I’ve heard all the arguments against it and I’m all for it. I think the NFL is the only business that could make you pay full price for an inferior product. I’m talking about the last pre season game. With ticket prices as much as 400 dollars a game, why should you be forced to pay for the backups? Make that a regular season game, and the one before it as well. If the players complain, get other players, they’ll come. In fact the players won’t complain because they’ll get more money, as if the millions they are already getting are not enough. As for what happens to them in the future, that’s the price you pay for the present. They know that going in. There are many other jobs, for much less pay where the risk of debilitating injuries including death are greater but men just suck it up and do it. Police, Firemen, Soldier,etc
I love the 18 game season. Start it in September and take it right to the Super Bowl on President’s weekend. The Monday after the Super Bowl is the most called out sick day of the year. Not if it were played on Presidents weekend, The weekend we celebrate with mattress and electronic sales. With the Super Bowl, we’d have more reason to buy those televisions, as for the mattresses, don’t forget it’s also Valentine’s Day.
