I should be a network exec!!

Reading the recent post about Tamba Hali's Pro Bowl snub got me thinking about how to more fairly distribute the nationally televised primetime game.  Yes, I do live in the real world and understand that as long as the Dallas Cowboys of the world build billion dollar stadiums and claim to be the team that represents the nation, there will be no fair distribution of games but I wanted to throw this out there get some input. 

There are 17 weeks and 2 prime time games a week per season, not including Thursday night and Thanksgiving games.  That is 34 games a season, or 68 opportunities for a prime time appearance.  If my math is correct that is 2 games per team with 4 spots or 2 games remaining.  I would propose that each team is allowed two appearances per season, one home game and one away game.  The additional 4 slots could be flex games the last week of the season for games that have a direct playoff impact.  Since the networks like to have contenders playing in the primetime games, teams who did poorly the previous season could dominate the early season games while teams that did well could be featured later in the season. 

With the uncertainties facing the league with no CBA in place I am afraid the NFL will devolve into what Major League Baseball is today, a league where the teams with the most exposure and therefore the largest bankrolls and payrolls dominate.  This would at least ensure a more equitable dispersal of primetime TV dollars to all of the league if profit sharing goes by the wayside.

Anybody know if NBC or ESPN is hiring?!!
