Expanded Season - Will They or Won't They and Should They



With all the talk of expanding the NFL season to 18 or possibly 17 games, I was interested in what everyone here at DBN thought. Obviously there are many factors to consider. Money and player heath seem to be 2 issues always at the forefront of the discussion. One facet of this discussion that IMO should also be considered is will we, as fans, be getting the same level of product or will we be just getting more of an inferior product.

Many questions have come to me for which I have no answers.

Does the season start earlier or end later?

Does the NFL add a 2nd bye week?

Does the roster size grow?

Will this create a bigger divide between teams records or will they gravitate toward the center?

How would this affect the playoffs...Same teams every year or more of a rotation?

Could this affect the playoffs (more or less games)?

Will this make it more or less likely for future expansion teams?

These are just a few that came to mind, please discuss and add your own. My first post so any suggestions are welcome.

Side note: Will there be football next year?
