I think it’s safe to say this topic of the potential NFL lockout hasn’t gotten as much public attention as it deserves. Long story short, for those of you who haven’t heard, the 2011 season is in jeopardy due to lack of agreement between our players’ representation and the team owners. Without an agreement in place, we can’t even begin the off season training program to prepare for the season, which is basically the first step. So it’s obviously a huge deal for us as players, but also for the communities, game day contributors, local businesses, and fans. Here is the latest campaign by the NFLPA (the players association) to give voice to this quickly approaching issue.
If you, as a fan, are interested in seeing an NFL season played in 2011, please share this video with your fellow enthusiasts and help us to spread knowledge on the reality of the current situation.
“Here we are, Super Bowl, the biggest event in sports, and an NFL Lockout looms very large. As the NFL celebrates its most successful season ever, NFL owners are preparing to lock out players and fans from their game starting in March. Owners have not opened their books or offered justification for this threat. The players want to play and the fans want to see them play. So, why won’t the Owners take a Lockout off the table? Do your part as a fan and help Block the Lockout.” ~ NFL Players Association
