Default Take on NFL standoff

Personally I think they should fire all players & start over drafting all new players and cap salaries to say 100,000 a year give them a bonus for each round of post season & that is it this goes for all sports if they perform well they will get plenty in endorsements & maybe ticket prices & concessions could come down A lot of NASCAR tracks lowered ticket prices the last 2 years some by almost half
just proves these Venues are ripping people off because they know they can get away with it

I think all fans take a year or two off and see where the salaries go from there. It's all about what the fans are willing to pay for and as long as the stands are filled there is no end in sight.

Holy WHAT?! How much???!!!!!!!

The other $$$$ is TV rights money for these sports. Players only asking for their share of a very very very big pie.

I say cap the salaries at 100K, any balance goes to pay the defecit and fans taxes for 100 years. Problems solved!

Jack Clark used to be my IDOL growing up when he played for the Cardinals. HE was my absolute FAVORITE!!!! He does commentary for the FSN network after cards games now,,, he has put on about 50-60 pounds sense retirement and is probably 275 lb now! NO JOKE!

ACtually the news said it was going to be an EXTREMELY high interest loan,, like 25%!!!!!!!! Those guys seriously need to be sat down and talked to about money management. Many of them have "buddies" from college and even HS that start flocking to them for cash and possessions or even a room in their mansion.
Anyone ever seen Dale Enhardt Jr.'s house??? Now that is a true professional. He lives in a normal $150,000 house with nothing fancy about it out in the woods!
Carl Edwards lives in Columbia, MO (about 35 min away from my house) and lives in town in a normal house!
