Report: NFL Postseason Could Expand to 14 Teams in New CBA

February 20, 2020 at 02:11AM

The NFL postseason might be expanding as soon as next year.

The NFL postseason might be expanding as soon as next season.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the NFL and the NFLPA's current new collective bargaining agreement proposal would boost the sport's postseason from six teams per conference to seven. In addition, only one team from each conference would receive a first-round bye, according to Schefter, as opposed to two.

The new CBA, per Schefter, could be completed "sometime in the next week" and the postseason format changes would take effect in the 2020 season.

"That's been agreed to for a long time," one source familiar with the CBA talks told ESPN. "There wasn't a lot of disagreement to that issue."

The sides are reportedly still trying to figure out a number of issues, including the length of the regular season schedule. Schefter reports that the parties have not yet agreed on a 17-game campaign and that it wouldn't take effect until 2021 at the earliest.

A 17-game season would possibly be accompanied by fewer preseason games. Clark Hunt, chairman of the Kansas City Chiefs, said in mid-November that reducing the preseason is something “everybody would be in favor of.”

"If you replaced a game, perhaps two, with one regular-season game it would give you an odd number of games with 17," Hunt said. "One thought is you could play at least some of those games at a neutral site and obviously internationally would be one way to do that.”

The 10-year CBA agreement between the league and the union runs through the 2020 season and the two parties have been negotiating to try and avoid a work stoppage.

Report: Steve Cohen Not Giving Up on Buying Mets

February 20, 2020 at 02:07AM

Could Steve Cohen eventually buy the Mets?

Billionaire Steve Cohen reportedly still wants to buy the Mets. 

Despite news in early February that his deal to acquire a majority stake in the franchise fell through, 

the New York Post reported Wednesday that Cohen has not "given up on buying the Mets." In addition to owning the Mets, Cohen also reportedly  wants the franchise's majority stake in cable network SNY if he were to bid close to the Wilpons' $3 billion valuation of the club.

Earlier this month, Cohen addressed reports that his attempt to buy a majority stake in the team collapsed, saying he "gave it my best shot."

At the time, the Mets ownership group released a statement on the attempted deal. "The transaction between Sterling and Steve Cohen was a highly complicated one," the statement read. "Despite the efforts of the parties over the past several months, it became apparent that the transaction as contemplated would have been too difficult to execute."

The Wilpons own 65% of the SNY, the cable network that broadcasts the majority of the team's games. Banking sources told The Post the network is valued between $850 million-$1 billion, with gross earnings near $150 million annually.

"Cohen wants SNY, and he wants it at fair value,” one banker familiar with the deal told the New York paper. “The team loses $50 million a year in a good year, so he wants SNY’s revenue, and he might pay a small premium to never have to deal with Fred and Jeff [Wilpon] ever again.”

Among other prospective buyers who have surfaced in recent weeks is former Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. Rodriguez was reportedly "kicking the tires" on the idea of bidding in an upcoming auction for the Mets.

Last month, it was announced that Fred and Jeff Wilpon were looking to sell a majority of the team, which they have controlled since 2002, through holding company Sterling Partners. Bloomberg reported that Cohen was looking to acquire up to 80% of the team.

Cohen has been a Mets minority owner since 2012. The Wilpons have owned a majority stake since 1986 and bought the remaining 50% in 2002.
