    I am against expansion. There are too many teams as it is. However, if this is in the cards, then they have to go to 36 teams. It’ll take 10 years, but that’s where it will go.

    How about just letting Jacksonville go to LA? Or Rams, or the Raiders even? That seems more viable to me if they are dead set on a team there.

    I’d be more interested in a truly minor league supported by the NFL. It would give smaller markets the opportunity to have some NFL quality football and it could succeed with NFL backing.

      I whole-heartedly agree that helping every team develop a “farm” team is a better way to expand the NFL. Giving guys more time to develop would raise the overall talent pool in the NFL. Plus they could double their presence around the country, or even put some of the farm teams in Europe. (That would be a better way to introduce the brand over there.) MLB supports 5 minor league teams for every major league team, so the NFL — a far more popular brand — could certainly support one for every current team.

        There was a developmental league in Europe, the now sadly demised NFL Europe.
