Re: Sports leagues attitudes swinging back to resume/open

Could not disagree more. More teams means spreading TV revenue over a larger base. NFL MAY create or partner with a spring league. NFL is over 4 months reg season and 1 month playoffs. Preseason 1 month - there is a BIG gap. XFL and AAF (to much lessor extent) proved people will watch on TV and att...
