Even if this happened to be the case, which I doubt it is(among die hards), you`d want to weaken this trend as fast as possible, when your in talks for big national tv deals.

Its obvious that fewer games means far better ratings for television. Each game has more value and importance, and it`s easier for schedule if more eyes are focused on the same games.

The question really is if we went from 82 to to say 60 games, would the increased chance for better television deals combined with better revenue generation through more regular game attendance and greater market scarcity pay off.
