    The league is set up wonderfully with the 32 teams. But, it seems as if LA will get a team...

    Playing with odd teams is weird. One team gets only 15 games? It would be cool for 2 cities to get new teams if they want to expand.

    Lord, no new teams. Too many teams at the bottom as it is.

    Let's not go the way of the NHL and MLB....

    no, it just means every week there will be at least one team with a bye, including the first and last week of the season.

    I don't understand why LA is such a priority with the NFL. Most of the people I know in LA don't care if they have a team or not. Its just not a football town.

    toronto will never get an expansion team, as long as the bills are still in buffalo. toronto will be claimed as buffalo's territory.

    I think if the NFL goes international it would be Mexico. They keep playing exibition games there and even had a regular season Sunday night prime time game there this year.

    32 teams divided between 8 divisions is a perfect balance. I can't believe that they would screw up the equilibrium, much less add another team that further dilutes the talent pool. They should just wait and move an existing team to LA if they have to have a team. It's only a matter of time before an owner demands a stadium that the taxpayers won't give him.

    I don't think Toronto would be able to support an NFL team, besides know one really wants to play in Canada, look at the Raptors and all the franchise players they have lost

    No it would be like the 3 years the league had 31 teams (1999-2001), you would have at least one team on a bye every single week. That includes the first and last weeks of the season. They usually give the last place teams from the previous year the very early and very late bye weeks.
