In 1982, after the first two games of the season, NFL players went on strike again in an attempt to achieve a guaranteed percentage of the club`s and the league`s revenues.  This strike lasted 57 days, making it the longest work stoppage in NFL history at that time.  The strike ended with an interim agreement on 16 November, which included funds to cover the shortfall in players` wages during the work stoppage.  Negotiators signed a new collective agreement on December 5. The agreement improved player benefits by introducing a new severance pay, increasing the minimum wage for players every year of service and adding new medical rights for players. The agreement also included a revised 1982 season plan, which had a nine-game regular season and a new playoff format that allowed 16 of the league`s 28 teams to qualify for the playoffs.
