    There's still a remote chance that all of this is academic if they decide on a lockout after tomorrow.

    So what? We can't discuss the future of the NFL if a lockout occurs?

    if a lockout does occur does that void the contracts or does the NFL owe the networks for what games will be missed as long as strike happens

    About the only change I expect to see come out of the next round of contract negations is ESPN fighting for (and probably getting) a piece of the post season.

    The NFL gets paid $4.5 billion even if there is a lockout. That's the problem.

    You can discuss it all you want. If nobody plays, it is academic.

    There's enough people playing fantasy football as it is.

    Wow. A corporation granted an anti-trust exemption by Congress can get $4.5 billion for nothing? I had to look that up to understand the details. Now I'm wondering if there's anyone stupid enough to promise me even a few thousand for doing something, payable whether I do it or not? Only in the media business....:nono:

    DIRECTV alone is putting up $1 billion for TV rights each of the next four seasons.

    At least some of the blame must be placed at the feet of those who present the games on TV for "negotiating" those kinds of contracts.

    Kind of like when the government pays farmers not to grow crops.

    You think there is any chance of a lockout lasting 3 years? This is 2011, and the first contracts are up in 2013. IF there is a lockout, it becomes 'academic' only if there is a lockout this season, next season, and the season after that.
