since68andcounting Posted September 9, 2011 Share Posted September 9, 2011 I finally figured out who the entity pushing so hard for the 18 game schedule was. It became VERY clear in the interview with Costas and Goddell. It certainly ain't the players or the coaches, they've made their wishes known. It really isn't the fans, most feel that the season is long enough with playoffs...etc. The only thing the ticket holders complain about is paying full price for exhibitions. Which is a valid point. But as a 40 year ST holder I STILL prefer that to 18 games. The season is perfectly balanced as is.It isn't even really the owners. They are already getting full price and their star players are priceless commodities that can't be overused. So if all those parties are against it, why would the league be for it? The truth is they really aren't, their MASTERS are. Yes...it became VERY obvious the way Costas threw out those leading questions...I present to you the guilty party ladies and gentleman of the jury. They are known most commonly as.......THE NETWORKS.TV stands to make a HUGE increase in revenue on an 18 game schedule. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
