Yeah...probably not gonna happen...but could be something to think about.
So you think that the raw gates from the extra two teams would not only balance out the change in splitting such things as major sponsorship money and television deal from 30 to 32, but also slashing 20 games, or 10 home dates from everyone's schedule?

There's a simple answer here: if the league expands, we're more likely to see 84 games than 62 unless it's a labor season.
