Hours after the NFLPA went nuclear and decertified, Gary Myers of New York Daily News reports that the NFL is expected to announce a lockout tonight. If that’s the case, it will be up to the courts to decide what happens next.

The prevention of players from playing is the NFL’s ultimate leverage. The players’ ultimate leverage is decertification, which they enacted earlier. The antitrust lawsuit filed by nine players Friday evening aims at preventing a lockout.

It’s possible, perhaps even likely, that the league’s lockout effort will be blocked by the courts. That’s when appeals will be filed.

I agree PatriotNation, but we all know football is America's drug, and we'll come crawling back to it no matter how terribly it treats us.

Report: NFL expected to announce lockout tonight

How in the world can a fan of football feel sorry for either side?  It is time for a LOCK-IN.  Stick the owners and the primma donna players, who wouldn't even be making the money they are if their weren't owners rich enough to have a league in the first place.  Lock these juvenile delinquents in the same room together until they come up with a solution.  No food, no water, until they decide to act like mature human beings.

It really is time for the fans to strike against all major league sports just to send a message.  There should be a designated day or week when the fans boycott any game(s) during that time, to show the millionaires and billionaires of the world there is no league without anyone watching.

I lost my job last week through no fault of my own.  Do you think I really sympathize with either side.  Time to get a life and all fans to strike!
