Washington Post - NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith paints a bleak picture of the league's labor situation.

Smith says the likelihood of a lockout after the upcoming season is "14" on a scale of 1 to 10.

He notes that the league recently received a $5 billion extension on its network television deals even if no games are played in 2011. He regards that as proof owners are preparing for a lockout

Scab football will be cool. I hope the Broncos can find some solid guys.

I think the owners have said they won't repeat 1987

Players can't cross the picket line if they are locked out, right? In other words, I think it's only during a strike that you can have scabs and replacement players playing together...?

If they are locked out there will be no football, not even scab football.

This reminds me more of the 1982 strike, than 87. 7 games were lost. The networks did the same thing which is why the owners wouldn't budge, and there were no replacement games. The players finally gave in. 87 was more a players strike. Only two games were lost, but those two did have replacement games, which were awful. The networks should have stayed out of this and made it an even playing field. Since the owners get so much of their revenue from the networks, they'll dig their heels in. I don't think they realize how much it will affect them in the end. This isn't 1982...with the economy the way it is, people will be pissed that they are quibbling over that much money.

F it. I don't give a damn if they strike, hold out or what. Both sides make tons of money and the average fan is the one who always has to suffer. Let them aholes strike for 3 years straight, I don't give a damn. I love the Broncos but I don't NEED football, especially if it's going to cost me even more money to go see it and might have to donate some blood just to afford a damn beer at a game.

I will put my money towards USC football. If they had UFL here, I would watch that. I am fine without football as long as nobody get it too. I suffer, you suffer, they suffer and we all suffer without it. I got hockey and baseball for my sports cures.

A "14/10" to me says: you swear that it is IMMINENT that you're going to fail to come to an agreement within the next YEAR ... WTF kind of failures are running this donkey show?
This is an agreement about MONEY between MULTI-MILLIONAIRES ... not peace talks between Israel and Palestine!

I've seen two interviews with DeMaurice Smith, and IMO he is a spineless, media kiss-ass! I have NO RESPECT for someone who offers to "toss the salad" for any members of the media!:wiggle:

Seems to me the owners kind of stuck themselves in this situation because they tried to be good guys the last time the CBA came up. In order to avoid a stoppage they agreed to a guaranteed minimum amount of revenue to the players (60%, I believe).

Once ownership agreed to that, naturally now they're asking for a giveback of some sort. And once labor has something it's awful hard to get it back.

There will have to be some give and take by both sides. The players will probably have to give up something, be it a rookie cap, a signing bonus cap.

The obvious rumour is the players will need to have a 18% pay cut across the board, from 60 to 42%. I honestly think there should be less, and maybe make it to where it is 50-50 with a rookie cap, signing bonus cap as well as new restrictions on tagging players.

If the players are going to face a revenue cut, why don't they just phase it in over a 3-4 year period?

Also, something has to be done about the rookie payscale.

Not just to protect the teams, but to protect the veterans as well.

Like Downunder said, millionaires fighting millionaires over money is just stupid.
