Lockout 2011: Another Step Closer to Reality

84 posts in this topic

As this unbearable Panther team goes through the motions of playing out its last, few, miserable weeks there is another story on the wire this morning about the impending lockout that will also claim, if not all, then at least part of the 2011 season.

All this means is Panther fans will go through well in excess of 18 months without seeing an NFL caliber team they can call their own.

The NFL Players Association predicts that the city of Charlotte will lose $160 million in lost jobs and revenue if the NFL season is cancelled next year.

In Georgia, the NFLPA sent letters to Gov. Sonny Perdue, Gov.-elect Nathan Deal and Mayor Kasim Reed, warning that Atlanta could see more than $160 million in lost jobs and revenue if the owners opt to cancel the 2011 football season

These are 2 statements from letters the NFLPA sent to state officials in Georgia and North Carolina. How is it both teams will lose the same amount of revenues when the stadium deals are completely different and the ownership structure is different?

Yeah, it does seem odd that they would lose the same amount? LOL

workers at the stadium and predictions on brick and mortar store purchases are probably similar.

That or the NFLPA is trying to use local government to get Owners to submit to their own demands?

Bottom line: a city like Charlotte can't afford to lose hundreds of millions of dollars over this lockout, which is essentially two fat kids fighting over the last slice of pizza... this is something I would support congress getting involved in.

I don't think the owners will cave on the 100 million dollar match for retired players care

So if there is a lockout, will that give us another year to practice and get good before the lockout ends?? JR is an F*ing genius.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
