In addition to wanting 18 games a season, no kickoffs, and making the game trend toward something unrecognizable, NOW Goodell wants to open up the playoffs to another 2-4 teams
Yes, if he has his way, and he eventually will, a full HALF of all teams will make it to the post season!. Isn't the playoffs supposed to be hard to make it to? Wouldn't having HALF of the teams participating in it just kind of water down & degrade the whole thing?
You are supposed to be the elite, going head to head to show who is best. HALF the league is not elite.
But more playoff teams equals more revenue due to likely more interest from participating teams fans. If your team is in it, you will watch it. Maybe someday it'll be a single game elimination contest for all 32 teams and everybody gets a trophy!
I am not a bandwagon team, but I really think I'll stop watching this sport soon after Brady/Belichick retire. Not cuz I don't want to sit through rebuilding years, but because the game will be SO changed by then I simply won't want to watch it anymore. It's almost like that now and trending in the wrong direction
Hopefully his ideas will be shot down, but I doubt it. The owners love him
