NFL commissioner Roger Goodell made clear on Wednesday that a decision for him to start cancelling preseason games because of the lockout is approaching.

"We don't have a date, but obviously that time is coming," Goodell said as owners wrapped up their spring meetings (via PFT).
"Obviously we would prefer to get a negotiated agreement so we don't have to make those decisions."

I wouldn't call a threatening to cancel games that nobody wants to watch or play dealing with someone.

It's a process. Goodell and owners are setting the timeline. If the time for cutting pre-season game one is soon then the time for cutting reg-season game one is soon + 30 days.

These guys need to get to the table and the players need to get a counter on the table ASAP.

Until the players get a proposal on the table I am fully backing the owners.

And I am sure they are very excited about that. "Hello Jerry Jones... this is Jerry Richardson. I have some good news and some bad news. Bad news is that we lost another court ruling today However we just found out that teeray from the Huddle is backing us. Sooo things are looking pretty good." :lol:
