Audible_Red40 Posted February 11, 2011 Share Posted February 11, 2011 Mods, please feel free to move this to another thread if you deem it to be more suited there. I know it could go in a CBA thread, but the discussion is solely based on a specific topic and how "fans" preceive it. Also though it could stay in the Stadium, even though it's not purely Redskins related, but no different the the other threads popping up. None the less, Mr. Yee (T.Brady's agent) says he has a solution to the 18 game proposal, and that "This compromise will create even more interest from fans," So fellow Redskins fans, does his "solution" work for you? Like / dislike? Pros/ cons? http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/sports/2014191351_apfbnyeesettlingthecba.html I wont get into the rookie scale. But the 18 game solution: -Increase the roster from 53 players to 58, and make all eligible to play on game day; currently, only 45 can play. -Institute a rule that prohibits any player from appearing in more than 16 games. "This compromise will create even more interest from fans," Yee said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. "What two games will the head coach sit the starting QB? That's a discussion that will set sports talk radio airwaves afire. "This compromise will also be popular with coaches and general managers who want a greater opportunity to develop younger players," he said. "The NFL doesn't have a minor league, and this compromise will force meaningful participation by younger players on the roster. "Players also would endorse this because each would effectively get two bye weeks during the year. Bye weeks afford important healing time and personal time away from the game." Yee sees a lengthened regular season as a virtual free revenue stream for the league. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
