So someone explain that last rule to my remedial a.ss again.
If teams play the AFC West or the NFC West they're only allowed to travel the west coast once?
So say the Colts and the AFC South plays the AFC West.
That means they'll only travel to SD or Oakland but not both?
Why in the fuxk not? Seattle traveled to Miami and Toronto. From Seattle to Miami is the longest an NFL team can travel in the nation to play an opponent?
What kind of sh*t is that?
The current way it's set up all four teams have to make a trip to the west coast. In the past it was only two teams.
Example: I looked at the 2008 schedule, the AFC East played the AFC West and NFC West. The Patriots and Jets played four road games @ Oakland, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle. The Bills and Dolphins played those same four teams all @ HOME.
This year the AFC East played the NFC West again with New England (@ Seattle), Jets (@ Seattle), Dolphins (@ San Francisco), Bills (@ San Fransisco) making one trip each.
So I think the NFL wanted to cut down on the massive traveling one team got over the other.
