This post above trumps your idea. Other cities like Cleveland, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Boston, and New York won't be any picnic to attend most of their home games either. Playing in January in GB and Chicago even now can border on insanity. Thank God that the Vikings are indoors because winter there is worse than any other NFL city.

Here are my reasons:

1. Sports fans still have baseball through October so there is no "sports gap"
2. The weather is gorgeous in most of the country in September and October so people should be outside rather than sitting on their butts
3. The Super Bowl would be in early April which means you can play it in a lot more cities rather than just warm ones like in Florida, California, New Orleans, etc.

The season would run November through early April. I know this will never happen, but I think it makes a lot of sense.

What do you think?

If you are so busy being out and about in the gorgeous fall weather, how do you know whether or not the parking lot is full?

Maybe you're more annoyed your own nacho-eating buddies can't find a place to park when they come over to watch the game?

What do you think?
1. I don't currently have insomnia.
2. Football is a (mostly) outdoor sport, so this is a plus.
3. And have the NFL Playoffs compete with March Madness!?
