Well, an 18 week/17 game schedule presents a problem. Uneven home/away games. There is no even split unless every team plays one neutral site game. The season is long enough already. To me, this is a ploy by owners and the NFL to line their pockets with more cash. Do the players get 1/17th more money added to their contracts? Wouldn't the NFLPA have to approve it too? So many sticking points, I just don't see it.
