Roger Goodell: Time coming soon to cancel first NFL game due to lockout

46 posts in this topic

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:

Hopefully they don't reach an agreement for 21 days after whatever this soon to be date is, if not all year.

This is really setting up a need to negotiate in earnest after the June 3rd appeal. In all liklihood the owners will win but the players could appeal that decision as well. So this thing could be dragged out for months. Goddell is simply doing his due diligence and letting all parties know that if this drags into July, that games would be cancelled. If it drags into August, many regular season games will be lost. I have heard dates such as June 15th or July 1st depending on the source. I doubt this will get resolved before July given the appeal ruling even if expedited won't be made until the middle of June. Time is rapidly slipping away.

Why in the world would anyone not want football all year. The fans are the ones that suffer and the league and players would be irreparably damaged. I agree with those who are angry that the players and owners seem fine playing this game of chicken, but to see the game I love hurt for everyone just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

I wouldn't like to see this thing dragged out, but some football is better than no football. At least in my way of thinking.

Opting out at a time that was mutually agreed upon and established at the signing of the deal and pushing a vote to decertify 6 months early are absolutely the same thing.

I mean one says 'lets work out a new deal' and the other says 'we dont want to deal with you we are going to the courts instead' but beyond that they are EXACTLY the same.

Would you like to take another swing? Maybe you'll hit something this time.

like you made a point. you bout lost as the guy in your avatar. if you want to work a deal out, you do it and thats for both sides. neither side wants a deal done. you dont force a deal on the other side either.
