Since STH get forced to pay for all home games, including preseason, does the NFC get the 2nd home preseason game in the years that the AFC has the extra regular-season game so that each team sells the same number of tickets?

So which team goes 20-0 now?

Every other team is going to forfeit the season due to lack of kneecaps.

 

Honestly, I don't think 0-17 is impossible, unfortunately.

Rich Stadium -> Ralph Wilson Stadium -> New Era Field -> Bills Stadium -> Highmark Stadium.

 

Highmark is a health insurer, which calls into fun questions why health insurers are paying stadium naming rights. Fun!

A couple months ago the Chiefs renamed their field after some health care provider that goes by an acronym. It's technically still Arrowhead, but follows the Superdome's naming rights (XXXXX Field at XXXXX Stadium), but its going to be an awkward introduction before every kickoff on TV.

It’s still going to be called arrowhead stadium 99.9% of the time like Denver is still called mile high, despite being a new stadium

Why can't they move up to Labor Day weekend instead? I think that makes more sense since you're getting rid of that fourth preseason game.

TV ratings are low on Labor Day weekend, that's why the NFL move the star of the season back a week in 2002.

Labor day weekend would be a complete disaster.  At least in the northeast, it's the "official summer" beach weekend for everyone, and that would probably take priority over NFL, and if it didn't, it would kill the economy at the beach towns.  Running any major sports event between Memorial and Labor day just doesn't work well in a lot of places.  Even when the Phillies were selling out 5 years straight, on summer weekends people would either give away their tickets, resell them on stubhub, or drive back from the shore for the game then drive right back (fortunately not too far a drive.)

Also, the Winter Olympics are February 4th to 20th. Not quite sure what NBC is going to do. 

 

Get ready for Olympic Triplecast 2021!

 

 

EDIT: Though if they put all the Olympics on Peacock without all of the human interest stuff, that's pretty good!

Do the Falcons take a QB at #4 and if they do, will Matt Ryan be the type of QB who isn't receptive to a rookie QB (like every other vet QB pretty much)?  Or do they trade the pick to say....Denver.

They used to have the league on Labor Day weekend for years (in the 80's and 90's). It couldn't have been that bad, or the NFL would have stopped it a long time ago.

but the difference is that they're amoral and brilliant not self-righteous and stupid

I see nothing to suggest that they're brilliant. Watson turning out to be a trash person wasn't part of Easterby's "plan." As far as I can tell his "plan" has never amounted to anything but bad standup while preaching and lying on his CV to worm his way into teams' front offices.
