    Or at least a neutral site like major cities without a team. Of course I’m sure NFL would push more international games.

    No beef with either move.
    I don’t think it will make for less quality play in weeks 16/17.

    Don’t see owners allowing teams the advantage of having an extra home game.

    Two preseason. 16 regular. Expand the playoffs to eight teams per conference with no bye for any team. I'd be okay with adding just one more team to the playoffs as well.

    Nothing, but Goodell is set on growth and keeps his job because of it.

    I dont like change for the sake of change, but the NFL does. Which means they will have to cash in on the new TV deal to avoid adding a game to increase revenue. The players hate the 16 games as is, no way they want 17.

    I like the idea of seeing of facing an additional opponent each year. and playoffs are super exciting so I'm all for having a better chance of getting in.

    In general I agree. NFL has almost the ideal setup and some of the expansion ideas Goodell has are awful (I.e. a team in London).

    they make billions every year. How can they not be content with being one of the most successful businesses out there? If anything, I see current expansion as a more likely gamble to cost viewers/money rather than gain. I would totally understand if there was an inclination of decline from the current profits, but expansion for the sake of expansion is a bad business move in my eyes.

    are people going to stop watching because of 1 extra team in the playoffs and 1 extra week of games? definitely not. the league knows this and wants to cash in.
