    This is certainly more entertaining than all the political talk from the NFL!:pound:

    Yeah, I see now that Gooddell is the problem.
    He represents all of thee NFL. The League. Wrong he represents the owners as he was hired by them. Therein the problem. The league was/has moved to a CBA partnership according to MJDrew. But now it's not.
    The Players Asso. did not vote or approve the Gooddell hire. That's the problem.
    If they had an even handed "League" it could've balanced the arbitration.
    Impeach Gooddell.

    Watching a lousy team like the Panthers practice is like watching Matt Millen in the Draft Strategy Room for the Lions.........:pound:

    Is there a glimmer of hope?

    I sure hope so. I miss football.

    Of course, that means the resurrection of my Eagles thread. So maybe it ain't worth it to some of you.:pound: But...now even national writers are agreeing with me that the Lions may win their division. That schedule looks tough.

    I hope the Lions win their division but are NOT one of the teams the Eagles need to beat on their way to the Super Bowl. :stirthepot:

    Anyhow...

    So who IS to blame.

    I keep changing my mind. I guess that means both sides are to blame.

    I blame the owners, cause they initiated the lockout and charge too much to attend...

    Two years ago the owners notified the Players, that they did NOT want to continue with the current agreement. They could have, but the owners think the current agreement is strongly in the players favor, and they want to change it, NOW.

    The players would prefer to continue under the current agreement so, they would like as few changes as possible.

    The players want status quo, and the owners don't.

    The question is, how do you arrange that??

    Stay tuned!

    The best discussion I've seen is at Net Rat's Lions site. He includes his own proposal for getting to an agreement. It makes good sense. Look it up.:stirthepot: :stirthepot::stirthepot:
