...and the owners aren't getting ridiculous with the money they are asking for? It's all relevant. The players are what make the game, not the owners.

The problem I have with this is that the owner can cut the players at any time so why shouldn't they be able to hold out? If these contracts were guaranteed money, I would agree with you 100%. I will say this, it does irk me when a guy signs a 4-5 year deal and wants to renegotiate after 2 years into the contract.(and not talking about rookie contracts) I can see if it's your last year going into that contract, but if you are holding out after 2 years into your new contract, chances are you need a better agent.

Yeah I do see your point with guaranteed money, either way it's ridiculous that these men argue over millions of dollars lol. Like cmon man

Denarius Moore is a stud (hurt at the moment) and Rod Streater (rookie) is looking pretty solid.

He was an impressive rookie:

Give me Moore: NFL.com’s Steve Wyche believes Oakland Raiders wideout Denarius Moore is “someone to keep an eye on.” Though the Tennessee product had only 33 receptions in his rookie campaign, as Wyche points out, those receptions resulted in “618 yards and five touchdowns. That’s 18.7 yards a catch.” Moore’s success can be directly attributed to the arrival of quarterback Carson Palmer. In the six games played before Palmer took the helm, Moore amassed just 208 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 16 yards per catch. In seven games with the veteran under center, Moore racked up 410 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 20.5 yards per catch. Now that Moore and Palmer will have had a full offseason to work on their chemistry, he is on the list of second-year wideouts fantasy football owners should target. Consider him a No. 3 or 4 wide receiver in fantasy football drafts, with the potential to outperform his status.

No, sorry, the game itself..is what makes the game.Owners come and go ,there are good ones and bad one ....same with players but it's the game itself,that keeps people coming back.If a pro game isn't on or during the lockout I'd watch a college game ,actually I like a good high school game over a college game myself.
