Chiefs' Hunt: NFL Should "Seriously Consider" 17-Game Season
Chiefs Chair & CEO Clark Hunt "believes the NFL must 'seriously consider' reducing the preseason and expanding the regular season to 17 games, giving the league additional inventory that would allow for more games internationally." Hunt said, "Reducing the preseason is something everybody would be in favor of." He has "long been a proponent of expanding the NFL to new markets." The team faces the Chargers in Mexico City on Monday night, a "do-over of sorts after their game there last year was moved because of field conditions." Hunt added that the "new playing surface at Azteca Stadium has allayed any lingering concerns" (AP, 11/13).
