    They just strike now, why put us through 2 more yrs of this...Strike, or have a lockout now, and get it done now... I dont know how any other Pats fans could be exicted over no deal being done... By the way Im done with Pro football talk as well..

    BE.

    PATIENT.

    Lets worry about this garbage once we know whats upat 12:01. Folks, your gonna hear about 3934903490 different things these next few hours, it's all part of negotiating. I'm just saying I'm some blind optimist who dosent realize we don't have a problem we do, but whatever happens happens. If the people wanna be stupid and kill the golden goose, so be it. Lets just wait it out.

    There won't/can't be a lockout until after the 2007 season ends and the CBA expires. There's 2 more years under the current CBA. It's really not that big a deal, IMO and they really have until next march to get an extension before the **** really hits the fan. The cap goes up about 10 million this year and teams that have to make cuts right now did so assuming an extension would be done and there'd be a higher cap figure. You know what folks who assume are.

    It's deal now or deal never.

    Oh, of course these next 2 years aren't a big deal. There's only 10,000 poison pills planted around every corner which make it a living hell until it gets worse in 2008. We're talking about 2 wasted years followed by a flurry of lawsuits admist a decertification.

    Messy situation.

    My patience ran out, following this sham of negotiations.

    There's two years of the NFL before a strike or a lockout will happen. It'll work out.

    It is pretty much sham negotiations..if all parties involved can not see what is going on...then?? Well..I think if they can not get it done..see what happens to ratings..fans etc..the ONE big thing will be the ratings and money..if this messup turns fans away from the game, they are lost. Given the poor showing of the refs in the Bowl and this calamity, if the ratings turn downward, they are basically in trouble. Looking at how the NFL is growing and how I am sure these greedy idiots saw it, it may knock some sense into them. Unfortunately, I think all sides are so focused on this one event, they are missing the large picture..How many will say you know I am done!!! It may not be the fanatics like us, but the average Joe six pack fan that just says enough is enough. Sees what is going on is bad..and..GONE!! That will be where it willr eally hurt.
