[QUOTE]The fact that I can see both sides issues means nothing next to the fact that they're taking us for granted like he says. IMO they players should make less.....all of them and not just the ST guys and linemen. I also think the owners should make less by reducucing ticket prices and making it a game for the blue collar guys again. I seen a pair of seats for that Jets playoff game...on the forty, front row for $1,600/seat. Can you imagine paying $3,200 plus to go to one football game? I honestly think they need to cut the crap and start being a little more understanding of what both sides are doing before they end up with bigger problems than trying to figure out the cut of our money!

A double Amen to that, brother Sam! Both sides are greedy, and, regardless of their alleged love for the fans...they could really care less about what the fans want, or think.
The month of March is a slow, dull time for football fans. But, I for one must admit that this labor cat-fight has really turned me off. I'm sick and tired of that arrogant, political hack of a Commissioner...sick and tired of jerks like Adrian (Slave) Peterson, sick and tired of the NFL's answer to A-Rod, Peyton Manning...and sick and tired of helping to make it possible for idiots like Antonio Cromartie, Logan Mankins, Santonio Holmes, Terrell Suggs, and Bart Scott to earn fame, and millions.
Even the upcoming draft is getting tainted by the players, as they are attempting to dissuade the members of the 2011 draft class from participating. Through their lawsuits, they are threatening the continuance of the draft in the future...which is the life blood of the league, and the very essence of the game.
If they care about the fans as they say...I can't imagine how much worse it would be for fans if they hated us??!! Roger Goodell, greedy, short-sighted owners and agents, and, especially, arrogant players, with an obnoxious sense of entitlement, are in the process of ruining the league.
