    Most owners agree it was Dan Rooney that got them past the impasse the last two times, hopefully like Father like Son

    The Rooney's have always been a voice of reason and one of the most, if not the most respected owner in the NFL. When they speak, people listen. This is crunch time now, tomorrow is the deadline. There is still a lot to talk about but atleast they are still talking.

    Why do say that?

    The owners need to get their **** together and vote for another extension. They DO NOT want this to go to litigation. They are not united and don't have any faith in Goodell. The NFLPA on the other hand has grown stronger over the past few years. So much so, that they have complete faith and trust in Smith and how he is handling the CBA negotiations.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest andyg is not a union guy.....

    I think having Art II there is a good thing especially with 'the worst SB host in history' making an appearance as well.

    the players act like they need to organize as if they are being exploited .. these guys need to realize who takes the real risk and where they would be without football .. i hope the owners yank the health benefits so these guys cant pay for their baby mommas and MCL's ...

    The same place the owners would be without players. What risk ? The NFL is as close as you can get to guaranteed profit, there are between 5 and 7 teams that are losing money and that has nothing to do with players.

    Show me one example where a player is the reason that a franchise lost money,location and mismanagement are the sole reason these teams lose money.
