So the players and owners are talking about the future length of the season. The length of the preseason started all this. The owners are willing to eliminate 2 of the 4 preseason games but want to lengthen the regular season to 18 games to get the same gate $$. The whole point of killing those unnecessary preseason games was because guys were getting hurt unnecessarily in games nobody cares about. Adding 2 regular season games will only increase chances of injury because starters will be playing full time in those games giving 100%. I hate how the owners need something in return in order to do the right thing. If the players go along with this then it's their fault too. The right thing to do for the players sake healthwise and for the good of the game is to reduce the preseason to 2 games and KEEP the regular season at 16 games. Of course that won't happen because it's slightly less revenue and that won't fly.
