NFL Lockout Not Over; Not Even Close
The NFL lockout has been an ongoing problem since the 12th of March, 2011. To be honest, fans don’t give a sh*t how much money the players/owners are making. They just wanna watch some football on Sundays. I mean, seriously, what would Sundays be like without football? In one word: boring. Instead of watching the big game with my buddies, I have to do chores around the house and find ways to waste time. Sundays wouldn’t be THAT BAD, but football just makes my day so much better, especially on Mondays, because Mondays such, and football is the only thing that gets me through the day when school starts up in the fall. The 8th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals ruled “that the lockout can remain intact until a full appeal is heard on whether it is legal” (Courtesy ESPN.com). This ruling was announced about 2 hours ago, at 8:30 pm (eastern time). The irony of this is, the decision fell on the same day that the NFL owners and players resumed mediation for eight hours. It was the first meeting of the players/owners since the 20th of April. I’m so sick of these greedy, arrogant owners who want to take football away from us. We are the loyal fans that keep their business going, and I think we should have a say in these legal issues. Are we gonna have football next year?
