So if there is an agreement reached and training camps open in the near future, what will happen to all the current UFAs? Will there just be a mad scramble for their services?? What will Z do???

i'm curious to see all the problems surface with players getting out of their european contracts
strike resolution opt-out or not, you gotta figure there are going to be issues with some players

My friend told me that there is a guy on 2 Bills Drive that says armed forces radio is reporting that the union has lowered it's number to 46 or 47 mil.

Didn't the players say in the past that they would never accept a salary cap?

Those damn hypocrites could have actually been negotiating for months but instead they chose to stall and try to pull a deal out of fantacy land. Now, who cares if we have a season, what kind of season will it be, 20 games?

Try to get a deal but still cancel the season, and start fresh next year!

To be fair, the league also insisted on linkage which they were ultimately willing to part with. Both sides could have bent well before the CBA even expired, but that ain't how politics work. Better luck next year.
