Under the current proposed CBA, seven teams (instead of six) from each conference will make the postseason, with only one bye (instead of two) per conference.

It would go into effect this upcoming season.


Under the current CBA proposal that NFL owners are pushing for, the playoff field would be expanded to seven teams, while the regular season would be increased to 17 games per team, and the preseason shortened to three games per te

So the 17th game is the London/"international" game? Finally gonna make every team play there every year?

Are they trying to one-up the dumbass MLB proposal? Almost sounds like the same exact thing.

Makes the seeding more important. Only the number 1 seed will get a 1st round bye.

It's all just talk. The players have to agree to this proposal.

So this is where the players agree to the extra game in exchange for no longer being tested for marijuana

I am not in favor at all of going to 17 weeks in a season. I also do not want to see the playoffs expanded to 7 teams per conference. However, if either proposal is implemented, it won't decrease my fandom.

Pretty much.

In the past I said no to just about every change they proposed, including instant replay and the new overtime rule, only because I didn't want them to change what I was used to....but then I just got over it and never stopped watching (even if I threatened to stop watching when the changes were first made).
