Meh, it's the fans that are ultimately supporting the whole shebang.

Stop watching, stop going to games, stop buying merchandise and then see how long it lasts.

Which would cause a void that most people would just replace with something else they'd complain about later.

Well, then don't complain. (Not saying you, but everyone who complains about professional sports salaries)

I'm not complaining about their salaries. Hell I'm not complaining that they're asking for more. I just don't understand why they need more.

It's interesting that a few mid-tier players have signed to play either arena or UFL until the lockout is completed. I also saw Glanville and Schottenheimer signed on to coach. Yes they are old NFL coaches and past their prime but I could really see a chance of one one big player or coach jumping ship and causing a massive issue for the NFL. The only thing lacking for the UFL is the money that comes from TV contracts. If they got some of the players they would get the TV time.

Any thoughts on the draft. Since they couldn't trade players it did make for a very interesting night.

Redskins picked up a lot of defensive line potential. We needed that. We now have a stable of RBs as well. Of course the offensive line is still lacking IMO.

I can't wait for this super crazy free agency. Plus I love having the cap back because it forces teams who are over to cut and the team who are under the min to spend. Tampa has to spend a min 50mil extra this season.
