He took the wrong beating. Everyone should have been talking about how terribly he played in the first half.

Don't think that wasn't the case with the NHL though. They missed out on tons of money. Lets not forget, they play 82 games in a season. There's just much more outside interest in the NFL because of it's high volume of viewers that makes it exceptional.
They aren't even close in comparison. In the NHL the owners HAD to win, that's why they were willing to wait it out so long. The league was dying.

The NFL is in zero financial trouble. The players know this. It's their greatest bargaining chip, and likely why we will have a season. Hopefully an agreement gets done soon. The rent doesn't pay it's self.

I'm not very well versed on the topic so I wont go off about it... but I was just drawing the correlation between the fact that everyone is standing firm at this point. Wouldn't shock me if we don't have a full season, that's all.

Correlation =/= causation. I wasn't suggesting much by drawing the correlation, just pointing it out.

the players know that the owners don't have a leg to stand on, as the league is doing very well. both sides know that they'd look incredibly foolish to miss any time over this, considering the climate in the country right now when it comes to unions and collective bargaining.

then again, rog's wife used to work for fox news

Yeah, the fallout from that game was not at all what I would have expected. Prior to the game, I couldn't envision a scenario in which 100% of the animosity wouldn't be toward Green Bay should the Packers win.

I agree. I said the same thing when I saw this:

I suppose that's what happens when you get caught cheating on your pregnant wife with an intern.

I anticipate this being every bit as relevant as the Ricky Williams comeback.

Hope he doesn't think he'll be starting.
