i blame the owners for getting the NFL into this mess, but i blame De Smith for being unable to get out of it.

i've been on the players side but now i'm on everyone's side other than Smith.

i have been on the players side since reading this article: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/news/story?id=6177574

now, i feel like they refused to negotiate with the owners and i lost a little respect for them that way, but they had to decertify or the owners would have ALL the power (which they still have most of it anyway)

I voted neither but i can't see where we can blame the players on this. The owners were the ones to opt out of the current agreement that was supposed to run through 2012. If they opted out because of financial hardship then they should have to give proof of such to the players. Just to say you aren't making a fair share without proof isn't a good reason to tear up an agreement. The players don't feel like they should have to step back and concede things that have already been agreed to. If the deal was bad to begin with then the owners shouldn't have signed off on it. Since they did they should have seen it through to the end.

"Derpty derpty derp I red that them ownurs made a good deal and Demawrice tunred dem down cawz heeza peace of fugging poo."

None of us know fair the concessions were at the very end of negotiations. What the concessions were are in dispute as it is, yet we all want to pick sides and declare Smith a moron. In a likelihood, we're the morons. We have an extremely limited view of what's going on, yet we're brimming with moronic opinions about Smith, the players, and the owners.

GO ahead, pick a side if it makes you feel better. Pick a side because you read some biased comments from one side or the other, or you ate up the public posturing by one side. We're the morons.

does anyone actually have enough information to have an informed opinion?

/doubt it.

//don't let that stop you.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to do a Google search to find all the information about what each side has presented, how each side has reacted, and the proposals that are and are not being addressed. If people want to vote on who's side they are on before doing the research, I'm not going to get bent out of shape and be pissed about it. I have other things more improtant to spend my time worrying about.

Shut up, your logic and reasoning have no place here. Only acceptable comments are

"Fug DeMaurice"

"Players are poo"

"Unions a fugging poo"

Or another variant of those. Chose one and move along.

:rolleyes:

If other people's opinions regarding football topics bother you to the point where you have to tell people to "shut up" on a message board, I would suggest sticking to viewing porn when surfing the internet, not spending your time at a message board. Just a friendly suggestion.

Hahaha, buddy, that was a sarcastic comment. I wasn't serious when I told him to 'shut-up.' Unfortunately tone cannot be expressed in text, so I substituted an emoticon of 'rolls eyes (Sarcastic)'

I'm not getting bent out of shape about people posting in a message board. Nor would I get bent out of shape at a person for pissing in the wind. Just trying to get people to have a little perspective before they post their wonderfully deep and well researched "Fug Demawrice Smith" comments.

So why can't they base that on the information that the league has already provided them? Once again, they don't need it team by team....and that is the point I'm making.

Because without audited and complete financial statements, the data is almost worthless. Unless you have this, the owners could provide any information they want and it could be completely fabricated.

Owners. Can't stand unions.

Plus most of the owners have probably got where they are today from extremely hard work, big risks and dedication.

Most players would be flipping burgers if it weren't for they fact they run fast or are big.

I'm on the owners side. Have been from the get go. Then again, I am anti-union and have always been pro-business. Groups like Organizing for America and the NFLPA can take a hike.
