However, I happen to really like the intensity, and the sort of make or break situation each game in a shortened schedule is. Games matter now from start to finish. Giving up points to a team on overtime is a partial loss. Does anyone else feel this way?
I know the argument of a shortened season will all factor back to money. Owners will not give up games. But I was thinking:
Play each team in your division 4 times= 16 games
Each team in your conference outside your division 2 times = 20 games
Play each team in the other conference twice 15 x 2= 30 games
66 game season. No one gets advantages on travel. Fans get to see every team. Owners lose 8 home games.
Win/win. Except of course for the owners. But if revenues are tied to salaries anyway, what's the issue?
Just a thought.
