Will there be a full NFL season?


Now that this lockout has proceeded into the courts the chances of no NFL season is really out there. There could also be a short season. In any event at this point we are unlikely to see the quality of NFL football we have been accustomed to. Would you still want an NFL football season if it were only 10 games? The owners seem to me to be geared up to go all the way with this. I do not think the players can hold it all together come August. Many of these guys are not rich and have to much to lose. What about the drafted rookies? How happy are they going to be about not getting that big payday when they sign. The players will suffer if the owners suffer in the long run.

This is all so dumb as to be unbelievable. If I were a judge or God for a day I would kick them all out of court and advise play ball if you want or not. We got some real problems like the national debt and unemployment to deal with. Stop wasting our time.

It will soon be time for the NBA to go through the same ritual will it not. These players make even more money than the NFL players but I am sure they deserve more more more more me me me me.

How about the Laker player who just about decapitated one of his opponents. He will have to miss 5 games to start next season. That will only cost him about one million dollars. Chicken scratch to him. His fellow players are coming to his defense. Anyone here remember Rudy Tomjonovich? One of his opponents hit him in the face with a full roundhouse blow and broke nearly every bone in his face. I do not think he ever played again and he was a decent player. Never did hear what his punishment was.

If as fans we accept ANYTHING less than a full complete season, we should have our heads examined.

We have already been cheated out of our off season. Next will be training camps, then exhibition and then finally the regular season.

What I think will happen is training camps won't open on time and at best may open around the 3rd -4th week of August....if then. Then there will have to be a week or two of free agency movement, two weeks of camp, two exhibition games ( and don't be shocked if these were "free" to the season ticket holders), and then finally a season schedule that would have to be modified.

All because these goofballs couldn't settle their matters without involving the court system.

I never thought these words would ever come out of my mouth, but the NFL is starting to lose me. I don't want my team to win a title with an asterick.......(* strike shorten season). I, for one, will notpay for or accept anything less than an entire complete 16 game schedule and full playoff format.

Stop this nonsense....The MLB had BIG issues...everyone on sports radio talked about not returning....derrr after a few months....they all come back.

NFL will not suffer any loss other than a temp. minor setback.

NFL ran with scrubs years ago...the fans returned...

wake up - the NFL owns the fans - they can shut it down for the season and they won't lose a dime come a year from now.

With the condition of the economy, the players and/or owners would be stupid if they do not settle in time to have a full season. IMO, unlike in past labor disagreements, the NFL will take a huge hit that will take time to recover from if they cant settle their squabbling over millions of dollars when many fans are struggling with the job market, gas prices, feeding their family, and other problems.

The NFL does not have a headlock on all of its fans. I never dreamed I would quit being a rabid baseball fan but I did years ago. The strike year when the 1994 post season and world series was cancelled was big in that decision, and it was not helped with the juicing scandals.

I liken it to on-line gaming such as WOW. I've played them and they can be a pretty addictive time-sink. For whatever reason I lost interest and quit playing. I fill my time now with other interests that I enjoy just as much if not more.

I love the Cards, but a strike will piss me off.

I am thinking 14. We shall see.

No urgency from either side right now. If no deal by August 15th.... then the season will have to be shortened.

Thats only 3 months away.

Sadly, I think we are going to have a shortened season. Initially, I didn't think it would happen, but we're well into May with no end in sight.

Like Red Dawn I was once a crazy baseball fan and they lost me with the strikes. I have not watched a complete game or an entire WS since then.

crap.

my vote is a big fat NO. This thing drags wayyyyyyyy into summer and we're gonna be screwed next season. This FO has enough problems figuring stuff out when they have an entire off-season. give 'em a week or two of condensed off-season and we're gonna be terrible.

I'm with you. It's a huge mistake on the NFL's part to assume the fans will return in full.
I lived for baseball until the strike. Now I will watch apart of a game on occasions. I did watch the playoffs and world series when the Sox won it all. However now I use baseball as a whore to get to football. And if there is no football, trust me, many of us will find something else to spend our money on.

Speak for yourself, I never went back to baseball after the last stoppage.

+1.

There is no way there is going to be a season. The players know it as well. These team workouts are a show for the courts, IMO, and both side know there will be no football next year.
