I will miss tailgating, road trips and harassing cheeseheads.
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?
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.
this is bringing back horrible memories of 2004.
The Bears have been competitive for decades and always sell out. You are a jealous man.
By the way, your dig was noted.
Oh man, lookit. NFL Lockout for Dummies
So I get the decertification of the union now. He explains it at the end.
This will have no affect on the Patriots because we have such a strong mind leading us. Bill said don't sweat it.
this is actually a good thing, the only way this gets done is in the courts
I nearly had a frikking HEART ATTACK when I first read the thread title.........then I realized it was NFL.......not NHL. I'm okay now.
Don't do that.
They'll iron things out. Football is WAY too lucrative for them to let it cut into the season.
Bro wants to be a replacement.
let's go lions...
way to ruin our winstreak, NFL. 4 straight games to end the season
people have egos to fulfill
Yeah, I wont be able to go on a road trip to that god forsaken city and watch Da Bears destroy the Lion.
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.
