After 100 days, the NFL lockout is still in full swing and an end doesn't seem close. Well I shouldn't say that. With the "secret" talks between the NFLPA and the NFL happening every week, something could happen any day, but the chances of that are unlikely if you ask me.
I really don't think it should take this long to figure out how to split up $9 billion.
The previous collective bargaining agreement gave players 57 percent of that $9 billion in revenue. Well now since that bargaining agreement has ended, the owners see it as a good time to argue for more of a percentage of that $9 billion. I know it's business, but when that much money is involved, it is simply about greed at that point.
The average NFL player makes between $700,000 to $2 million a year. That is ridiculous. They're are usually 1,696 players in the NFL in a season under the payroll. That's a lot of money going to overpaid athletes who only play 18 games in a season. Who knows when the NFLPA and NFL will come to terms, but I know if they don't, these things will happen.
