they would HAVE to expand the rosters, because there's no way that a 53 man roster will make it through an 18 game schedule. Teams will need more bodies for practice if they want to keep their veterans and stars healthy/fresh for 18 games.
Such a terrible idea, to expand the season. I would really rather they start a spring D-league instead, if they want to find ways to jack people out of their money even more than they already do.
Originally posted by communist: don't understand it...a lot of soccer players will play have played about 50-60 games at the end of the year and the veterans couldn't play about 18 games??
Soccer players dont get hit every play.. Its a completely different sport.
In football almost every position is getting hit every play, theyre not made out of steel their bodies cant take playing that much games a year
