Looks like the players' take is that they wanted audited proof that the NFL was in bad financial shape before conceding much.

....Which, doesn't sound that unreasonable. My impression was that the NFL had been saying "we're in bad shape, just trust us".

Ah, fuck. I had some hope after last week, but it looks like this will drag out a bit longer.

I still think it will be resolved before the season begins though. The courts will force the NFL to open up their finances; the owners are stupid for thinking otherwise.

31 men want to get richer. That's basically it.

I guess there's an extra sense of pride in that the Pack doesn't have one.

They have about 100,000 owners.

Yeah, but they're not exactly raking in tons of cash and clamoring for more.

Well, stockholders are basically fans - as the shares really have no value (other than original face value). You get voting rights, but that's about it.

I'd actually like to see if there are any consequences the next time the Packers' board of directors come up for election.

So what are US sports fans to do with the lockout and the possability of an NBA labour stoppage coming up as well?
