I'd watch. Maybe the other league will take off.

You know what? If they lockout, we should just have a big ass party around the Dome anyway, with an On-Strike (but not serious) picket theme. Everybody dress just like we were having a game, and do all the gameday type stuff. If a large, game-sized crowd showed up, it would create a sense of awe at our strength and unity. It would also help support businesses, which would suffer from no Saints games, and it would just be a good excuse to party.

It defeats the very purpose of a lock out.

If the Players strike then yes they could go get scabs and try and play... the if it is a lock out that means they are stopping the league until they get a deal worked out that they can live with.


But they are locking the Players out right? Scabs wouldn't be members of the PA would they? if not then why couldnt' they play?

I think Euph's right. Lockout means no NFL.

Also, I don't know why you'd want to go to the Dome and dress up like there's gonna be a game and such, Mike. Might as well paint signs saying "You can drag us through crap, smear it in our face...we'll still support ya!"

Of course I am right. I am always right 99.9 % of the time. LOL.
I know a little bit of this stuff... enough to be dangerous. Plus there was even an interview with lawyers involved not long ago I heard.

There is a big difference from the last strike that you guys may recall happened last time. That was the Union on strike and basically not showing up for work. To show the company you can't produce without us so meet our demands. Company may try and hire workers to keep production going in the mean time until a deal is worked out to show the Union fine we'll hire someone else mentality. That is a tactic used by unions.

Companies, however lock out the workers and stop what ever production they do. Which is what is happening this time. You don't get football and none of the workers can make money until you agree to our terms. Hince nothing could stop a player from showing up to work if he is under contract to play for a team and say oh I am hurt I'll just stand here on the sidelines and collect his check.

So it doesn't serve the NFL any good by Locking out players and then play games... that doesn't make any sense. Who ever is trying to win or get a deal more suited for them needs to do what they can to STOP production. Either the players strike and don't show up or the NFL puts a lock on the doors.
