The guest on Episode 337 of the "Sports Illustrated Media Podcast" hosted by Jimmy Traina is Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Florio explains why gambling is a major factor in the NFL going to a 17-game regular season and why he expects the league to eventually go to an 18-game regular season. Does the 17th regular season game mean we're going to finally get a Super Bowl during President's Day Weekend? Florio shares his thoughts on that topic and also talks about other scheduling changes we could see with the NFL. Other topics discussed on this episode include the TV rights deals that the NFL is about to close with its broadcast partners, why the league was able to get such a huge rights fee increase and what's going on with Sunday Ticket. We also talk about how the offseason has become bigger than the regular season when it comes to people's interest in the league, clickbait stories and much more.
