A lockout is now pretty much a certainty. If this goes to the courts... it could be a long long time.

daaaamn that's nuts. thanks for the links and the clarification for dummies helped.

It actually makes me think about what could happen when the CBA for the nhl expires...if NFLPA is successful, what's to stop the other player unions from disbanding and suing? Interesting months to come.

I like the NFL, but I could do without the NBA. The implications!!

Interesting development, for sure. You think there will be more Sunday night games all of a sudden this year? (NBC owns the Sunday Night NFL games)

This is really bad news for the NFL... really bad. We could see a lockout last more than a season...

I actually think Obama would step in if that happened.

The amount of money lost to both the players and owners after a season-long lockout would absolutely DWARF any potential gains either side would eventually see.

A missed season would be a killer across the board... I bet we see a deal in place before the summer...

That'd be my bet too. I don't think either side is stupid enough to lose the whole year.
