Panthers' Kasay gears up for possible lockout

(By Darin Gantt, dgantt@heraldonline.com) Carolina Panthers kicker John Kasay has been watching union matters so long he recalled when a Plan B free agency acquisition caused a rift in the Seattle locker room in the early 1990s.p/So it's no accident that the soon-to-be 41-year-old kicker has perhaps the best perspective on the league's looming labor battle, and the potential for a lockout that could threaten the 2011 season.

Amazing how two people can be playing the same profession, yet one can not have the slightest clue as to what's going on, while another knows it from the inside out. John falls in the latter category obviously, but man.. Some of the players can be so ignaaant.

Kasay has a lot more time on his hands to ponder those things then most players do.

IMO the labor deal will get done even before preseason. There is too much on the line for the players and the Owners. Yea the Owners can sit back and make half the money but still its better to be getting all of it. I really doubt the owners will move much cause they moved a great deal last deal so its the players turn this time. The players will be the ones that cave and more then likely they will cave fast. Just like kasay said. You lose your heath plan and your money. Most players cant weather that storm and dont want too. Making some money is better then making none at all.

"To make an analogy, it's like a hurricane. You know it's out there, it's 400 miles away, you can tell there's a change in the weather. There's a change in the wind. It's probably a good idea to board up your windows, probably a good idea to make sure your gas tank is full. It's probably good to go through these preparations. But you don't know when it's going to hit or where it's going to hit and you don't know how it's going to hit.

"It could be devastating, it could completely miss. But you want to prepare, you want to anticipate things being bad. Because the potential does exist for that."

New Orleans fans, please take notes.

Doc, you've got to kidding. The guy knows his poo......I'd bet a good number of players don't have a clue as to what's going on. And that's not because they don't have time to "ponder".

"I've always said this from the day I walked in here, this is his. He's the owner of the team. He has the right to do with it what he wants to. I don't know if that's a fair assessment, stripping it down for the lockout."

You can really read into that.

You have got to be shitting me, ever heard of reading to far into poo? Kasay does have more time to think about this then other players that was all I was saying.

hell he spends most of his time on the sideline watching the Team out on the field thinking "ouch that one must of hurt" he's a freaking kicker, albeit a very very good one but that's all he is and that's all I was saying.

and hell big shock that the guy on the team that has the most time to think about stuff like this is the most well informed? shocker I know who would have ever thought of that???
