I absolutely agree. Bad idea.

More games/another league would be annoying. Thats part of the fun of football, every freaking game matters, not like basketball where theres so many a clump of ten just gets shrugged off

If he is smart he wont try to compete with the NFL, he will make his league an accessory to it.
Only the criminal element and their prison groupees would interested in something like that.

I like this idea if they are smart and don't try to actually compete with the NFL. I like it if they continue to put teams in markets without pro football. So you can have teams in Mexico City, Las Vegas and LA like mentioned, then maybe there are teams in Portland, Oregon, Hartford (the new UConn Stadium), Memphis, San Antonio, etc. It could work that way. I don't think anyone will ever be able to compete with the NFL. Ever. So they would be smart to simply try and work with them...
