    Which means 16 teams eventually.

    That and the 17-game RS means a 21-game season for the SB winners. The NFL champion's season through 1959 was 13 games (12 RS + title game). And those guys weighed 220.

      Perhaps...although it will be awhile (2031 at the earliest I believe).

      Also, the NFL didn't formalize the 12 game Regular Season until the mid-1930s. Prior to then, it was a free-for-all. Heck, some teams even played 20 () regular season games.

        Although if you look at those games they played semi-pro opponents and even high schools!

        Of course, they also played every down.

          Yeah, it was pretty unregulated early on, which was even crazier considering that the champion was awarded to the team with the best winning percentage.

              The ORIGINAL Stanley Cup was a challenge playoff...basically a "we dare you." Just saying.
              Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                And not annual. Just whenever they wanted to. Like the world chess championship.

                    The Creamsicle Dream will have to wait, but the Bucs debuting the old is new again jersey set gives a much nicer design. The Pewter Color Rush looks really nice, imo.

                        It doesn't sound very promising that they'll be back from a couple of the things I've read.

                        Somehow the UFL lasted longer than either with far less publicity. Though it's hard to fault the XFL this time around.

                                I gotta say. Every day without pro sports is making it less likely I will ever go back to pro sports. I just do not miss it. Anything about it.
