Now the owner have appy to keep Locked out inplace to 8 Circirt Court
Hoping the stay no
That way we have player trades at Draft on Thursday .
I suspect this is just the first in a long string of decisions and appeals to follow.
Enough money is at stake that the owners will push back as hard as they can, and time is on their side. Expect the owners to use every legal avenue at their disposal to try to keep the upper hand in this dispute. The owners will take this battle as far as the courts will allow.
This won't end until either the courts slam the door on the owners (hasn't happened yet), or the players cave in. Neither has happened yet.
Expect lots of people who rely on economic spinoff from the NFL to lose their shirts while the billionaires and millionaires fight over their giant slices of the pie.
This is Sad Part of this lock out
What about Ticket Takers and Hotdog Markers
Program makers and Other people who need the NFL to make a Living
I don't see Larry Fitzgerald or Anyone looking help out those people
who live pay checque to pay Cheque.
I doubt these people live pay cheque to pay cheque - it's 10 games a year(including the pre-season). Ticket takers and hot dog sellers are young people earning some extra money and also want the excitement of going to a football game.
I know because that's exactly what I did when I was around 15 at IWS.
The NFL is an entertainment business and your entertainment is your players. The players, the stars want a bigger piece of the cake, just like TV or movie "stars" asking for millions more every year when their ratings go up. The players are saying "if you owners are making mega bucks then you can pay us the big bucks".
How about Buffalo Wings? 10% percent of their profit comes from the NFL[url=http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704099704576288933853691762.html?mod=igoogle_wsj_gadgv1&]http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... sj_gadgv1&[/url]
