I see lots of problems with the 17th game. 16 teams get an extra home game, how much will that factor into the playoffs? Sure they will rotate the extra home game each season but the guys won't be happy. And when it comes to the playoffs, will they reseed after each round? What about rosters? The players have always said they want an expanded roster if the NFL goes to 17 games. I see lots of work to get this CBA finalized.
Maybe they'll do one neutral site game for each team? 16 chances to expand the fanbase.
I do not think they will do a neutral site game as the home team would lose out on the revenue generated in ticket, merchandise and beverage sales. If they want to expand fan bases they should eliminate the cable exclusivity mandates so other teams can be seen in one team's home area.
