    Quick thought, were the players happy with the league adding another game. Another game means more work, more strain on your body. With the pandemic going on, do you think players used this as a means to get off for a game???


    Give me your thoughts, these players probably didn't want this extra game in the season, the owners surely did!!

    I guess if they broke a record due it playing week 18, they might like it!

    A lot of records fell this year

    Ask the players bank accounts, and you have your answer.

    Yes. Dak got his touchdown record Against all the back ups. Zeke got over 1000 yards. So he’s happy. Maybe he will get 30 yards on Sunday?

    Hater.
    Dak did only play 15 1/2 game to get it though. Or is that against your agenda?

    I think they said for next season, it is capped at $203 million or about that. So it went up about $20 million if it stays that way.

    Many starters got the day off. Fans and the networks paid full freight for what amounted to a preseason game in many cases.
    Fans and the networks still paid full freight to show up and watch.
    The league got paid full $$$$$$$$.
    Winning!!!!!

    Im guessing those guy making 5 million per year and up might not have wanted an extra game.

    Those making less than a million IM sure didnt mind getting an extra game check.

    They voted to approve the CBA, so why would they not like it then.

    you do know the CBA gets approved by a majority of votes, yes? Meaning the 10% of players getting paid 5 million or more per year(Thats a guess dont look it up and then come back to tell me im wrong) but those making the bucks could have all voted no, and the CBA could have still been approved.

    True, but we will never know. But if you look at how the season unfolded, the NFL thinks it is a huge success, along with keeping the 7th team in the playoffs.

    Doesn't mean it will be this was next season though.

    Didn't they play one less preseason game as a result of this? So is it really an extra game, for the starters maybe although even the last game of the regular season replicates a pre-season lineup.

    I think it was a success. I think the 7th team is a success. We get a Monday night game out of this. Im not sure what there is not to like.

    NO, players were not happy with the added game because it means additional wear and tear on their already worn-out bodies. You have to remember 98% of these players started playing this game when they were little kids and when you start adding up those years that a lot of nasty hits they've taken and by adding just more game to an already long season players are probably now thinking more about injuries than they are about records.
