    NFL season expands to 18?

    Associated Press

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Bill Polian says the 18-game NFL season is a done deal.

    During Monday night's weekly radio show, the Indianapolis Colts' president called it a "fait accompli" and said the debate is over. Polian is a member of the league's competition committee and has worked in the league office.

    Polian is concerned that getting rid of two preseason games to expand the regular season from 16 to 18 games will cost coaches and team officials opportunities to evaluate rookies. The solution, Polian said, might be hooking up with nearby teams for combined practices or controlled scrimmages.

    League owners and the commissioner have expressed support for an expanded regular-season schedule, but they haven't said a decision has been made.

    Personally, I'm against this seeing that the current organization of expanding schedules is as fine as it is. I assume that the majority of NFL players disagree to this as well. I would be fine with a 19-game season as there can be interconference faceoffs of the team that ranked the same place as the opposing team in the preceding season.

    I'm in favor of the 18 game regular season.

    4 preseason games is too much. Especially since the NFL franchises charge the same ticket price for all 4 preseason games as they do for a regular season game.
