    If I get the time I'll get some stuff started to remove Goodell. I have some contacts in the media and entertainment world who might be able to offer some advice.

    I'm dead serious about this. I love football. Played and watched all my life. It's sad what he's doing to the sport. We'd have the players support too.

    Players + fans = Goodell fired

    Did you make that up or did JJ really say that?

    They all say that. So even if Jones himself didn't say that quote, 90% of the leagues players have said it.

    The way I read the quote, if in deed it was a real quote, sounded like JJ was mocking the players, like he was saying losing $1 million wasn't a big deal. When he's one of the main ones trying to get more money out of the deal in a new CBA.

    I absolutely hate that we will all come crawling back to the dinner plate like spanked puppies the second this is resolved. The fans deserve better and both the players and owners deserve a good kick in the balls from fans over this.. Is there a realistic recourse to show that fans won't stand for this - probably not. Wish there was.

    Don't fret my pet. CJtheBeast is going to get it all sorted out once he finds the time between posting on the forum and organizing his Alf pogs.

    The fans are the only ones that could get Goodell canned - and the second football resumes nobody will give a rat's fart about committing effort to that. Players don't get a free pass from me though. Either party can make this go away - and both are motivated by greed.

    I care less about the lockout and more about Goodell the dictator changing football.

    This lockout is based purely on owners greed...

    There is 8.8Billion in revenue from the NFL... currently the owners get $1Billion for expenses, then the revenue is split somewhere close to 50/50 between owners and players...

    The owners are saying the are assuming all the risk, and are taking a financial hit... They have yet to provide any evidence of this.

    If there is no season this year, the owners get TV money anyway... $4.5 Billion. (http://www.pfraforum.org/index.php?showtopic=1535)... So, $4.5 Billion if there is no football this season, lower costs, no revenue sharing... Yeah, we are screwed.
