Time for the courts and Judge Doty to make some rulings now. Show both sides they won't like the courts answer. I heard the courts would screw the owners on revenue % and that could force a deal. But also they could make some ruling the NFLPA hates as well. Not sure what will happen but i am still confident we get a season.

Figure it out quickly **** sticks, the longer this goes on, the less I will give a **** about the NFL this year.

I'm setting August 1st as my 'Eat a fat dick' deadline.

They don't get a deal done, they can eat my fat dick for the 2011 season.

No Directv Sunday Ticket, no Fantasy Football, I'll simply watch what games are on network tv with a passing interest.

Are you being facetious?

The NFL and the Denver Broncos have a line in the sand....I don't pay for my season tickets by June 7th and I no longer have season tickets.

I don't pay Directv for my Sunday Ticket for a few months and they will shut it off.

If they want to keep dickering and start cutting into the season, that's cool....I simply won't be into it like I usually am.

It's ok....I'm not furious and pissed off about it, I have a lot of hobbies and interests.

I'll always like football, but I'm not interested in a crappy and diluted product, which I think will be the result of a shortened season.

A UGA home game is my backup plan and SEC tickets do not get cheaper the closer the game gets. If things in the NFL don't happen on schedule, the plug has to be pulled to make that happen without it costing an arm and a leg.

It's amusing to think for a second that if the NFL doesn't agree on something by so-and-so date, I'm DONE with them! No more NFL for me! Screw those greedy bastards...they just lost me as a fan!

But no. That's never going to happen for probably 95% of the posters here. If we miss out on a couple preseason games, I'll be anxiously awaiting the last 2 along with the regular season. If the season gets shortened to 12 or 8 games, I'll still be there every Sunday, watching with as much dedication as always. If the 2011 season is lost and they don't get it straightened out until 2012, boy will I be mad and disappointed, but I'll be right there following along with training camps in summer 2012.

The NFL is never going to lost me as a fan. In the short-term, I'll be pissed or upset or whatever if this keeps dragging on. But long-term? Hell no. Pro football is the greatest sport in the world to watch and follow, along with the inclusion of fantasy football. This lockout blows. Don't get me wrong. But the very second an agreement is reached, it's back to being the football maniac I have been my whole life! I'm not going to attempt to "punish" the NFL for what they've done by boycotting it. That's ridiculous.

I don't think I'm punishing the NFL....they will get on fine if I don't pay to watch the games this year.

I'll always be a fan....and will be back in the saddle for the 2012 season.

However, I'm not going to pay regular money for a diluted product this year....and that's what a shortened season will be.

All that said, I'm pretty confident they will end up playing a full season.

I truly believe no one has any clue what's going on...possibly including the people actually involved.
