NFL Expected To Increase Regular Season To 17 Games, Players React On Twitter


Recommended Posts

The NFL is expected to officially increase the number of regular-season games from 16 to 17, according to a new report from Adam Schefter. A number of NFL players voiced their displeasure with the move on Twitter, Sunday. 

"NFL is expected to expand the regular season schedule this week to 17 games," Schefter tweeted. "The league had played a 16-game regular season schedule since 1978, by far the longest stretch without a change in NFL history."

"Shit dumb... as hell..," replied Saints running back Alvin Kamara.

Former NFL wide receiver Torrey Smith also criticized the decision, citing the high injury numbers with just 16 games on the schedule: "17 games in the NFL is great for [money emoji] but they are going to have to adjust practices and what a regular offseason looks like. Dudes were already falling apart playing 16. As a whole this is great but adjustments have to be made."

Last year's collective bargaining agreement gave owners the ability to increase the regular season length to 17 games. The owners are expected to vote yes on the move during virtual league meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

Green Bay Packers safety Adrian Amos, Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay, and Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan all lambasted the decision on Twitter as well.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
