NFL Lockout

03/11/2011

NFL Players Association decertifies; What’s that mean.  It means they are officially on strike.

The NBA on the cusp of a lockout too.  I hope all the sports lock out.

Do these owners and players realize what the rest of the world is going through?  I have no sympathy for the owners.  I only wish there was someone rich enough to come along and set up a new NFL and let the other one die.  It just seems like the wrong time to be fighting over millions and billions when there are people losing homes and unemployment is at 10%.

I lean to the players, but they aren’t exactly the poster children for sympathy either.  Really players, what are you fighting for?  You’re going to be broke three years out of the league anyway.  What’s it matter if you blew $30 million or $40 million in your short, less-than-a-decade career.

I hope they all lock out and my weekends and nights won’t be held hostage by rich, greedy owners and clueless, indulgent athletes.

All this is going down right before the most exciting sports event of the year, March Madness.  College Sports are screwed too, but at least they are not as overtly greedy as the professionals.

Maybe if less people (self included) are distracted by sports, they’ll pay attention to the fleecing that’s happened at the hands of our government and banks.

Oh yeah… Happy Friday!

    To the person who wrote this article, I agree with you to a certain degree but you do not know what players spend their money on. Frankly that’s none of your business to be commenting on.I disagree with you about wanting a lockout. I feel like the players should continue to fight for better treatment because if it weren’t for them, the owners wouldn’t be able to eat or live the lavish lives they live. The lies that are being told by the owners are viewed as PLAIN OL’ DISRESPECT ! Some advice to the owners, DO NOT BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU!!!!
