    I'm confused by all this. I need "NFL Labor Dynamics for Dummies".

    The union disbanded. Without a collective bargaining unit, you'd think the owners would be able to negotiate with players on a case-by-case basis. Right? :dontknow:

    They should use this time to fold weak teams.
    The Jaguars and the Bears would be a nice start.

    I don't understand how that would work. If there was a case by case with no union I can only imagine what a team like Dallas would have for a salary. That Texan isn't afraid to pay money.

    The Bears have been competitive for decades and always sell out. You are a jealous man.



    By the way, your dig was noted.

    This will have no affect on the Patriots because we have such a strong mind leading us. Bill said don't sweat it.

    They'll iron things out. Football is WAY too lucrative for them to let it cut into the season.

    That explains it nicely. I still don't understand the status of the TV money.

    During the season they said the owners would hold out because the TV money was guaranteed, so the cable stations would be the ones getting fucked over. But now im reading that the courts forced that money into an escrow account. Maybe because of the individual anti-trust lawsuits?

    I kinda have a bad feeling that they'll lockout. Especially if the economy breaks down before training camp.
