    Upshaw forsees a Lockout in 2011

    This honestly would suck...
    I truly hope that the owners and players can get together and agree on something long term...

    NFL Players Association Executive Director Gene Upshaw says he believes the owners are setting the stage for a lockout that could threaten the 2011 NFL season...

    I'm not getting worried yet. But this sure would suck in a number of ways, as it could also lower interest in various areas.

    So I'll keep one eye out for updates on this.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Union BS...the NFL is the only sports league that has it right.
    I hated Upshaw as a player and can't stand him as the Union Chief...putz; stick that in your peace pipe and smoke it

    This would never happen, both sides have way too much to lose.

    At least with the NHL lockout, a lot of owners actually saved money by not having a season...
