It's looking more and more like the 2011 NFL Season will be at least shortened. Talks between the owners and players association broke down yesterday and the union voted to decertify.
To the players: stop complaining. Anyone who pursues a career in football knows both the short- and long-term health risks associated with it. Nobody forced you into this career. If you don't like it, don't play.
To the owners: you make shitloads of money, and you opted out of the current CBA two years ago. What did you expect would happen? Get a grip.
They have until Sept. 8, which is when the regular season is set to start, so I'm not panicking yet. But this is stupid. There's no reason why they can't come to the table and hammer out an agreement.
Besides, the last thing I want is the Green Bay Packers to be Super Bowl champs for an extra year. (Okay, okay, it's slightly better than having the Pittsburgh Steelers being Super Bowl champs for an extra year, but not much.)
