    Is it Time to Expand the Playoffs?

    By G.Stryker SteelerNation.com I know a lot of football fans are unsettled with the current CBA looking to expand the playoffs from 6 to 7 teams per conference. I understand the beauty of 4 teams earning a first round bye after 16 grueling games of football, but now players are being asked to play 17 […]

    This article is dumb and shitty journalism. He focuses on one aspect of the expanded playoff as if itís the only point of contention, and besides, the one team bye is not unique to a 7 team field. The NFL could reduce it to a 5 team playoff and do the same thing.

    LOL.....Go get a pad to help with your Bleeding Black & Gold. Trog obviously didn't realize the writer was one of our own. The snowflake mentality is unbelievable in here anymore. If any writer can not take criticism then they shouldn't be writing. Criticism is a writers friend. It will only make them better or, it should. That said I am grateful anyone that writes a story and puts it on here. It takes time and effort. Thanks, guys, and gals for your time and effort.

    I think they should eliminate the helmets radios in all players. Call your own shit at qb. I'd like to see that over just about anything else.

    I'm cool if you don't like it. I write because I thought it was interesting. Then again Freddy Got Fingered is one of my favorite comedies ever, so I get that my opinions aren't always popular.

    It's also a commentary piece, so it doesn't have to be factual. Just extrapolation on the possibility of a 7 team playoff format and my reasons for making that expansion.

    Trog,

    You ignorant fucktard.

    Pay fucking attention, asshat.

    You are six dimensions of stupid on this, and

    You have to know that you can't fix stupid.

    Cope,
    Thanks for all you do....much more than most....to elevate the football conversation here.

    It doesn't even matter that you drink, and write, about all those beers that real beer drinkers would never drink.

    Thanks for all the football stuff, and for entertaining many here whilst drinking whatever dark piss you like.

    And FYI, I do get paid now. $5 a week! That's if I put out 2 articles or an article and a podcast the same week.

    One day I'll pay off the $800 investment in my studio!

    I don't do it for the money, I do it for the love of the Steelers, and the fact that we're trying to build something here. I remember when this site would have been happy to be another site's forum. Now we're building the content and are closing in on Steeler Depot's Digital footprint!

    You are appreciated Cope. Take your kudos it is ok to accept your praise.You put in a lot of quality work around here. In between this offseason bickering posters go check out Cope's podcast with Steelers Kendall Simmons. I don't always pimp peoples work but it was a powerful listen and deserves more listens. http://www.steelernationforums.com/s...ad.php?t=34174

    Cheers Slash. Kendall Simmons was the single best interviewee in creating heartfelt stories for every question I asked. What a lot of insight and great insight into the aught's superbowl teams and plays!
