If you’re a fan who believes an 18-game schedule is appropriate – if not, absolutely necessary – today is your lucky day apparently.

Colts president Bill Polian, also a member of the league’s competition committee, said on his weekly radio show tonight that the much-talked-about 18-game schedule is a done deal and that the debate is over.

If this was a Madden game, that would be fantastic news. But in real life, the players wanted assurances that if they went to an 18-game schedule, their pay and health care would increase an exponential amount.

I’m interested to hear the NFL Players Association response to this.

UPDATED (9:08 p.m.):
We have a response from the NFLPA.

Writes George Atallah, the NFLPA Assistant Executive Director of External Affairs, on his Twitter account, " Only fait accompli at this point is that we will have enhanced negotiating sessions with strident commentary. "

Oh yeah, Polian called the 18-game schedule "fait accompli."
