A death sentence

Expanding the NFL season to 18 games will dilute the product, increase serious player injuries and threaten football's status as America's most popular sport.

Ticket uptick

An expanded regular season would help teams increase revenue through ticket sales, even if it takes a greater toll on the players on the field.

Feasible with fixes

If the NFL addresses injury and player compensation issues in the new collective bargaining agreement, an 18-game regular season could be a feasible format.

Sure, the Jets could reach the Super Bowl without Darrelle Revis, but why take the risk?

Conflict brewing in Cortland

The escalating stand-off between the New York Jets and cornerback Darrelle Revis has taken on Cold War characteristics.

Revis is the key

The Jets have been overhyped by everyone this season, and the only chance they have of living up to the hype is by getting Darrelle Revis back on the field.

Show him the money

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson needs Darrelle Revis to build a winner. It's time to open up the checkbook.

Put team first

Darrelle Revis is more concerned with being the highest paid player at his position than he is with helping the New York Jets contend for a Super Bowl. Kudos to the Jets for not folding to his selfish demands.

No Super Bowl without him

The Jets need to give the top cover cornerback in the NFL his due, because they absolutely need him to achieve their potential this season.

Procrastination will give way

While owners, rookies and their agents have different financial concerns with the uncertainty of the next collective bargaining agreement ahead, their procrastination and excuses will eventually give way and the current crop of first-round picks will be in camp before long.

Dominio effect

A looming NFL lockout and the uncertainty of the next collective bargaining agreement has player agents looking to cash in now.

Something's fishy

If there's collusion going on between NFL owners, it's the restricted free agents who are getting the raw deal, not unsigned first-round draft picks.

By Doug Farrar | July 23, 2010; 07:52 AM ET | Comments (0)

Need for guaranteed money

Guaranteed contracts, like those that exist in other major professional sports, would benefit NFL players and owners and eliminate rookie contract holdouts.

Uncharted waters ahead

NFL's uncertain financial future has players, agents and owners waiting for someone else to take the plunge before signing a rookie contract. Even if it takes longer than usual, the deals will get done by the start of the season.

Strike while the iron's hot

First-round draft picks and their agents are looking to land big paydays before a rookie wage scale is put in place, but with uncertainty on the horizon, teams are thinking twice about shelling massive rookie contracts.

NFL remains the real king

The NFL continues to dominate the sports landscape, giving its owners the power and arrogance necessary to prevent its players from enjoying the spoils of an NBA-style free agent auction.

City-sized ego

While the LeBron James free agency circus might factor into a new NFL collective bargaining agreement, there simply is not an NFL star with LeBron's $100 million ego.

By Dawn Knight | July 8, 2010; 12:02 PM ET | Comments (2)

The almighty franchise tag

While Cleveland Cavaliers fans would love to keep LeBron James in town with the power of the NFL's franchise tag, it's that singular factor that most greatly differentiates the NBA's wide open free agent market and the far more restrictive NFL.

By Tim McHale | July 8, 2010; 11:50 AM ET | Comments (1)

The power of publicity

Fewer free agency restrictions in the NFL would allow the league to capitalize on the type of publicity storm currently swirling around LeBron James and the NBA's free agent class.

Liberate the players

Just like NBA stars, top NFL free agents should have the ability to choose their destinations and create drama in the offseason.
