The NFL is considering shortening the pre-season by one game.  Good news?  Sure it is.  The pre-season is too long.  Here is what they want to do.  The NFL wants to add a 17th game to the current 16 game regular season schedule.

Again that seems like good news to the hard-core fans that want more meaningful football.  Well here is the catch.  The NFL would make that 17th game an international game.  That’s right.  Your favorite NFL team would play one of their (17) games out of the country?

I am talking to players to get their input but what do you think?  In today’s NFL money grabbing no team is willing to give up a huge cash producing home game to play a regular season game on the road.

Do you think asking the players to fly internationally for a game is too much or do you like it?
