The NFL is nuts...

1. The preseason is already 2 games too long.

2. There currently is a dilution of talent around the NFL especially at the QB position. More teams and more games will only dilute the talent even more due to lack of talent and injuries.

3. While NFL may be No. 1 for now with fans, adding more games will force the issue as fans of other sports may opt out if their NFL team is not competitive thus a dilution of the NFL fan base.

Why would the NFL tinker with a great thing when they should be refining what they already have?

NFL, Please do not copy the Canadian Football League on two preseason and eighteen regular season games.
