CBA Will it affect our off season as much as other teams?

CBA Will it affect our off season as much as other teams?

Mickey Loomis and Sean Payton have had to deal with a flexible off season and fluctuating schedules since they partnered up. We managed to survive Katrina......then off to other countries to promote American Football during the regular season.
We've been playing Sunday, Monday and Thursday while traveling coast to coast almost every freakin' game (Gulf Coast to East or West Coast).
We generally have a strong off season conditioning program which I think helps build team cohesion and helps the team build chemistry.

Do you think we are in a better position than other teams with the variables of the CBA hanging over our heads?

No, NOSaints are in same position as other teams.

CBA. Will it affect our off season as much as other teams?
Yes,it will. No rookies can be signed and begin training,working out, with their signed teams.

Which side, players or owners, am I on?
Tomorrow, by Thursday11:59 PM, I would think all sides will come to an agreement.
I am watching NFL Live on ESPN2 (a rerun).
Players will not have insurance or pay if there is a work stoppage.
There is some email they will get , per the union, to continue their insurance another way.
Four points the show posted were : spilt revenue betweeen owners and players, better retirement for players , 16 vs.18 week season,and I forgot the other point.
My opinion...
No need for owners and players to split revenue. 16 week season is long enough.
Players are paid enough based on their talent. Not all players get a D.Brees/ J.Whitten salary. Yes, most players make a few hundred thousand a year and their careers are 3-5 years. That is pretty good pay. They need better retirement plans which seems to me, the NFL keeping maybe more of their salary now in order for some, most of them to have salary later.
