I think the players are absolutely crazy to think they can out wait the owners. The health of the league is what the owners are looking to create and the players want the same kind of freedom the last CBA gave them and that proved to be a bad deal for the owners. I agree with the owners and hope they hold out until they get the deal they want and need. There is plenty of money, the players will still be getting millions, the system just needs to be such that the player can't finagle their way into a super team in a big market city like Miami did and NY is trying to do. The players are just looking out for themselves and as much freedom as possible and it is at the expense of parity and competitive balance in the whole league.

We the fans and public have already adjusted to no season, how are you players, owners, player agents and media doing?

yeah, as I see it the owners have every right to do what they are doing. The players have nothing if the owners don't create a league. The as a business owner why would you invest in a company that you know to be unprofitable?

Hope the players are coming to the realization that 95 % of the fans are NOT on their side-----

Hope you players enjoy your non-paydays now and also hope you can figure out where you are going to get the money to pay your million dollar a week lawyers.

Meanwhile, I will continue to watch the GREAT games on the NFL where teams are really competitive week to week.
