On the Brink

A couple of weeks ago, I spoke with a friend of mine who works for the NFL on what the outcome of the lockout was going to be. It was something that I was hesitant to bring up; for me, all a lockout would have meant was not watching the Jets on Sundays. For him, though, a lockout means no work, no mortgage payment and other serious consequences for his young family. I was surprised at how relaxed he was about it, though.

"The players and the owners can go back in forth with this nonsense all they want," he told me knowingly. "Hell, they can do it all summer, right up until the day before the first preseason game. Every one close knows what priorities they will and will not bend and a deal will fall together quickly. This is just a show they put on for themselves. Don't worry."
