- 14 team playoffs in 2020 - 17 game schedule in 2021 (1 less preseason game) - 1 franchise tag per team (no transition tag) - fewer practices - higher thresholds for THC testing and no resulting suspensions for positives
players barely passed, with a 1019-959 majority (51.5%). sadly, around 500 current players did not vote at all. can you imagine 20% of the owners not voting on their own labor agreement?
More games will result in more money for the players. The players can be better protected with less practices. The one franchise per team is a win for the players, which a majority will be QB’s (thinking out loud). Players can’t be suspended for weed anyone, and that is long overdue.
3. "17th game really fucks up the perfectness of the NFL schedule" In response to Reply # 0 Mon Mar-16-20 10:57 AM by Oak27
The current 16 game schedule -Inter-division opponents twice (6 games) -One other division in conf (rotating) (4 games) -One other division in opposite conf (rotating) (4 games) -Teams from other divisions in conf who finished at same seed (2 games)
Where does that 17th game come from? Does NFL just decide what games would make the best primetime games? Is it random? Rotated?
And now every team plays an uneven amount of home and away games? I'm assuming London/Mexico/etc games will now be "neutral" games, but we aren't having 16 of those games a year... or fuck, ARE WE??
"The letter from attorneys Ben Meiselas and Ray Genco highlights a difference in wording in the section about the league's disability plan that affects hundreds, and potentially thousands, of ex-players who applied for Social Security disability insurance payments before Jan. 1, 2015. In the version the players received and approved, those offsets applied only to players who applied after Jan. 1, 2015."
This is disgusting that the owners tried to pull a fast one over the players, and the NFLPA agreed to it. The new CBA, based on the new language, means that disabled ex players will get less money than the money they would have gotten under the CBA that the players agreed upon.
