They might lose less this year, but after that when that war chest is gone they are gonna lose alot more. And dont let the owners fool you, they are not losing as much as they like to tell you. Sure some teams are losing money but how much of that has to do with poor management? Just like i bet the company you work for doesn't give you the employee accurate figures.

It worked in basketball? The average NBA salary is over 4 million dollars a year and players make more money that some NHL teams. If the owners won, i hate to see salaries if they had lost.

I will agree the NFLPA got worked, but wait till their CBA is up. Now thats gonna be ugly
