    If the players were getting robbed, why was the union supporting the status quo? Just shut up. You'll be broke in 10-15 years anyway.

    I do have to laugh when some yahoo talks about the owners taking "the risk" when it comes to owning an NFL team. Ask the scores of players crippled by the game what risk is.

    The longer the strike goes on the dumber the players will sound.

    What is over under on how many new arrivals for Antonio Cromartie during the lockout?

    Sean Kemp thinks Cromartie isn't trying hard enough.

    Kenny Anderson just nodded in agreement with his $10,000 in walking-around money.

    We'll know for sure in April 2033 when every pick in the first round of the draft is named "Cromartie"

    They make a lot of money, but they spend a lot of money too.
    But not on condoms.

    I'm guessing both the owners and the players felt they needed to take a stand after the Tagliabue/Upshaw era. They both figured they were getting screwed if two people could work something out without much rancor.
    If they want to get a deal they can both walk away from with dignity, each side would take a fraction less than the last deal and the difference would go to fund post-career medical care/and or community outreach programs.

    The players have looked bad in the past 48 hours, with Peterson saying this and the NFLPA encouraging draftees not to attend the draft at Radio City Music Hall. It's a slapfight that keeps going back and forth.

    He ain't seen nothin' yet.

    When the owners get done, he will be closer to being correct than he even dreams.
