I think JR is pissed because Manning talked Luck out of entering draft. And which I'd be pissed to.

WOW! This is still being debated? Seems like some of you are more sensitive then even a QB! WHO CARES if a QB is talked DOWN TO! I'm sure he will spend some money on something to make is feelings better. GET OVER IT!

The NFL needs fans and players.....Owners need to respect that. If not then we have a lock out and the owners will lose money, lose fans and lose players. Doesn't sound so win win now does it

Kinda works both ways considering the Fans and Players need the owners or there would be no NFL and payers wouldn't be getting paid...

Just saying.

Someone's already said it. The Players, agents, media, etc have got alot to lose from this.

The Owners in comparison will at best take a dent in their wallets.

While I agree that both sides are being rather brazen in their argumentative approaches. The Players are the one's that are actively holding their tongues. And rightfully so.

Owners currently have the upper hand here, and it suuuuuuuuuucks.

Fug the owners, but damn the players! It's a shame that the owners do hold the better hand, but that's because players aren't smart enough to spend and invest their money wisely. They are too busy trying to live large, not realizing the reality of their situation. If thy would learn to live a little more humbly, have a little more humility, and spend more modestly then they could bring the owners to their knees by sitting out a couple of seasons, thereby making the owners realize that players are the reason that the NFL is the success that it is. But because players are so out of touch and unenlightened, they don't have the intelligence or the mettle to make the sacrifices that it takes in order to truly wield their power. The fact is is that the owners are greedy millionaires and billionaires who have come to the realization that they have the players by the balls because most of the players are living paycheck to paycheck, albeit on a richer scale than the rest of us.

Owners and players are living in a dream world that most of us will never see. The problem is that all of them have lost sight of reality after living in a world where money falls from the heavens like manna. All of these demigods should and could take a pay cut, and come back down to earth like the rest of us. They all have a relatively high quality of life, and could still afford a high quality of life---compared to the rest of us---even if they had to cut their salaries and revenues in half.

and by "amazes" I mean "embarrasses but I've gotten used to it with Panther fanz"

You gave rep to a guy that got the chicken and egg theory backwards.....good job......it amazes me that fans fail to realize and/or acknowledge the fact that there are literally thousands of qualified multimillionaires who would gladly sign up to own an NFL team.

The fact is the owners are the most replacable piece to this puzzle. Ask the Bobcats. Nobody gives a rats arse about Bob Johnson anymore.....

If you lose the players, you lose the fans....if you lose the owners, you replace them with another money and power hungry owner. Owning a professional sports team is about prestige and power for an owner, its like owning a yacht. I live in Palm Beach and the majority of people who live east of North Federal Hwy could buy or actually do own a profession sports team. Owners are a dime a dozen. Players and fans are where the investment must be made.

Don't get me wrong, its great to have an owner like the Rooney, but you can't tell me that the 112,000 packer fans/owners aren't just as efficient as some wealthy fat cat sneering down his nose at the fans with his pie chart (2-14)
