Re: Replacement Players

I know I am gonna get jumped on this one, I will not watch and I will not extend my DTV subscription. I guess i gotta ask this, when I don't get a very good raise should I go to the CEO and shareholders and ask them to open their books and show me why? Look if you wanna makes billions instead of millions then go buy a team. If you can't seem to make ends meet, THEN SELL SIX OF YOUR CARS AND BACK OFF YOUR INSURANCE PLAN. Oh bye the way, if you are really short on cash pull that $200,000 diamond out of your nose and sell it. Freaking Unions. This why I haven't turned on a baseball game in 1`5 years.

Well, I think you're probably making a lot of generalizations. But regardless, not sure that's quite what this discussion is about. Would you watch replacement players?

yikes! the unions demanded this, and the owners rolled over and gave in. they are both are at fault. they cant even agree to collusion, because they know one of them will cave. both sides deserve equal blame here. and yes, i will watch replacements. because it will count. and i love the redskins, no matter who puts on that uniform

Everyone take a deep breath here. Things are still VERY far away from anything like "Replacement Games".

But since there is nothing real to talk about with regard to the NFL at the moment while Judge Nelson is writing her ruling - - I have to think she has made up her mind by now and is simply crafting her decision into legal language - - why not pose the question here:
Would you watch NFL games if they used replacement players?
Before answering, remember what TV viewing options for sports on Sundays exist in the Fall:

1. MLB playoffs and World Series

2. Pac-12 MIGHT put a game of the week on Sunday this year

3. NASCAR

4. Golf

5. Bowling

6. Poker

7. Tennis

8. Rodeo

9. Fishing


Personally, I would probably watch Replacement Games unenthusiastically because the alternatives are even less appealing.
i would not watch replacement games this time around. back in 87 i watched cause 2 or 3 games had already been played by the regulars and the redskins had a team that was a super bowl contender. everyone knew that the scab games were not going to last. i watched mainly cause back then i loved this team. we had a great coach, defensive coordinator, owner, front office. not only did i like the players but the people who coached and ran it. now it's just different and i'm just not as attached to the current team... different time, different era. i'd go play golf or do some house work.
