    Not, under the 17 or 18 game format. Anyway, I would rather enjoy a road trip to Europe.

    Slipping? Really? Tell that to the broadcast networks: "Of the 20 highest-rated telecasts of any kind so far this television season, 18 have been N.F.L. games on CBS, NBC or Fox."

    The 18 game schedule will also fatigue the players more as they have stated and just open it up for injuries late in the season with potentially them missing the playoffs. Why not just cut the preseason ticket cost in half? We get half of product on the field so why not pay half price? Easy fix.

    I don't disagree. But NFL greed (players + owners) won't allow that to happen.

    If their economic model is based on ten home games per season, it makes a lot more sense to me, as a paying fan, to get to see nine games and just one exhibition for the same season ticket package.

    I don't particularly care for a full season of Thursday night football, or relocating an existing franchise to LA, but both are likely to also happen. It's a business.

    I dont like the 17 or 18 game season. I think it waters down the importance of each regular season game.

    And I understand the ripoff of preseason. But the truth of the matter is not all of those owners need those games to be financially solvent. I wonder what would happen if each team/owner was given the choice in the matter based ont heir own financial position?

    It would be interesting to see what teams do with the preseason. The ones that are greedy or need them, can have them, or require season ticket holders to purchase.

    The teams that need the revenue/want "game situation" practice can schedule it and charge what they like.

    Likewise, it would be interesting to see if/what teams from a personnel standpoint would really use preseason games, and which ones wouild prefer to rest their guys...
