    Union leader Smith expects lockout in 2011
    : Union leader Smith expects lockout in 2011

    NFL players expect a lockout in 2011 because they would have to take a "paycut" of about 340k per player a year??? HELLO, have all you overpaid a-holes seen the economy??? I would kill just for a 340k per year job!!!! What a joke......I hope they do go on strike and the owners bring in "scab" players again!!! At least they would play for the love of the game.

    I hope they do go on strike and I hope they DO bring in replacement players who then take the positions full-time. I enjoy the NFL but they shouldn't think for a minute that they will have any sympathy from the public.

    Yes, NFL players make a lot of money... but I hope they suck up as much from the owners as possible. The NFL players sign the worst one-sided contracts in all of sports. It basically reads that if the owner decides to end the contract boom, its over. That player receives no more money, period. So I say power to them, stick it to the owners.

    One one hand I agree with this. On the other, don't kill the goose that lays golden eggs.

    The NFL doesn't want to end up like NHL.

    Re: Cry me a freakin river!!!

    For now, some players say they're bracing for issues. Mawae said he even has recommended players save 25 percent of their salary next season "in the event of a lockout," though he noted "we can't make all 1,900 players save their money."



    "We've told them, 'Don't go out and buy a new boat. Don't go out and buy a new car. Pay off whatever debts you have,' "



    I don't think the players are going to get much sympathy with statements like that. Not that anyone feels sorry for the owners either. I would think it would matter at the high end to the guys who have the huge contracts. I'm sure they just divided it evenly, so as everyone wouldn't get 340k less, but rather average it out across everyone from a guy who makes 10M to 500k.

    No kidding!

    I think your idea of a prorated sort of cut seems well balanced to me.

    I don't think there will be any short of work stopage following the 2010 season. Both parties lose even in the upcoming uncapped 2010 season.

    You know what would be nuts? The NBA is almost guaranteed to have a lockout in 2011 too. Could you imagine two major sports on the shelf for a year?
