Don't know how this hurts the players? If they are an asset, which they are, another team will pick them up. Only real loser in your senerio is the Carolina Panther's fans.


They aren't an asset, they are an employee. And if the losers are the fans, then thank the players they are the ones breaking the system. they need to STFU and go back to work as good EMPLOYEES should and make their hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars per year.

all of them?

how stupid are you?

the entire schedule will have to be reworked

I don't want to hurt the players but the salaries are out of control and need to be adjusted. If you flood the market with 80 or so players who are out of work then maybe that adjustment will start.

This is why we have a lock-out because the owners say it is the highest and the players point to your stat. The 57% NBA number is why there will be a lock-out next year.


I hope there is an NBA lockout. It wouldn't hurt my feelings at all if ALL Pro sports shut down. ALL pro athletes are entitled, spoiled ass punks and need a reality check on how well they have it. Shut the whole fuging system down for 2 years then lets see how willing all these spoiled asses are to negotiating

Its not a luxury its a business. Now I grant you the owners are rich off of their other businesses, but there is no way in hell they are going to take it in the ass from the players.

And as for as let someone else buy them, who? You are looking at 32 of the more well off people in the US right now! And let me ask you this, who would want a team with the new way the NFL will be with the players fuging ownership over? NO ONE! Not one Billionaire is going to step in and buy a franchise with the way the labor situation is, not even Trump.

The part in bold just shows how fuging stupid you are. They backed out of the CBA because the way it was going it was going to ruin the league in a few years. NOT because they wanted a few more bucks. Fans can't afford to go to games anymore because the PLAYER SALARIES are out of hand, not ownership greed.

the players get their way its going to shut down as we know it fans better get ready for it.


Answer this brainiac....how many NFL teams are up for sale?

If Richardson MENTIONED selling the team, the line would be around the stadium of potential buyers.

Several of you have sent to us a link to a CNBC video regarding the sale of sports franchises, and it contains an intriguing nugget of news.

One of the financial talking heads (the only one we recognized was Darren Rovell) said that a 30-percent stake in an NFL team will be available in September.

The motivation apparently is estate planning — along with the reality that NFL franchises currently have significant value. So if a piece of the pie can be dumped and a ton of money can be raised in its place, it will become even easier to pay the estate taxes at the appropriate time.

If, of course, the “estate event” occurs before the end of the current year, there will be no estate taxes. That reality surely is prompting plenty of extremely wealthy men and women to sleep with one or more eyes open through the final day of 2010.


NFL franchises currently have significant value. That's all you need to know.

Richardson purchased for $206 million in 1993, the team is valued at $1 billion to date. Poor Mr. Richardson.....poor poor Mr. Richardson!

The players need to be 'hurt'. Every last one of them. Then maybe they will get a reality check and realize how great they have it. Just because most of them blow their money and feel entitled to lifestyles well beyond what most of us imagine doesn't = reality. I don't care how much money the business makes, no one should make more than 2 mill per tops as an NFL player. If you can't have an outstanding lifestyle on that AND set your ass up for life, I don't know what to tell you. Oh and if the careers are so short, maybe you should have gotten a degree (you know the free one you were given) in College that would have helped you to have a career post football. But no, players feel entitled they should work for a few years an retire unlilke all the rest of us

How many employees do you know of that are purchased and traded like assets? You're wrong again.

I don't know Dick, how many? Oh that's right none because they haven't lost in court yet. And that 'value' of 1 billion, is pure bullshit and if you don't know that you are too damn stupid to continue to debate this issue with. That 1 billion is pure smoke and mirrors.

the franchise is worth what someone will pay for it and the line won't be around the block if there is a work stoppage and the players are pulling out all stops to show the owners who the real boss is and ensure that salaries will continue to increase while the economy that supports them continues to struggle.

Sorry but nobody is lining up for this. Nobody that is good for the league anyway.

Not wrong at all but you have your lips so tight on the players asses to understand that. Come up for air and maybe your head will clear

So you hope hundreds if not thousands of non-athlete employees get laid off just to teach the players a lesson? Not to mention the larger economic impact and all the small businesses that will suffer. That's a pretty harsh thing to hope for.

You said that you know the law......look up the legal reasons a company can seek a lockout. The NFL can not lockout the players unless they are suffering financial losses, period. If and when the NFL owners are exposed, the lockout will be exposed for what it is, a negotiation tactic. Once that happens, the NFL owners will be in a world of poo.

And what Captain Clueless fails to realize is there are only a limited amount of people in the US capable of investing the money needed for an NFL team. That money will increase 10 fold if the employees win their suit!

We are going to see payrolls = 300 million plus just to compete if the players get their way. Nearly Triple what the cap is now. I know of at least 5 teams that will go tits up immediately. the what? Now there are 265 less roster spots for players to fill. What then? Do they sue the remaining teams saying they have to increase their roster limits or get sued for anti trust violations?

There isn't one intelligent person on the planet that would take over an NFL team under the coming conditions if they win. Billionaires got to be Billionaires because they are smart, investing in an NFL team under those conditions = pure stupidity.

Waah. It's a players argument. Yes regular people are going to lose their jobs it is what it is.

Hey, don't bitch at me call up D Smith and the NFLPA and tell them to stop fuging with the system. THEY are the ones going to wreck all of this.
