    Tnf needs to end and I'm as big a football fan as there is. But they also can't criticize the officiating. It was such a sham and screw job but nothing at all will come of it.

    Why not do FNF instead of TNF?

    Get rid of the preseason games...make them count. No more TNF.

    The players would revolt if they tried to make them play 20 regular season games.

    TNF is a ratings disaster and the players hate the games. Not a good combo.
    And the idiot owners rewarded Goodell with a five year contract extension worth $200 million. There's not many things I agree with Jethro Jones on, but this was one of them.

    They play the pre season games. They get hurt in the pre season games...they just don't count.

    They don't play to win and the starters don't play hardly at all. Mostly rookies and free agents trying to make a roster. But the teams charge full price for them and include them in the season ticket package.
    A player can get hurt on any place but the chances are less for somebody like Drew Brees if he isn't in the game.

    All TNF and international games must come after a bi-week... Problem solved.

    Won't work under the current format.
    You'd have to go to two bye weeks because you would have already used your bye week and therefore after the Thursday you'd have to play your next game three days later on Sunday.
