Packers President Mark Murphy, took my [Beast's] season proposal! And promoted it!

by John Breech wrote:

So what's Murphy's idea?

The Packers president would like to see the NFL add just one game to the regular season schedule, but with a twist.

"There's some things that we can do in the season structure that would allow us to play more games at neutral sites, either internationally or non-NFL cities that would help us grow the game," Murphy said, via The Athletic.

To put that in layman's terms, Murphy would prefer a 17-game schedule with that extra game being played as a neutral site game or an international game. Basically, that means every team in the league would either play at a neutral site or an international site every year.

How about this... instead of 18 games... go to 17 games ... 8 home, 8 away and one at a non NFL city...

And maybe have it where the decide who picks which teams get to decide where to play. Such as maybe AFC odd years, NFC even years or something like that.

I would like to THANK Zero2Cool for making this amazing website for all of us, which keeps all of our old posts and makes them easy to search for, I found those three in a simply quick basic search (and I'm sure there are more, as I've been suggesting that idea a number of times, for a while (surprised 9 years ago, times flies).

Also thanks to Mark Murphy for (clearly [wink]) reading this amazing website and taking my proposal to the next level (though don't forget to give credit or perks to where you get your ideas from (both me and the founders/runners of this amazingly great website). [thumbup]

Thanks KRK, I'm still not sure they should change anything, just thought this was a creative way to add one more single game and play in different places.

I know the Packers have been trying to play international games (at least in select markets (pro to UK, Canada and Mexico, but not China (too far for them)) but they aren't about to give up a home game and other teams aren't about to give up a road game with the well travelling Packers fans if they can help it.

I can't remember if this is accurate, but I want to say after this season, the Packers will be the only team that has not played a game in the UK.

Plus when it's the Packers turn to select places maybe they could select a stadium in Milwaukee or Canada? Or where the Wisconsin Badgers play!

Milwaukee wouldn’t work, as Miller Park was built only for baseball. They couldn’t fit a football field in there. (I wish they would have designed it so football could be played there)
But it WOULD work at Camp Randall stadium in Madison.
I don’t think the Packers would do it though, as it would take away from their income at Lambert Field.

I knew someone had been throwing that suggestion out there over and over and over again but I wasn't sure who 😉 They want to add more games because it will bring in more money it's as simple as that. It won't make anything better as far as the game is concerned and the added potential for injury could make it worse. The neutral site would theoretically ad interest and even more money. Making more money isn't necessarily a bad thing but I think if they are going to get the players on board they are going to have to give up a quite a bit as well.




Every team has fans that fans of other teams point to and say "all their fans are assholes" Don't be one of those fans.

Good idea,
To build on it, the players are going to want something.
Everyone, of course will get a 1 game raise, I would like to get rid of the 7 players who are inactive every week.
Make it a 53 man roster.
Also a relaxed IR.
Something similar to baseball.

Da Bares use to play at Wrigley and it was a problem running into the east endzone. A few years ago Illinois and Northwestern played there. They did not use the East endzone except for a pick 6. Both teams lined up and ran their offense toward "home plate".

Even if they can play at Miller Park of Camp Randall, I doubt they would use it. A visiting team would think it's a Packer home game. Cleveland might be able to play in Michigan's Big House but not Detroit. On the other hand, after the new stadium is compete, I don't see a problem if the 2 LA team play in the Colosseum.

The first Packer game I saw live was at Milwaukee County Stadium in 1970. It was a preseason game against the Bears and ended in a 6-6 tie.
They could barely fit a football field in there, and both teams were on the same sideline.
Miller Park purposely was built as a baseball only stadium, and they can’t fit a football field in it no matter which way.
I myself think that was very short sighted. But that’s what they wanted.

Hey, it was over and over with years apart from each other 😉 ...

Yeah I think more games could make it worse product as a whole, both from injuries standpoint, and because by the end of the year a number of teams have nothing to play for other than pride and individual players contracts already. More games just means more teams will have either locked up a spot or be already out of the chase by the season ended.

But this idea sorta split the difference of adding one single game, while not forcing anyone to give up a home game. As you point out, the players would still have to get on board, but I think a number of the players like playing somewhere different on a neutral site, but you're right that's not gonna move the needle at all for the Union.

I think most would prefer that in some shape or form.

I think they're two separate ideas, which could be combined if one wants to.

The non-NFL-city game is more about spreading NFL into new locations that it's normally not played in... depending on how to do it, it doesn't necessary have to be neutral locations (one idea I had was to set it up, for AFC gets it one year and the NFC gets it for another, letting the teams plan and decide where the games are played), but another could be the NFL and trying to get some international games (though those might be nice to have a bye week before or after).

The other extra bye weeks idea, was simply to expand the season in terms of number of weeks it's covered via TV, without necessary expanding the number of games, which the players might be more open to it (if you cut preseason shorter to counter the extra week time for players).

I wasn't aware of Milwaukee's stadium, I just knew they used to play there some, I guess that's over with.
