There are veteran franchises that have not been productive in a long time. This is not the fault of the franchise itself, but the leadership and the budget allowed by a loyal fan base. Given the budget and fan base of the Broncos or the Steelers, even the Browns could have been in a Super Bowl by now. However, if that region is not producing, the NFL should have the power to eliminate a franchise that is not producing.
The Giants? Are you serious? The Giants have 4 Super Bowl Trophies, 2 of which are with their current QB. To even put their name in the conversation just shows the person who asked this question doesn't know shit about football. The Giants have been down the past couple of years, Yes, But the history and success are better than most teams'.
Im a nyg fan and have been forever, why eliminate an okd franchise team when if youre concerned anout too many teams in new york get rid of a bad team likr yhe jets, but cus its rigged jets will be good the year after the giants get kicked out
There are many great franchises out there that allow the NFL to be the success that it is today. The NFL is stockpiled with great interest and history of former super bowl winning teams. This is why veteran teams are important to the NFL for historical and future reasons for fans.
The NFL should not consider eliminating veteran franchises such as the Detroit Lions and New York Giants. The reason for this is that it is good for sports, any sport, to have history. And there are some teams which represent the history of the sport; these are two of them.
The NFL should not ever consider eliminating veteran franchises such as the Detroit Lions and New York Giants, because no team can win all the time. Viewership and the Detroit Lions and Giants is not down compared to other franchises. They will rebuild in time and they will be a Cinderella story among football teams.
I think that it would be a mistake for the NFL to eliminate any franchise just because they are a veteran organization. The New York Giants is still one of the most financially successful franchises in the NFL. If a franchise is to eliminate it will depend on their profitability.
