It could be a while before we see the Eagles again

The story I've been ignoring is no longer avoidable: after failing to come to an agreement with the owners, the NFLPA has decertified, meaning the players and owners are headed to the courts. I'm not going to even pretend I know all the legal ramifications that disbanding a union can have and what the suit that the players are going to file against the NFL will prove but it likely all adds up to a long time before we see NFL football again.

Let's hope the wealthy people stop squabbling over money in time for the NFL season to start, otherwise it's going to be a very sad fall. Sure, the NHL will still be going, but Sunday's just won't be the same. Hopefully everyone realizes they would lost millions of dollars in revenue by not having a season and things get worked out. Until then, perhaps we should all start doing some research on the CFL?
