NFL

In the event of a lockout even the notion that someone would compare a bunch of crybaby athletes making millions of dollars a year to play a game, to soldiers and servicemen making a wage just barely above poverty line is ridiculous. If these guys are so retarded that they cant figure out how to make a few million dollars stretch through a year or two of being out of work, then i have no sympathy or respect for them.
Do you all feel sorry for them? I do not. Maybe they can file resume after resume to find a job, which believe me most are qualified to pump gas. I personally know some players and now they are check to mouth as they spent all the gravy partying.
Bring on the replacements!! They want to play.

I don't feel sorry for them at all, if they like to play that much they should play for free, let them walk.

The whole NFL could disappear tomorrow, wouldn't make a lick of difference to me.

Personally I can't wait for the replacements to show up. My Cowboys suck this year. At least the replacements have a chance of going .500

And to think I got turned off of baseball after their last strike. And the poor NFL guys might have to play 18 games a year.

Now if we were to have a lockout and some miracle would happen and we'd get rid of the stupid BCS and move to a playoff system, then college football could really be up there and even move to the Sunday schedule.

At least it gives us something to complain about.

I love sports......ALL SPORTS.......I have coached soccer, basketball, baseball, softball, t-ball....and yes, football.......football is my most favorite, BY FAR!!!

But I am in TOTAL agreement that once they leave college, it is over.....they lose the love of the game for the almighty dollar!!!

Wouldn't you all like to see the players have a little bit better protection against being coerced into playing when hurt? How about those old football players that are losing their brains because they played too many games with a pre existing head injury? Personally, I'd like to see better protection for the player after they retire from the game. Not every player has a multi million dollar contract, but all of them play as hard as they can. Yes, it's hard to feel sorry for a guy that makes a living playing a game, but it's also more about the health of these guys than the pay. It isn't all about the money. And anyway, if they do have a lockout, we'll ave the NHL to fall back on.
PS- I thought I would be over NASCAR if Johnson won a fith straight title... I wish someone else would win. But the way Edwards ran in the last two weeks of the season gave me hope.

Having many players who are coddled through high school because they can play a game (test scores fudged, etc.) and given a pass in college for a championship try, it is not too difficult to understand how someone with MAYBE a 6th grade education could noy understand how to negotiate the finances of hundreds of thousands of dollars. It also leads to the question of ethics---are the coaches/schools/organizations/agents/families & friends(?) taking advantage of not-necessarily-so-bright athletes?
