NFL, union clearly have their priorities mixed up

According to ESPN.com, the NFL and union officials are discussing the possibility of adding two games to the regular season.

Teams still would play a total of 20 exhibition games under the proposal. The league would go from four in the preseason and 16 in the regular season to two and 18.

“This is an idea that is really gaining momentum, particularly with the owners,” Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy said during a conference call.

“Part of it is really providing more value to our fans,” Murphy said. “The quality of our preseason has really deteriorated over time.”

Hey, that’s great. We’ll all enjoy those two extra games if there’s even a freaking season next year.

I find it a little disturbing that the NFL and union are meeting to discuss whether or not to add extra games to the regular season schedule, but aren’t spending that time working on a new collective bargaining agreement so we have a season in 2011. All fans here about is how there is a threat of a lockout looming and these two clowns are wasting time discussing something that won’t even matter if there’s no season. I’d like to think that Roger Goodell would prioritize league matters a little better than this.

Of course, if the two sides are talking about this, maybe they are close to striking a new deal. Because it would be completely and utterly useless to discuss something like this without knowing whether or not there will be football in 2011, right?…Right?…Right?!
