How many of you feel there will be a lockout in 2011? Does it wipe out the entire season, or is resolution likely before that happens?


...Does it wipe out the entire season?....   Well you all should know about a season wiped out...remember last year?  How bout this year? next?   Hey Buc fans, get used to wiped out seasons with the Glazers and Morris.  IMO

I did not initiate the thread to turn it into a hatefest on ownershiop or coaching staffs.  At some point, discussion that remains on topic will rule the forums.  But I, for one, refuse to hold my breath and turn 10 shades of blue waiting for this to occur.

Java and Logan will turn every thread into the same degenerative hatefest of ignorant trolling. Doesn't matter if you post about puppies, they will always do the same thing. Just igmore them.

Personally.. not a chance in hell. I think there is a deal eventually. Theres too much money involved for both sides to have a lockout. I just cant see it happening.

Bingo.

Right now, what we have is a lotta posturing and at the end of the day, the owners will force the players to cave in.

All I can say for certain, is that if there is any stoppage at all, even for one regular season game....I will not spend one penny on NFL merchandise for the entire year of 2011. I won't watch a single game untill 2012. I might even get a website going and try to make it a national movement. We need to send a strong message to these jerks that WE the fans hold the power and we won't put up with thier bullcrap.

.....and the owners will STILL have their billions.

The average NFL career is way too short for these guys to miss out on a year's worth of pay. If there was no season, many players could possible lose out on 1/8 of the money they will make in thier entire NFL career. Guys like Penn for example might whine now about making ONLY 3.5 million this year....but how is making $0 for an entire year and coming back a year older going to help him or anyone else?

The players will cave. They have no choice.

I could not agree more..... and have been preaching this sermon for months. How it can be seen any other way is beyond me.

Plus, even if alot of the players stand tall and refuse to give in, there will be enough players that need to get paid that it will be impossible to form a majority consensus to strike.

Before the latest court ruling I would have put the chances at a lock out around 90%. Since that ruling, I'd put it at 75%. Remember, this is not strictly the owners vs the players but also the filthy rich, big market owners vs small market less filthy rich owners. Remember Jerry Jones words a few months back that earned him a fine from Goodell. He stated how revenue sharing is on the way out. ( http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4469721 )Jones is raking in far more cash than other owners yet he is forced to pay them (the other owners) because he was smart enough to buy a team in a better market. The other problem with this though, is the monopoly part. The big owners want to be independent when it comes to profits but want a monopoly when it comes to labor.

The current CBA is more of a tool in the dispute between owners than it is between the owners and the players Union. True the rookie salary cap is another reason but I also believe it is more of a convenient excuse to help hide the real factors behind the scenes.

Jerry Jones is an idiot. Revenue sharing is needed for all 32 teams to stay healthy and competitive. How much money would Jones' Cowboys be making him if half the other teams were horrible and constantly going belly up and moving to a new city? Jones makes alot of money because the NFL is a very solid league with 32 strong teams. Revenue sharing keeps it that way.
