The NFL has put a sour taste in the fans mouth

This is getting to be ridiculous. Judge Nelson lifts the lockout so that the players can go hang out at team facilities? Or they can workout if they are supervised? What the hell is going on with the league? Don't they realize that ultimately 
the fans are the one that they have to worry about the most? Without fans, THERE IS NO NFL! There is no billionaires vs millionaires fight club!

 

The judge it appears just wants the league and it's players to just settle this mess and get the season started. The lockout lift is good for the simple fact that it pushes owners and the league to settle their differences faster, but it also confuses the players and the fans. The fans just want football in 2011 and beyond, they are the ones paying the owners to be able to pay their millionaire players.

 

This is getting to be ridiculous beyond reasonable doubt and I sincerely hope that Judge Nelson does the right thing and give the players their share of the TV revenue and adjust the rookie wage scale in favor of the veterans who have been in the league a few years. However, I don't think the players get to do whatever they want and get the upper hand over the owners. I think they should always have the edge because they are the boss, but do what's fair for the players and give the fans what they deserve.

 

The fans of the NFL are the most loyal and giving of all fans of any sport. They shell out millions and millions of dollars on tickets, apparel, and the tv ratings for NFL broadcasts are astounding. If they don't have football in 2011 or if it's even shortened, it will have a domino effect on the popularity of the NFL and the league will most likely lose money, ALOT of money.

 

Judge Nelson, do the right thing and give the fans what they deserve, PLEASE!
