There's always chatter about who's to blame for the lockout (everyone), and who's the biggest loser in this labor struggle (fans), but what doesn't get enough attention: many lower-level employees of NFL teams are getting absolutely hosed in this whole deal.

For instance, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that, beginning at 12:01 local time on Sunday, "non-contract Cardinals employees" will be placed on an involuntary, one-week furlough.

Arizona's already slashed coaches salaries by 35 percent, so this news only compounds the embarrassment of the offseason. For whatever reason, the Cards apparently planned these furloughs a while back, but didn't believe that the lockout would last this long.

That, of course, was a big mistake. And poor planning that's going to result in people, who probably can't afford to miss paychecks, missing paychecks.

The best solution is having this not happen, of course. The second-best solution is planning ahead for it.

And if that fails, at least the Cardinals and the Bidwell family should be prepared to trim the fat in areas that aren't involving the lowest-level employees.
