Labor Talks in a Nutshell-- What Do You Know?

Help me out here, you bunch of Mickey Loomis'es. I cant think of a better place to get answers to my questions.

So the league and the players are negotiating a collective bargaining agreement, and right now, nobody knows when they'll reach a deal, or what the results will be. But a lot of things are known, just not by me.

-- Are they still doing the scouting combine?
-- How does this affect the Draft?
-- My season tix: Im guessing if they dont play a game, they'll put it in our account, for next season?
-- Will the schedule go out at its regular time?

-- and what are we fans going to do? organize our own union?

I don't know what's going to happen. I do know one thing though...I promised my little girl a Saints game next season, so they better get off their collective bargaining asses and come to an agreement!

NO work outs or practices at least at training facilities. That would be like going to work and not getting paid for it.

Players can do what they want on their own dime and time.
