Tonight marks the beginning of the National Football League's regular season. For the next five months Cheap Manchester City Hats , Americans will follow football more obsessively than they follow any other sport during any other time of the year.
Despite a recent spate of off-the-field issues, it's not the regular season that's the NFL's current problem. Rather, it's the league's preseason schedule, which consists of each team playing four exhibition games that have no bearing on its final record. Such a short slate would seem to be meaningless; what could possibly go wrong?
Plenty, as it turns out. Just ask the Green Bay Packers Cheap Manchester City Hoodies , who lost wide receiver Jordy Nelson for the regular season when he tore his ACL during a preseason game. Or Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who suffered the same injury during a preseason practice.
The simple solution, it would seem, would be to -shorten the preseason. Of course professional football, being the violent collision sport that it is Cheap Manchester City Shirts , will never be 100 percent injury free. But the fewer games that are played, the -fewer times players will be exposed to the risk of such injuries.
The NFL's owners want the preseason to remain the same, and why wouldn't they? It's a pretty sweet financial deal for them, as regular season ticket holders are forced to buy preseason tickets as well - regardless of the fact that the latter are both meaningless and dull.
