I like the NFL, but I frankly could care less if they are locked out. Both sides are being ridiculous, all the while the fans are getting screw*d because we have to pay $75 a ticket + $10 parking + $10 beers, etc. to support these guys. But, if the market will bare it - so be it I guess.

Either way, people don't like lockouts/strikes in sports. Neither side can win, and in the long run it will do more harm than good. It took baseball years to recover from their strike - and there are still a lot of people that won't watch or go to a game for that reason alone.

On a side note, I was listening to a sports talk show on the ride home yesterday (LaVar and Dukes) and they were discussing Adrian Peterson's comments about how the NFL is "modern day slavery" for players. Outrageous. And LaVar was defending his comments and saying that equating it to slavery is a fair comparison. Here's a link to the story: Peterson compares NFL labor to slavery.
