Union: "Yeah, okay. 18 games but you now need to pay for a 70 man roster. And we're upping the salary cap 100M to do that."

Owners: "That'll cost us more than we can make off it. No way!"

Those games could be incredibly important. In fact for some teams, those games would be way too important to sit your money guys.

No, this would ruin the game. It would make two games each season a joke. Nobody wants to fly to Baltimore to see the Patriots play (I am! Nov 3 game!) only to see players not normally on the 53 man roster playing a throw-away game. I'll be mighty pissed is Brady is healthy and sitting on the sidelines. Same for all the other guys.

Not a fan, but understand why the union boss is pushing it.
