[a] officiating crises, culminating with a MNF glaring / game changing bad call for the world to see
[b] a bunch of folks locked up for most of a day and a half to push a deal to completion

Sounds easy enough.

I hope our crisis doesn't have to be full loss of a season - again.
Big difference: A lost NHL season doesn't move $150M worth of sports bets on a blown call. That's where the real pressure on the NFL likely came from...
