I guess this is really becoming a reality as of right now... I know its a year away, but still this is the focus of the future not of the Pats, but the leauge as a whole... Its been solid for over 20 plus years, and growing every year.. The only sport that could say that.. Baseball regressed, came back, and is up and down to... NBA, is ok again thanks to the celts and the lakers... NHL- Never has recoverd , except the winter classic thing keeps it a heartbeat... I dont know if I could follow football if it sits out a year, but I do think that cooler heads will purvail... This Demarcus Smith wants to go to war, and Jerry Jones does not want to share his Millions anymore...The Smart owners generated revenue, Like Kraft, but the Bill Bidwill, Ralph Wilson, and Mike Browns of the world are getting a free pass.. The nfl is a great sport, here is hoping it continues..
