Not me. I actually like Pre-Season, its always good to see what you have and develop players for when you need it.
I like playing GM and evaluating our draft.
Playing 18 games only benefits the owners, players careers will be a lot shorter with a greater physical toll on their bodies.
you're right it benefits a manager, but it also in theory would help the fans as season ticket holders wouldnt be forced to pay out reg. season prices for meaningless games [you being a member of the exception since you enjoy the preseason].
when i was in buffalo and had seasons for the bills, it killed me to have to shell out my money for their home preseason games.
