What do you think will happen?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I would have to say that I really think they'll come to an agreement. I just think both sides are too greedy to let any money go to waste....

Agree it's all about the money on both sides. We all saw SP's new house you don't get that from working at Home Depot.

I didn't think there was going to be one but after I read some of the proposals, I'm sort of swaying towards a yes. It's still a long offseason.

Owners will lockout if that's what it takes; union needs to be broken; rookie wage scale must be put into effect; most people who own a business know that if employees are taking in more than 45% of the take and have no risk, that's a bad deal...

Tagliabue was an awful lawyer; probably a socialist...

Fourcade was coaching The Rio Grande Valley Magic of the Southern Indoor Football League but they just hired a new coach. He was also a NFL football analyst for WDSU (NBC) New Orleans.

My money is on a lockout. My gut feeling as summer approaches a deal will be struck. That will mean no free agents signing until then, could be a very interesting rush of action going into training camp. I just don't see for the life of me the season being jeopardized in anyway. Too much money at stake for both sides.

I think they'll come to an agreement. Like others have posted here...too much money at stake. We used to talk millions of dollars, now we're talking BILLIONS of dollars someone's going to cry uncle.

According to Cardinals kicker Jay Feely, Panthers owner Jerry Richardson was dismissive and condescending when speaking to Drew Brees and Peyton Manning in a CBA negotiating session last Saturday.

Speaking on Michael Kay's radio show in New York, Feelys says Richardson said "do I need to help you read a revenue chart son?" when talking to Manning, before adding "do I need to help break that down for you because I donít know if you know how to read that?" If the owners are treating even the league's most visible and respected players this poorly, there's no telling how bad things might get this offseason.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.
