No other sport would see fans happily wear something so silly looking. Get us a 2011 season and do it now.
To the NFL Fans: A 2011 season
I, for one, am tired of hearing so much about collective bargaining, who's talking to who, lockouts and labor agreements.
Football is the most popular sport in the United States. It's the perfect blend of strategy and brutality. You see every type of athlete and weather condition, and every week brings new and exciting moments, comebacks and highlights.
NFL fans are unlike any other fans in sports.
No other sport can see seemingly normal people stop what they are doing for a full day each Sunday to see moment-by-moment updates on their fantasy teams.
No other sport can bring in tens of thousands of fans in the bitter cold, pouring rain, or steaming heat.
No other sport will see grown men paint themselves or wear hats made to look like cheese.
Both sides of the table in the discussions over the collective bargaining agreement just need to get it done. Work together instead of against each other to finish it, because quite frankly the fans don't care about all the negotiations and holdouts.
We want to see the game. Make it happen.
