have a chance again in that division.

if the league wants to go to 17 games, give each team 2 bye weeks during the season. eliminate 2 preseason games per team.
