    They'll get a deal done, you watch. This is too huge a cash cow to let it die. NCAA needs to NFL as well. I love both college and pro ball!

    Everyone says they will walk away from the strike and never watch another game, only to find themselves parked in front of the television clamoring for the kickoff in the first game after the work stoppage....and all is forgiven.

    NFL owners everywhere are cringing at the thought of your failure to watch their games.
    They already know you never purchased a game ticket or merchandise.
    In fact, i heard from a reliable source, that they have you listed on the "malcontent" list.

    Hell trev, don't you remember the MLB strike that nearly ruined the game?
    Killed over half the season.

    This strike was the pre-cursor to the owners going to the players and asking them to juice up.
    They also juiced up the baseball.
    Then the homers were a flying and the fans were back in the seats again.

    The NFL and the NBA will get it done, unless the players are total idiots.
    The players need to realize that most of the owners already have the money.
    If the season is nixed, they don't have to spend what they have, but they won't make any more.
    The players make nothing, and they get another year of age on them.

    97 was the year i started watching mlb... it was the first season ever to be shown on tv here so while i've heard of the strikes a few years previous it didn't affect me. i'll never forget the marlins winning that series... no idea how i started supporting the mets.

    then after the 2008 season they took it away from us, it was still available on satellite tv but without the studio, we used to get the wed and sun night matches live every week on free tv, even if it was a poor game you'd always watch it because of the entertainment in the studio in between innings. now all we get is espn ads

    i hope they strike in the nba, worse sport ever.

    NFL will be back right on cue- the money involved for TV and the NFL is just to much for them not to resolve all the issues

    All I can say is that if the NFL folds and never plays another game, then the last game Tom Brady and the New England Patriots ever played will have been a home playoff loss to the Jets.

    Almost makes me root for the NFL to fold...
