My idea for the 17th game is to have it be a 'pick em' game. Based on draft order, each team gets to pick their opponent for the 17th game. The game replaces the last pre-season game, so it is the first game of the year, and the remaining 16 games are unchanged from the current system. The game is a home game for the picking team, but the owners agree to a revenue share formula, similar to what they might use for a London game.

I could see the discussions around these choices of opponent being very interesting.

I'd also drop to 2 pre-season games, and add a bye into the regular schedule.
