Podcast: What happens if NFL mediation fails?

The NFL and NFLPA are set to begin a week's worth of mediation on the heels of Friday's seven-day extension. This series of non-binding negotiations could very well decide the future of professional sports in America, so I hopped on the horn with Matt Jones (of CBSSports.com's Eye on College Basketball Blog, but, more importantly, a lawyer who specializes in labor negotiations) to talk about the current labor climate.

Matt's the one who inked our lockout primer, so he knows a thing or two about how things will go down. We break legal aspects of a potential lockout into layman's terms, discuss what would happen under the "nuclear" option of a lockout, debate whether or not this mediation is working, hypothesize about the possibility of an NFL world with no salary cap or draft, and criticize the current political landscape for NFL owners.

i disagree.  anyone who has anything to loose or has an ounce of talent isnt going to play for free! as they shouldnt. yeah, the owners can replace the players with guys who are willing to risk injury, for $80 k a year, and im sure there will be something stated in their contract that if they dont play they dont get paid.  good luck finding replacements. and when they get replacements they will blow!  come superbowl time i highly doubt anyone will be watching as the competition will be the caliber of a high school game. my guess is most ppl or at least myself will turn to other professional sports.  unless of course the owners replace the players with girls in bathing suits, then you may get some sort of audience. and just to make a point if you think just because the talent is equal that that will make it interesting, you are mistaken!  thats why you only see parents at little league games!

Over the last two years, most of us working folks have either become unemployed, taken a job that pays less or taken a paycut while prices skyrocket for basic needs like bread and gas.

What makes the owners or players think they're any different? What makes them think that their part of the economy can isolate itself from what has happened to its customers?

It's time for BOTH sides of this nonsense to face the music and face cutbacks like the rest of us.

the media isnt reporting the whole story...

the media isnt telling the whole truth about this potential strike. i'm with the owners all the way! without the owners there is no NFL however every one of these players can  be replaced. the replacement may not be the same calibur of talent but they'll all be the same and us fans will throughly enjoy it. Do the redskins count all 3 of their championships? well one of those was with replacement players and we all enjoyed that super bowl just fine. and finally, boo hoo about the players and their shortened careers (compared to average jobs)... no one is forcing them to play in the NFL. if its sooo bad then maybe the player should find a different career. they know beforehand what comes with being an NFL player.
