Wilfork Doesn’t Think 18 Games is the Answer to the Leagues Issues

Pats Vince Wilfork is speaking his mind about the continued talk about an 18-game season, and says that he isn’t sure having two extra regular season games is the solution to the leagues issues.

Wilfork read a post on Pro Football Talk that detailed NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s remarks to Tennessee Titans season-ticket holders, in which the topic was the 18-game regular-season. Goodell was quoted as saying: “We do think it is attractive to season-ticket holders. I hear that all of the time from our season-ticket holders. We have not abandoned our position on that. We do think it is the right thing for the game. It improves the quality of what we do, and it improves the value for you as season-ticket holders. . . . We do think it is a benefit for everybody, but we want to do it the right way, and we want to do it responsibly. That includes the players’ perspective.’’

Perhaps because Goodell mentioned the players’ perspective, Wilfork chimed in on Twitter.

“Sure fans and tix holders would like to have 16 since right now we have [none]!!” he tweeted. “… Just stating the obvious right now; no one [knows] the fate of what we’ve always had in place, let alone worrying about expanding … Don’t get me wrong, I understand the not wanting to pay full price for pre-season; not disputing that. Just [don’t] know if 18 [games] is the solution.”
