It reminds me of the philosophical question about the ship. You have a ship. A board wears out, so you replace it with a new one. You keep doing this until eventually every single board has been replaced. Is it the same ship?

Is it the same game, even now? When I went to Canton a couple of years ago I was surprised with how little the game we watch now resembles football in its early years.

Greed is and will certainly negatively affect us. At the same time, the profitability of the NFL is the reason it's still broadcast on channels like ABC/Fox/NBC while basketball is signing deals with networks no one can even see.

Tough issues

That's just it. Goodell and/or the owners could lock themselves in a cellar for 15 years and the NFL would still be a mega-profitable multi-billion dollar business.

Don't try to fix what's not broke.

That is where I'm coming from. Goodell would go for it, IMO.

Default Re: Goodell says playoffs could expand

The NFL is by the nature of the sport a single elimination playoff. Unlike the NBA or MLB where you can have a best of 7 series that gives you a better chance of determining the best team over the course of a playoff.

Because of the single elimination, any given Sunday, the playoffs should be restricted to a minimum number of teams.

In other words, don't fix it if it ain't broke.
