    Wrong, it was due for an extension, after the 2011 season. Yes, the owners opted out of the final season of the extension, but either it would have happened in 2010, or it would have happened in 2011.

    Right now, the argument is that the players do now want two more games for the regular season. I don't really get this argument because you play those games now, and they don't mean anything.

    A player can have a career ending injury in a pre-season game as easily as he can in a regular season game. If you are going to play the games anyway, make them worth something.


    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!

    I agree with this. I think way to much is being made of the 2 extra regular season games. Look at hockey. That is a very physical game not as physical as football but it still adds up and takes a tole on there bodies they manage to play 82 games a year Condering they would take 2 preseason games off I think that this is an overblown issue

    The problem I have with this is that it gives coaches two less weeks to evaluate talent and make final cuts.

    I agree, and it gives 2 less weeks for players to be evaluated.

    Two weeks can make a HUGE difference.
