RE: according to mort

Yeah but this is extremely important to the livelyhood of the game. If they need to extend i say by all means do so. Or do we want a lockout a couple of years from now?

RE: according to mort

i just like the added interest towards the nfl in the time between the end of the season and the draft. there is a lot to talk about in the mean time. i like it but lets get it done this year. they say the players association has all the cards. i don't see it. there are players that will go a whole year without playing. especially if teams are thinking they will need to gear up for the year without a cap. although there are teams that will pay whatever as afr as their total pay roll there are teams that will pay less then they are now since they won't be forced to have a certain amount spent. i just don't find how the players have all the power. some players may but there are a lot that may never get another pay day because of it. i think upshaw is screwing the same people he represents. i wonder how much he gets out of a no deal? i am not sure either way but listening to some of the players it seems to be in HIS best interest to have no deal. let me know if i am wrong. i am trying to understand this better

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

RE: according to mort

A lockout would be disastrous... I agree they should take their time with this. As long as they get this wrapped up before the draft, I'm fine with it. Look how long it took for baseball to recover after the strike years ago... they lost many fans because of it. And as far as hockey, I don't think it will ever be the same. I'm not much of a hockey fan but I was actually getting into before that lockout which in turn killed any interest I had in it ever since.

hey papz they changed some rules and it is a lot more exciting because of it. talking about hockey by the way. give it another try. but your point is 100% valid. the nfl has become the top sport but it will be hurt huge if it can't come to an agreement.

RE: according to mort

I wish I could go to my boss and tell him I want 60% of the revenue. The players don't own the teams they don't pay the bills, what in the hell is up with this shiiiiitt. Maybe we need a year off like hockey and let the players stop smoking the shiiiiit and get their heads on straight.

RE: according to mort

i am with you cherm. i did here just now that they are in the 50's. but it would obviously be the high 50's. either way it is crazy. but i think everything you have been hearing about the players association having this hard spot and not budging is what was agreed to be said in order for the last agreement on an extension to go through. because if it really were true that the owners and management were running scared we wouldn't be in the 50's. remember that upshaw said they have to get in the 60's to have a shot at a deal. that being in the 50's was reported by mort on espn news. that is where i have been getting all this info. might want to tune to it guys. they are staying on tiop of it
