Is anyone concerned about this....
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith paints a bleak picture of the league's labor situation.
Smith says the likelihood of a lockout after the upcoming season is "14" on a scale of 1 to 10. He notes that the league recently received a $5 billion extension on its network television deals even if no games are played in 2011. He regards that as proof owners are preparing for a lockout.
Smith reiterated the union's demand that the NFL's 32 teams open their books and show who is losing money and how much.
