Make it so no player can play in more than 16 of 18 games and expand the roster.Think of the strategy that's needed. I think it would be exciting

Fans are going to support more games....I think they should expand the roster and play 18 games...with bigger roster many players might actually play less if you think about it and many players play 20+ games a season now if you consider preseason and playoff games so this idea two extra games is going to kill the players is meritless considering the game is safer than ever.

From what I see this CBA is horrible for the sport. It's going to lead to more injuries.

Don't ruin the record books over the sake of 1 more game and money. If games and money is the issue then add more teams. For every 2 additional teams that is 16 extra games a year and no records are destroyed. Plenty of great cities across America than could support a team.

I say make these players earn the millions. So you don't want to risk brain damage, then don't collect your paycheck easy. Not everyone has the option. I mean, of course these players don't want to work harder for the same amount of money, who would.

And do you knoe if other players request like healthcare are worth more than that 25%? I just don't have trust with the owners side so will agree with what the players do eventually.

No bro, preseason gets you to the final 53 roster and most teams before game 3 of preseason have over 75 players on the roster, nothing better than actual game time.

So what was the bad things from the last deal , what was so bad about it, its probably the same thing, you keep saying the last deal was so bad so what was so bad about it, that's not a secret anything lol it probably money, its always about money and that's the problem with unions these days , it's just a big money grab and with the players today it's all about the super stars, the one percenters, it's all about what's best for them and damn the middle class and the poor , sound familiar 🤷🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️

The funniest part is they bitched about the previous proposal. They got a good bit of what they wanted.. pay wise the main thing they wanted.. and it back fired on them. Instead of the money that was saved, by cutting rookie salaries, they expected it to be going to veterans.. but all it did was make teams cut veterans and buid around more rookies.. I'm sorry but that's what happens when your average player IQ is under a 100. They will swing the other way wanting this or that.. and the owners and gms will out think them again.. and so on and so forth.. they will focus on the wrong things. And not realize that the owners are planning on what they need in, to help them.. they need to get the lawyers the mlb players use...

Why can't a player rep simply create a burner account and leak the bad parts of the deal on Twitter like everyone else does? It would be the easiest way for the public to know without putting a name to it.

This is getting ridiculous. The Players are 100% getting under paid, and have been for a while. The amount of play time, not to mention the shorter life span, and after taxes, a guaranteed 80 Mil contract is only 45 Mil take home. Non guaranteed contracts? Forget about it. This is why the XFL will take over, and pretty soon. Rules are better, games are better. The NFL is getting too cocky, and spreading way too thin, when that happens to any Corporation, it implodes. How can they spread this sport Global, when they cant even decide what Pass Interference is? The NFL is an international laughing stock.

I'd rather have 3 super bowls kind of like the nbas 7 game final. So it's best of three would probably better for the majority of the players as only two teams make it so it's a small majority who have to play.

The NFL should have made the pre season 2 games , 18 game regular season with an extra bye week and a 7th wildcard while increasing salaries on a sliding scale from 15% for bottom earners 5% for top 10%, expand rosters by 4players
It’s easy for top players to play hardball and no workforce wants to hear top paid guys riding a high horse over a contract negotiation

No, sorry, but you will never win over your average football fan crying over that kind of thing.
B0NECLAW - Місяць tagasi
Most fans are stupid and don't know shit. 16 games is more than enough. People who have played the game on any organized level should understand this. But I agree, The NFLPA needs to be transparent on what it is that they're against.

When Future billionaires like Bron act like they are slaves and say STUPID shit all the time and act like Victims it ruins it for everyone. Don't try to act like a Victim if you are a top paid guy. Watt is not helping the players. Guy has played like 1 season last couple and is fully paid his high salary while out the whole year

What is interesting is the high profile guys are coming out against this, but you aren't hearing anything from the minimum salary guys.

The proposal here is something that cuts against this divide. It goes to a vote, after all.

Idc, to get paid MILLIONS to play a damn football game is ridiculous!! I pipeline, away from my family 11 days in a row, then im home 3 days then go back to work. So, i see my family 6 days a month! BUST MY ASS ALL DAY! And i make a little over $8,000 a month. That’s it! Which, is MORE than enough money for any person! These guys are making MILLIONS!!! Fuck, the president makes $400,000 a year! Players are a bunch of winers, and I’ll stand by that always! Like to see them players come to work with me once, then, they’d be a little more appreciative of what they got. Get use to 5 million a year. Imagine only getting $1,500-$2,000 a week. They’d NEVER MAKE IT!

If the NFL wants to add games, you have to extend rosters. Injuries being the key reason over an even longer season proposed. I say go to 60 man Rosters.

I wish they would expand the rosters to 5-7 more guys able to dress and about 5 more guys on the practice squads. That way they can endure a long season a little bit better.

I have to say football players are just too stupid because they concentrated on football instead of business and and negotiating. The owners are not any smarter but they know one thing and that is to find the best representatives and make a cohesive strategy. The NFL PA will cave in because they have no clue.
Wolfblaze - Місяць tagasi
Players will never win the PR battle. Majority of fans think they're over paid whiners. If they don't like it go find a new career the fans will watch whoever ends up on the field. Look and browns and XFL fans. 🏈 is 🏈

We still dont care what the players thinks. Jj watt calling it a ni means absolutely nothing to football fans. Jj watt rarely even plays the full 16
Victory Saber

I think a extra playoff game as opposed to 18th game is fine. The fans actually would care. The last few games are crap. 1 teams fans will be excited. Viewers will care. Another empty stadium and 12 useless games cause the seeds are decided already. It sounds like the robert Downey's wanting 50 million a movie and the players want outstanding money.

No one wants to accept that the owners have all of the leverage in negotiations, always. It doesn't matter where public sentiment lies. The players will be forced to capitulate. Without the shield, where could Dak Prescott dream to receive 35mil annually. There are no options for players outside the NFL. Furthermore, most owners have outside resources and their teams are vanity props, Very, very liquid vanity props.

The owners might want a 17th game for the TV money, but by the end of the season, there are a bunch of terrible teams with losing records that are just looking to end it already, and their fans don't want to have to watch another putrid performance and have the luxury of looking forward to next season.
Patrick Kabler
Patrick Kabler - Місяць tagasi
I agree with the new schedule. As a fan, I like the fact of an extra team in the playoffs, and the extra regular season game I like. That's the whole reason for having depth on the roster. If you need to make it so teams can keep more players on the roster instead of the 53 or whatever it is.
Isaiah Ramirez

250K cap for the 17th game should be all anyone needs to know to fight for the players. That’s highway robbery for the superstars and (especially) veterans who would be making anything above that

3 years ago all the tv personalities were saying that they expected a strike before the new CBA. Now all you hear is about how great the deal is. If I remember from the last CBA the biggest issue was that the NFL owners were not releasing all the records for revenue. Only the big things like TV deals. So they say the NFL makes 32 billion a year and splits that at 48% for the players, but with all the hidden accounting the owners make another billion or two that they don't tell the players about. This is the issue the players had.

Honestly, screw the NFL and the players. Put them in a kit and have them run around in a combat zone for 32 grand a year. Pro - athletes are the biggest cry babies. I was in Iraq the last time they went on strike. Haven't watched the NFL since.
