Didnt the nfl used to play saturday games after the college season ended? I really enjoyed that.

I also agree about being able to see more games. There are usually at least 8 or 9 games on durng the early slot, and most fans dont get to see a lot of other teams play because theyre busy watching the home team.

there should be a Saturday night game, all season, some will complain about college but college is on literally every night b/t Tuesday and Saturday. Nobody complains about college football on Friday nights infringing on HS football,

from 11:00am till midnight on a typical Saturday during the college season there are multiple games on. I have the opportunity to watch literally 25 different college games on SAturday, put an NFL game on Sat. afternoon/night, maybe switch with a big-time college game and let the fans watch more NFL games.

I agree the thursday night game is stupid, but a Saturday game is just one day different.

the NFL is by far the most popular league and the access to it is pretty small with so many concurrent games being played.

if you don't want one all season how about the now when for a whole month there's no college football. there really should be a Saturday night game during december when nothing else is going on.


Saturday Night Football is only necessary the last 2 weeks of the regular season and during the playoffs

why not? why not more football? it's the undisputed most popular game in america

I can watch literally 25 different college games on saturday, many of which turn out to be blowouts, so why not one pro game?

just because? that's not an answer. it's 2012

Folks, it's not Goodell for cryin' out loud; sadly, it's business and business means money.

The owners ARE the NFL. More playoff bids means more money for their team, more money for them. More opportunities to get into the playoffs means more opportunity for money -- simple. It's always about money, just different circumstances. (Referee lockout/strike etc.) I would say it's not fair and doesn't support the notion of true sportsmanship and competition but my opinion doesn't count.

Goodell is just the messenger boy for the NFL, nothing more, nothing less.

Because the appeal of the NFL has always been that it was only on 2 days a week. If it;s on all the time then it deceases the appeal of the sport

Goodell has a ways to go before he reaches Bettman's level of ineptitude and stupidity ... but he's getting there.

The only thing that winning the Super Bowl means is that you've won the Super Bowl.

Dear TVandSportsGuy,

Welcome to two years ago. We're glad other people have finally begun to figure it out.

Sincerely,
