18-game schedule appears certain now

NFL.com ran a “Breaking News” banner across the top of its home page Wednesday night. The breaking news? According to Jason La Canfora, the league and NFLPA had a very positive discussion about the 18-game season. (The fact that the discussion took place Monday probably means this news isn’t “breaking”, but hey, can you blame the league for wanting to capitalize on a positive labor story for a change?)

In short, it looks like a virtual guarantee that the 18-game season will happen. In exchange, the players want less offseason commitments and less contact in practices. The idea is that the decrease in non-game contact will even out the impact of two more regular season games.

La Canfora writes,” The source said a great deal of progress must be made before the sides are close to an agreement, but the pace of the negotiations could be accelerating. There's no word on when the next talks will be held.”

Goodell is a hypocritical incompetant imbecile.  All his talk of player safety has been 100% posturing to make himself look better.  His other choices such as this prove he doesn't actually give one ---- about it.

First, there's something funky about the way this page is being displayed right now.  It's making it hard to read the posts, just a little bit.  I like the current preseason format, and I'm not alone.  The problem is injuries, and there's nothing here that would suggest that the new format would change that.  This situation favors owners and the league.  Until the economy returns full swing, young men across the nation will be keeping pro football as a career in the back of their minds.  The NFL players can't win, and the league will go forward with whatever plans it has whether it's good for the players or not.  Whoever posted about the fines for another 2 weeks...that was funny!  Laughing

It might be awhile, over here in europe we`re 6 hours ahead of the good od US of A. I would love an 18 game season, preseason is boring, and it would force the pros in there off season time to take care of they`re bodies. They earn enough $. And maybe the NFL will finally have a game in mainland europe.

BigBlue....do you feel superior when correcting someone's grammar?  Because you did we all now you're far smarter than the rest of us! I'll start sending everything I post to you first; this way I can rest assured that it will be correct.
