Default I miss football

I miss football. I miss the free agent signings, the depth charts, camp, the games. I miss it all. I have been ok, but this time of year is when I get itchy. Usually camp is around the corner, not in jeopardy. Last I heard they were stalemating on the rookie wage scale.

I think they will probably reach an agreement (despite the remaining issues that are in a stalemate) within the next two weeks sometime, so we should be getting football back soon. The beginning of the loss of real revenues is a great motivational tool for getting a deal done and I think we'll see that happen shortly. The may lose the HOF game, but that might be it.

I remember the commissioner saying if he had to they would push the super bowl back two weeks. That wouldn't be so bad if they decided they were going to move the whole season back two weeks.

I miss it also, but I am not worried. They will get it done and miss at most 1 preseason game, maybe shift everything back a week, something but it will get done.

I miss football but I don't know if I really miss hovering over camp updates where have 5 different people have 5 different takes on how each player is doing.

Soccer has been really exciting this year so I don't feel as bad a lull to convince myself (and failing) that baseball is interesting.

its fun to read and i think people can get an idea by reading all of them and summing them together. one person will say every player sucks, an UDFA is on the way to the HOF and is a surefire starter, one poster can see no wrong. it really is interesting how several people can see the same thing and get a different perspective on whats happening.

Every camp report I have ever seen = Umm, I don't know if the defense is really good or the offense is really bad from that play. I don't know if the offense is really good or the defense is really bad from that play.

Oh well, that is a lot better than the people who extrapolate too much from pre season games.

The only thing I take from this is that people on message boards smell their own farts and don't know what they are talking about.

Same. Honestly my favorite parts of the football year are free agency, trades and the draft. It's the eternal optimism that comes along with it. Kinda like how the anticipation for Christmas was more exciting than actually playing with the toys (for me, at least).

I will miss going to Games this Year (I am mad about this garbage, and will vote with my Dollars)-I became disheartened over the Cutler fiasco, excited then disgusted over McD, and now this-it's not a great time to be an NFL Fan (let alone a bronco fan)-hopefully this ignorance will be over soon, and Fox will turn out to be more than we thought-until then, this sucks-

Really, that doesn't matter as much as being there and the experience. I enjoy the games and winning is a bonus. It is a time where I can meet with friends and have a good time. That isd what it is all about to me. I enjoy the experience and I miss football too!
