For those of you who don’t know, the 2011 NFL season is in major jeopardy. The NFLPA dissolved itself as a union and has assisted a number of players – among them Tom Brady and Peyton Manning – to file an anti trust suit against the NFL and all 32 clubs. What really rankles about this whole situation is that we’re not talking about issues of fairness between the two sides but of issues of how to split a $9 billion pie.
Our only chance of getting both sides talking again is if the courts grant the injunction that the players asked for blocking the lockout. I for one don’t want to see the 2011 season get cancelled or – worse – played with replacement players. I feel that as a fan who has invested time, money and a hell of a lot of emotional pain in (it can hurt being a Jets fan!) the NFL over the years, they owe it to us to come to an agreement quickly.
