18-Game Season: Mo’ Money, Mo’ Money, Mo’ Money

In response to a recent article regarding the proposed 18-game season as posted by ProFootballTalk.com

It’s not as simple as it sounds just adding two regular season games in place of two regular season games. This is part of the current TV deal already in place (20-game slate). If the players and owners agree to two more games it is a win-win financially for all! TV gets more money, owners get more money, players get more money, and fans get more football!

The problem is TV gets more money, the owners get more money, players get more money (and injuries, thus the trade-off), and the fans spend more money! (but get more football too!)

As the saying goes, “It’s NOT about the money, it’s about the MONEY!” (yes, I wrote that correctly)
