Of course it means more money, that's clearly a big motivation in adding it. But just because it adds more money doesn't in and of itself make it a bad thing.

It should work to increase competition, meaning the advantage of being #1 over #2 increases, so it's less likely to see a team rest it's starters early. Likewise, some years that #7 spot will be heavily contested by teams whose fans might have had nothing to root for except playing spoilers.
You could argue it, sure. I just don't see it like you do. A two seed I think deserves that first round bye for what they did in the regular season. 3-6 should have to play.

But again, what criteria (other than that's the way it is now) makes the 2nd seed deserve it, but not the 3rd seed? I get that the number 1 seed overall deserves a benefit, but why does coming in 2nd deserve it.

Here is the recap on the proposed rules and the ones that were passed:

New rules roundup: Field-goal posts to be extended - NFL.com

Looks like the f*cking Pats get another rule passed. Ugh.

Plus with the talk of possibly extending the goal posts and making them longer, they'll be even more top heavy and more of a possible hazard if they get tipped over. The last thing anyone needs is for the posts to come down in the crowd and injure people.
Yeah, I kind of see your point on that!

I think if they are going to add another "No Fun Rule" to the league on TD celebrations, then they need to reverse an existing one. I would love to see a return of the "Fun Bunch" high five!

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 1m
Despite shopping him and finding interest, Eagles have made decision to cut WR DeSean Jackson. Outright. Jackson is now a free agent.

Just gonna say it, but I see a double standard here in the Eagles organization. Resign and overpay Riley Cooper who did what he did last offseason, but Desean done zero and they blame possible gang activites? Thats kinda garbage

The video does not show half of what occured. From what i read he knocked her out. I doubt very much he is in trouble because his wife had one too many. If that was the case i would be on death row!

Riley Cooper isnt making 11 mill this year.
Edit: if there is a double standard it is economical and not racial.

Dude is a dipshit. Gangs? Really? There is probably more to it than we know as well.
