    How are they gonna do home/away games? I doubt that theres much of a market for the NFL in foreign markets for them to have every single team play a game in a foreign market

        How will they deal with home/away with an odd number of games? This is stupid.

            Yeah, it seems like Goodell really wants to make an emphasis on spreading the game overseas. I even herad on...sorry I don't remember which station...but that sometime after 2012 they are considering playing the Super Bowl in either Canada, Mexico City, or London.
            I like that he wants to spread the game over the world...but not when it takes away from the NFL in America.

              Won't happen. The outside pressure will be too great.

                How about they do this. Cut the Preseason down to two games. Give each team an extra game, and an extra bye. That should cut down on injuries suffered late in the year. It shortens the preseason(which many players want.) It also adds another regular season game, which any fan would be happy to watch. It is a win/win situation.

                  Bad idea, more injuries more worn out before the playoffs. No no no.

                    the new commish is trying to put his own stamp on the league. not sure if i like it, but if they cut a pre-season game i guess its okay. i think the overseas thing is crap though,

                        The idea of a 17th game is terrible if you ask me (To bad nobody does).

                        I do like the suggestion of an extra bye week during the season. I wouldn't mind seeing the preseason dropped to three games, but I think two is to few. While superstars certainly could deal with a 2 game preseason, it is an excellent opportunity for younger players to get time, fight for spots and improve.

                          Make the regular season 19 weeks
                          Cut 2 Preseason Games
                          Add 1 International week for all teams
                          Keep 8 homes games for all teams
                          Add 2nd bye week in for all teams

                          Everyone wins

                            Guys, the home/away thing is not a problem with an extra week, because it would be 8 home game, 8 away game, and 1 foreign game for all teams. Come on guys. And as many have mentioned, adding a bye and removing one or two weeks of preseason would completely make up for any injury concerns for ONE more game. I like the idea, do it.

                              I still don't like it. I'd rather keep in the US. Imagine a team flying over to London for a game. That's just too much. I don't like it in Canada because they have their own league for promoting the game, and Canadian fans pick up the Bills, Seahawks, and certain Midwest teams. I know that the CFL is not a top-notch league and is not widely popular, but still.

                                How about this: Find 16 international sites. Every team has week 1 at an international location, then there is a bye week for all teams. Then the season starts as normal. Instead of two preseason games you have an international game and a bye week.
