I hope this collective bargaining agreement thing doesn't shadow over the season. It will get old fast. I don't want to hear every week about a bunch of millionaire babies whining. It's simple. Come to an agreement or your "careers" will be threatened.

I think it's weird how fans generally side with the owners who are worth far more than the players who are taking years off their lives playing.

I don't side with any of them. Just come to an agreement. Everyone's happy then.

So now employees are allowed to sue their employers for not providing them with work? What a mess this country is...

The owners are making money next year, lock out or not. They are making it off TV deals they got thanks to the performance of the players. For them to sit back and collect while the players sit out is clearly unfair.

I'm sorta suprised that any one cares either way. I's a fight between millionaires and billonaires. Neither live in the real world, nor will an NFL season not being played really effect me at all.

Yeah, labor disputes pretty much always screw the labor, but in this case the labor is also the product. Little different.

I know the owners are still getting paid but they are greedy and not having an NFL season will effect them long term. I think a deal gets done on time, but it will get ugly in the mean time.

How does decertifying the union help?

The players want chocolate chip cookies, the owners want peanut butter cookies.

I think it's because the players are getting paid a huge sum of money to play a game that most people would play for far less if given the opportunity.

Dude 90% of this board would give our left balls to play at that level
but with the money the owners get I can understand a man with a what 5 year career wanting a share

With Demaurice Smith leading the players union, this will get ugly and the players won't budge at all. Smith has been associated with Obama, The Unions and Chicago politics for quite some time and I assure you the "White NFL Slave Owner's Card" will played at all costs especially since the "owners" still make $$ if there is a strike.

Demaurice will "Alinskyize"(Demonize whether true or not) the Owners at every turn in this process. Just depends on how much of a "spine" the owners have in taking all this bad press. I say they will not put up much of a fight because the NFL product is just waaaaaaaaaaaay to big to "F" with all the $$ to be made.

Alright, I was going to post a Reese's Peanut Butter Cups picture here, but when I googled "peanut butter in my chocolate" THIS came up:

If you were allergic to Chocolate, would you still do your best to lick it all off her before you die?

Unlike blue collar workers who weld for a living making FAR less money than former NFL scrubs playing in various arena or Canadian leagues. I can see certain players making the big bucks. But, the rookie scale needs to be the highest priority in the new CCA. How the hell does drafting high help a struggling franchise when there are so damn many busts making money that proven franchise players make? They need to get the rookie scale dropped WAY down and make them prove they are top tier NFL players before getting paid like one. In turn, they can use this same cash and assist retired NFL players with medical needs.

Uh the players union is fine with a rookie payscale, they've gone so far as to propose one. They just wanted it where that money went into the cap for current players and they wanted money put into a fund for retired players...the owners said no.

They say the world will end Dec. 2012. I concur that if there is a lock out the world will end Sept. 2011.
