Is The NFL Labor Situation Starting To Resemble "Gridlock" In DC???

Godell, Smith, and Gay Culverhouse Before the Senate In DC Not if Judge Susan Richard Nelson has any say about the matter.  On Wednesday (April 6th), Judge Nelson responded as any “wise” and “intelligent” person would, by giving both sides this advice “Work-Things-Out”.  Tribune writer Lance Pugmire detailed the proceedings in his Wednesday night article...

Owner's Strategy Leaves "The Fans" With The Short End Of The Stick

Roger Goddell & Jeff Pash, The “Gruesome-Twosome” Last Friday’s Tribune article by Sam Farmer, gave us a line-for-line look at both sides in the dispute (see article).

Josh Cribbs was a guest on ESPN’s “Mike &... Read more »

NFL Files Motion To "Keep" The Lockout In Place, "BAD" Mistake.....
