    Report: NFL could lose $1 billion with lockout - NFL - CBSSports.com Football

    Good read, but deffinatly more of the same we have heard. But well compiled and updated to our current deadlocked situation. Do the owners think they can HARDBALL the players union and not take a reputation hit? If there is a season lost to b/s issues over $$ when $$ is more an issue for fans than it is for anyone in the NFL its gonna lose alot of fans and turn diehards more hard hearted toward waht they thought they loved.

    Bad enuff every year now there are 2-3 rule revisions that have to be addresed that ultimatly change the game dynamic to something else.

    And thinkin on the *holy Roller 2* forward fumbled ball from OAK recoverd by OAK that gained ydg when it woundt have inside 2 minutes. Why the hell even bother? You wanna change something make Offensive fumbles unable to advance forward on their own. I mean if a player cant even lean forward for his last bit of ydg wout his helmet, the Ball shouldnt be able to advance itself...

    Posession of a fumble could still go to the recovering team, just seems more realistic to just say fumbled and recoverd at negative ydg *QB sack/strip/fumble* or to the previous plays LOS. No more Holy Rollers ever... sounds like a great win win for everyone.

    Hey dudes. Let's be honest - no one wants a lockout. In order to prevent one from happening next year, everyone needs to have their voice heard. I wanted to let you know on behalf of the NFLPA that there's a petition going on at NFLLockout.com right now.

    This is your chance to have a say in whether or not we see our beloved NFL next year!

    Thanks for the 411.

    I saw this artricle linked there and thought it was interesting. Jones might be curring off his nose to spite his face.

    Cowboys’ Collapse May Cause Jerry Jones To Rethink Lockout Plans
    November 10th, 2010 Yahoo! Sports writer, Jason Cole, reported yesterday that due to the recent downfall of the Dallas Cowboys, it would be in the best interest of team owner Jerry Jones to avoid a lockout.

    Cole writes that if Jones wants “to keep his luxurious new stadium filled with fans and sponsors” next season and beyond, “Jones will need every bit of the offseason and the manufactured excitement that goes with it to market his suddenly moribund franchise.”

    Jones will have his work cut out for him in the coming months if he wants to successfully market a team during a difficult transition period. According to Cole, some of the moves Jones would like to make during the offseason are hiring a high-profile coach, upgrading the roster with trades and free agents, and keeping media attention in order to reassure the public that the team will be better.

    If NFL owners decide to lock out players once the current CBA expires in March, as expected, Jones would certainly have his hands tied.

    “Jerry is always about marketing, and this situation is going to be really hard for him to market,” a league source told Cole. “You can’t generate any excitement about that team unless they’re signing players or hiring a big-time coach.”

    Around league circles, Jones has been viewed “as a staunch leader of the pro-lockout faction of owners.” But with the sudden collapse of his team and a lockout on the horizon, it now becomes vital to Jones that the Cowboys remain in business during the offseason. Then again, he and his fellow owners could still move forward with their lockout plans and simply rely on the billions the NFL will get from the TV networks even if there’s no football.

    and when was the last time the NFL listened to the fans? They are more interested in the people with the Big $$$$$$ who buy all the advertising signs and commercials. We as fans are not invited to participate in any of the Super Bowl festivities corporate America is. So who is the bigger loser corporate America or the fans?

    Intersting find Conc.

    Was just talking to a co-worker about how Garrett looked like he could have the interem title removed by season end.... Guess not.

    The TV money will still flow and keep the NFL BIGS fat.
