Would they?
Rather than giving us absoultely nothing, if the lockout is as real as reports say it is will the owners give us some Shane Falco's !!!!!!! ( Replacement players if you don't remember the movie) And if so will you watch?

Great idea. I watched the last scab teams in 87, and they were great. Thats where we got Fourcade. Its just like the USFL and the AFL. They were supposed to be inferior, but when the strike was over, each team found a new star. The Oilers found a previously overlooked LB named Eugene Seale. As a result, the strike lasted only 3 weeks, and the real players got back to work fast.

I'd watch it. Think it could be really interesting to see.

When September come around I would watch any football strike teams or the real players. I will be so desperate I will get a bottle of Hennessy and a lawn chair and watch a pee wee game.

I can watch almost any football regardless of where the players come from.

As long as there's a Fleur de Lis, I'm cheering.

No they won't... They can't...

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.

Don't forget there is UFL | United Football League Team Scores, Game Tickets, Videos & News now too. I bet they are hoping for a long lock out to draw some crowds to their games instead.

Unions are exactly what's wrong with this entire country right now. THERE, I said it!

-Without Unions, there are still entrepreneurs and workers.
-Without Workers... well, there will always be someone willing to work, so that's out.
-Without Entrepreneurs, there are no workers or Unions.

When a player comes out of college, and he's good enough, he enters the NFL draft. NFL basically gives him access to an established league complete with teams and fans and, and, nothing more. (The potential player hopes to join the League, not the League hopes to join the player.)

A team likes the way he plays and offers the player a chance to utilize his talent for money. Lots of it. (The player joins the team, for a fee, the team does not join the player.)

In steps the Union to take money from the player and convinces the player that they know more about what he needs and wants and should bargain on his behalf. For a fee... Now the player has his own wits and talents, an Agent, and a Union.

Oh, and the Union fights tooth-and-nail with the very League that extended an offer to play to the player! Again, on his behalf... HUH?

He could have taken his P.E. Degree and become a P.E. Teacher, but no... He now makes millions and signs autographs in exchange for colliding with other players and trying to get a stupid egg-shaped orb across a line. Or maybe he tries to prevent the orb from getting to the line.

I hate UNIONS!!!!

Now if the UNION just went out and bought a football team, we wouldn't be having this problem!!!
