    Possible 2011 lockout?

    TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- The head of the NFL Players Association is bracing players for a possible 2011 lockout.
    Executive director DeMaurice Smith told reporters at Colts camp Monday that he is convinced owners will lock players out when the current labor deal expires after next season.
    Smith made no demands for a new deal and expressed his willingness to discuss everything, including changes in the league's disciplinary policy. The one caveat: He wants to know why owners backed out of the collective bargaining agreement.

    I can't see them doing it after what baseball and hockey have went through I just don't see them messing with it

    Never underestimate the stupidity of greed.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    It's funny because the owners have more power in football than any other sport... and they STILL aren't happy...
