With the Union's declaration that they would not play an 18-game regular season, and the league trying every possible way to not fully open their finances to inspection, the lockout is once again looming.
If the clock finally strikes midnight and a full-fledged lockout begins, how will teams react? Will teams be capable of weathering several months where management has no influence over their players? Will steroid use become rampant among players? Will we see a spike in poor off-field decisions?
The last two times that the league experienced a work stoppage, the Redskins went on to win the Super Bowl. Sadly, with the amount of turnovers the Redskins will most likely experience this offseason (if there ever is an offseason) as well as weaknesses in personnel all over the roster, things are not looking too rosy in D.C. right now.
So if football armageddon arrives and a lockout begins, what will be the effects upon the Burgundy & Gold?
