Personally, I think an 18 game regular season is a bad idea to begin with and I am not sure they are ever going to get the players fully on board with it. The players get beat up enough as it is during a 16 game schedule.

I agree the preseason is probably too long, but the thing with that is the regulars see minimal playing time during most of those games and teams generally running pretty vanilla offenses and defenses in those games.

I just do not see the benefit to expanding the season other than filling the league's coffers with more money. In the long run it probably hurts the on field product a lot more than it helps it.
