    Lockout would tie up team websites

    The league’s prohibition against coaches and executives talking to players during a lockout extends to other employees of the teams’ football operations.

    Specifically, it extends to the folks who maintain the various team websites.

    Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com reports that the league will conduct a conference call on Monday aimed at advising the franchises regarding the dos and don’ts in a work stoppage.

    One team, per Marvez, expects to pull all player photos. Another team expects to lose the ability to talk to players.

    Incoming rookies likely remain fair game, until the draft. Once the players are picked, they enter the union and consequently the pool of persons to whom the NFL teams won’t be permitted to speak.

    The end result? Traffic to team websites will plummet. As will any revenue streams generated by those websites.

    Though the money pales in comparison to the stakes of the labor dispute, it’s one of the ways that the league — and in turn the players — will lose revenue if/when a lockout is launched.

    *Oh...Noo. Its the COPS.*

    I thought about that line earlier today and it feels right for this. 40 billion double dollars to you if you know this movie, which I HOPE you do.

    To shorten the confusion the title will be what it is like online site to site by the sound of it.

    Off seasons are long enough anyway. This is going to be interminable. The longer this goes on the more inferior the football will be.

    I only hope a work stoppage hurts both the owners and players like the baseball stoppage did. I love to watch the game and college is a very good option for the Jones. I have no love for millionaires and billionaires whining about money when many folks are wondering what they will do if the rescission doesn't end soon. I say FAWK EM.
