Re: Tagliabue can't find Gene Upshaw's leash...
[quote=TAFKAS;206439]Well I don't want to get into a debate or discussion about the NFL's CBA. But, Upshaw has to be given some credited for the NFL's relative stability over the years. The NBA had a lockout that killed half a season, MLB had a strike that killed half a season and the World Series, the NHL had a lockout that killed an entire season. In all of those cases, the players came back in the same position they were before, if not worse.[/quote
I agree look at the state of the NFL compared to the rest of these leagues:
NHL-Nearly financially defunct and with strike solidified its status as least popular major pro sport in north america.
NBA-Monster guaranteed contracts creating primmadonnas. The game is boring. Rules are enforced and fouls are called depending on who you are.
MLB-Major blow from strike decreasing popularity. Also guaranteed contracts, attitudes, and the such.
REDSKINS FOR LIFE BEEETCH!!!!
