The Courts Ruled in the favor of the NFL and the Lockout will continue

Imagine seeing that headline in the near future.  Indefinite lockout. 

Neither side blinking, no further negotiations.  Both sides waiting it out to see who budges first.  Players feel like they are being shitted on by ownership and the Owners feeling like they have all the leverage in this situation.  The bitterness and animosity builds from the players' side and the arrogance and impatience grows from the owners' side.  Both sides perfectly willing to wait out the storm and live on their millions in the meanwhile (the players aren't broke by any means, although they might not have millions, unless you are Antonio Cromartie). 

And speaking of Cro:

I'm sure Cromartie is running low on cash

Anyways, what was I saying now, it's too hard to ignore that classic, so had to get it in since his name came up.  But anyways, back to a more serious topic.  While Cromartie is procreating again this offseason, the rest of the players are busy fighting a legal battle with the Big Boys.  And talking about the Big Shots, they have some idiots on their side as well.

Meet Jerry Jones:

"I don't think we've got your attention," Jones said to the players, several of whom recounted the incident to SI. "You clearly don't understand what we're saying, and we're not hearing what you're saying. So I guess we're going to have to show you to get your attention."

Jones tapped his fists together for emphasis—the players interpreted it as a sign that a lockout was coming—then stood and walked toward the door. As he reached the end of the table, Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, another labor hawk, began to rise, but Robert Kraft of the Patriots, who was sitting next to him, put a hand on Richardson's forearm and kept him from going.

If Jones's intention was to intimidate the players, he failed. "I think everybody in the room thought it was overly dramatic, almost hilarious," one player said. "It was like a Jerry Maguire moment. You know, 'I'm leaving. Who's coming with me?' I know it didn't scare any of us."

Jones's action, however, did help convince the players that the owners were serious about shutting down the game if the union didn't acquiesce to their core demand: an increase in the "expense credit," the amount the owners take off the top before sharing revenues with the players.

and his buddy Jerry Richardson:

"Jerry Richardson to Manning: ‘Do I need to help you read a revenue chart son?  Do I need to help break that down for you because I don’t know if you know how to read that?’"

 What was I saying again ?  Fuck, these idiots are too distracting.  Basically we are screwed, better figure out something else to do for this fall.  If you need more proof, check out the internet, somebody just gave me a link to the internet earlier this week.  

the internet has tons of info.
