    Thumbs up NFL: Framework laid for new CBA

    I am so glad they are not going with an 18 game season! Hopefully they get this taken care of soon.


    Get ready for a Colts home game for the Super Bowl!

    Were they able to force the owners to open the books though?

    No 18 game season is kind of a bummer. I wanted it as pre-season sucks.

    I agree that pre-season sucks balls but I would rather them just get rid of 2 pre-season games but that will never happen because they charge full price for tickets and they use it mainly for talent evaluation.

    I dont like the idea of 18 games because I think think would cause more injuries/shorten careers. Not to mention they would have to add roster spots and probably go to two bye weeks per team each year. This would cause ticket prices to rise(even faster than they already do, we don't need to give them an excuse to do it even more) and network deals to go up. The price for 20 second commercials will increase and so will the beer I drink! An upside would be watching Manning throw for 7000yds and 40+ TDs every year for the rest of his career. But then again, he would probably only have 2 yrs leftClick here to enlarge

    As far as the books...I dont know. I do know that the players will be getting 48% of all revenue.

    If you dumped 2 pre-season games though wouldn't it come out somewhat even?

    Well then the players are likely happy.

    Not really because the guys that play during the season (stars/starters) really don't play that much in the pre-season. It is used more for talent evaluation for the guys that will be working at McDonalds/Construction in a couple of weeks if they don't make the team. Except for the 3rd game, that where the (healthy)starters usually play at least half the game. Thats the only one I can bear watching...

    Very true but it is hard to say when an injury will happen. Injuries do happen to starters in pre-season but lowering play time does reduce time for exposure to a situation that can cause an injury so I see your point.

    I'm not a 1M hater, I'm a 1M realist. I'm not mad at the 1M, I'm mad at the M division.

    Anyway, can we get pics and details on the 535xi in the 5 series section?

    I kind of feel for the players now after seeing what a toll the lockout has taken on them. Look at what the stress of the ordeal has done to Al Harris: http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/1729/al-harris
