An excellent idea and one I favour, season starting in mid-October with Playoffs over by the end of April, early May at the latest. Problem of course is the teams are counting on the full 41 home game stands, pre-season & playoff gates. Fewer games would mean higher ticket prices in order to cover the costs, eating into concessions & parking revenues etc.
I dont know. But without addressing the fundamentals, from location to optimum size, number of games played, open & honest accounting, this dump truck of a leagues' goin nowhere.
