    I think you have to start taking this seriously, The NFL is the number 1 sport in america.. It is also the smartest, however if they cant decide about how to divide the money equally, then you might as well have Bud Selig and Gary Bentman run the leauge... When the players are led by Gene Upshaw, they are in trouble..

    VERY concerned...I think all should be...why??? An uncapped year could send the league into a chaos that would make it seem more like another sport that fell...(hockey...baseball..LOL) a strike looming in later years?? The problem is playing chicken by both sides Both are greedy and want more and the problem is..they don't realize that if they mess up they get so so so much less...and that is the problem..it's a fragile situation and if the goose stops laying the golden eggs..they all lose AND they lose big time!!

    The scary part is hearing stupid Gene Upshaw saying stupid things like if we don't get this deal done now, the salary cap is dead and will never come back. He's an idiot if he doesn't know that the salary cap has been the best thing for the game since the forward pass.

    I don't think there will be a strike. The last time the NFLPA tried it the players crossed the line and it failed.

    Relax

    The game is bigger than anything the owners or players can try to do to it.

    In yesterdays paper, it was interesting to read Krafts comments made in response to a Seymour question, while he replied RS is one of his favorite players and he wants to keep him right here - he also noted that the Patriots currently have two game plans for moving forward, one with and one without a CBA. That says to me , as usual, we are ready for anything. We can compete with the top money teams as we are one of them. We have the best organization in football, we can compete and win in any scenario.

    As I recall, I believe the NFL went from 87-92 just fine with no CBA.
