    If NFL doesn't play this fall, will some college games be moved to Sunday?

    I assume NFL will get its act together, but can you imagine watching the Clones on Sunday?!

    No worries, too much money to cancel the NFL.

    I would be suprised if that were to happen. I think they would just leave most of the games on Saturday with the couple on Thursday and Friday they always have. Hopefully the NFL goes on or there are going to be some very boring Sundays!

    Pac 12 is thinking about it. The problem is nobody knows how long the NFL labor dispute is going to last. It could end at any time...makes it hard to plan ahead scheduling wise to move games to Sunday.

    This.

    My dad equated it to republicans and democrats. The owners and players will **** and moan, point fingers saying the other side is the reason why nothing is getting done. Then they'll strike a deal at 11:59.

    Adam Schefter equates to a first round pick holding out on signing a contract until the night before training camp opens.

    The players and owners will work something out, even if it is last minute. Neither side wants to lose their share in the $9 billion a year the NFL makes.

    Pac 12 & CUSA have had discussions of moving games to Sunday. If money can be made Larry Scott will do it.

    I wouldn't really like Sundays, but have no problem with Thursdays and certain Fridays. I could see some lower level conferences moving some games to Sundays.

    I would almost guarantee that there would be several games moved to each Sunday that the NFL doesn't play on. There is a lot of exposure to be had, and if Pollard were approached to do it for a larger TV audience, he'd do it in a heartbeat.

    1982 and 1987 would beg to differ.

    Along with MLB 1981 and 1994.

    It's happened before, multiple times, and will happen again.

    I've thought about this. Might be an unexpected opportunity to get more games on TV.

    AFAIK all our games will be on tv.

    Also, its getting a bit late to be shifting around dates given how people have already paid for their season tickets based on the announced schedule.

    Those were ALL strikes. Where the players refused to play. This is a lockout. Seems like there are some people that can't tell the difference.



    Lockout | Define Lockout at Dictionary.com

    The temporary closing of a business or the refusal by an employer to allow employees to come to work until they accept the employer's terms.



    Lockout - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    Legal Dictionary

    The withholding of employment by an employer and the whole or partial closing of the business establishment in order to gain concessions from or resist demands of employees.


    The NBA missed part of 1999-2000 season and the entire 2004-2005 NHL was missed because the owners locked the players out from playing.

    NFL games have never been missed because of an owner lockout in the history of the league.
