I have a very bad feeling about the CBA expiring. I am far, far from an expert, but to me it does not look good. If it does go to an uncapped year, I expect that, much the opposite of what is being considered, that owners will become frugal and there will be many free agents who either can't find a team or have to accept a miniscule contract compared to what we have seen. The owners sound like they are looking forward to an uncapped year. These owners have always worked as a group, knowing spending wars or selfish motives would upset what they have, which is the best ownership situation in pro sports. I cannot imagine them looking forward to outbidding each other without limit and giving all of their profits to the players. It is almost suicidal. I do not think a brand new union head is a good thing for labor peace. He needs to establish himself and these guys usually think obstinate is better than soft in that regard. I see a strong possibility that if something isn't done before too long that a lockout in 2011 is realistic and maybe probable. Please post your opinions on this, whether you are aware of other factors I might be missing. I'd also like to know what everyone thinks: If this did happen, which would essential be the players rejecting a cap and the owners rejecting any uncapped system, who would you hold most to blame, players/union, or owners?
