If there is no football, then I will be forced to over indulge in my video game habits.

Good news!!! Doty's ruling today was in favor of the players. So that means the 4 billion dollars the owners thought they would still receive from TV endorsements will not be able to be used for expenses by the owner. Owners planned on this money to help them not lose anything during the lockout. Tide has turned.

That's pretty stupid. Why is it the owners fault that players don't know how to save.

In the event of a lockout, all publicly owned NFL teams should be disbanded.

You can always watch English football.

I recommend the English Premiership and Manchester United.

Really? You from Miami? Seriously doubt it , because there's nothing to be proud about being a cane fan right now. Unless your a student or something.

And if a lockout happens big deal? Life moves on there will be other things to do.

Didn't know you had to be born from a town in order to be a fan of their team. Damn, looks like tons of fans need to know this rule. And being a fan means rooting for a team even if they are going through a rough patch like I said they were.

I know a lockout is not life threatening. Just trying to get everyones opinion and I got yours. So, have a good day and thanks for stopping bye.

Like football, but I could really give a shit if they get locked out. Its hard to get empathetic when millionaires and billionaires are fighting over more money than the GDP of many countries.
If they dont, I will still watch. If they dont, oh well. I will spend more time trying to find out what to add to my car next.
