    well, i mean, the current situation involves a CBA & a lockout which means the owners can't hire scabs...


    so a more rules-free situation, where they got upset like this and for whatever reason each went their own ways (w/o penalty), I take it you mean?

    I would watch the NFL league only. The NFL teams have all the tradition. Also the players wouldn't stick to the make shift league because their power to earn money is now and they wouldn't come close to making what they do now. But if they were asked back by the owners because the back yard league had a little bit of success and the players given their way on everything we would go through work stopage all the time by the players. They would feel they have all the leverage. As greedy as the owners are, they have to be successful over the NFLPU or there will be problems ever other year with them wanting more and more.

    Today's Tennessean article sheds a lot of light on some of these questions:

    1. If games are cancelled, fans can send in a written request to get their money back. Otherwise, Bud applies it to next season.

    2. Using replacement players is a league issue and can happen.

    If they use replacement players, does the money count to that season?

    and NFL Live just said again that there can't be scabs because the scenario is the owners locked out the players
