    The players' union needs to learn a thing or two from MLB, when you strike you lose fans, and sometimes those fans don't come back. The NFL passed MLB in ratings when MLB players decided to take a break.

    Its hard to believe that these rich, spoiled children would even consider a strike given the current state of the economy and the tens of millions without jobls.

    On the other hand, just because they are, by-and-large, rich, spoiled children they could very well do exactly that.

    All the evidence you should need to conlude that Mike Florio is useless:

    "Before we go any farther with this one, we need to point out that the chances of it happening are ridiculously small."

    Maybe next time he'll lead with "I have no idea what I'm talking about . . .  " or perhaps, "This information has no basis in fact . . . "  or the ever-popular "This story isn't remotely true, but . . . "

    Coincidentally, all sorts of Patriot players' contracts run out at the end of this season.  Haven't thought this completely through myself, but I suspect this could get ugly for the other 31 teams.

    Actually, that "evidence" is all you need to conclude that Florio is very usefull. He has made a fantastic site. Some folks with limited football knowledge don't care for him (read some of the posts on his articles) but by and large look at the hits his site takes in everyday. Great place for reading strictly about football items as he brings up tiny "rumors" or articles and goes in depth i.e the reason he put that disclaimer. If you note, he is simply reporting the rumors not starting them and then goes on to say how miniscule that chances are of it happening.
    Being an attorney makes his knowledge of the looming lockout even more interesting. After stopping at the Globe, his site is the next stop of my day. The man knows football.

    It's entirely possible that Forio offers many people exactly what they want, and that it is merely my journalism training that is clouding my judgment, but a lead should be designed to spark interest in a story, to draw the reader in. When you preface what you are about to say with hints that the information is not reliable, that is as good as telling your reader, "Don't bother reading this." I suppose it's true enough that people peruse the internet differently than they would read a newspaper, and heaven knows the plethora (Si', El Guapo, you have a plethora) of outlets the interwebs provide has given us all manner of butchers, bakers and candlestick makers masquerading as writers, but if I have a million choices as to how to spend my time, starting off with the notion that what you're telling me likely isn't true is not the way to grab my attention.

    Hey Mike, different strokes for.... I understand your basis for disliking his site and I understand what your're saying BUT it IS a rumor site, he brought up that rumor as a rumor only. He did, however say that it is entirely improbable and the average NFL reader SHOULD come to the conclusion pretty much on their own that it's not very likely.
    I simply like the fact that he leaves no stones uncovered in his coverage ( I really need to get a thesaurus ! ) of the NFL.
    Peace out!

    Rich spoiled children that entertain you.

    You don't want them to be paid, then stop whining about it and move on.

    If they strike I hope the owners bring in a bunch of drunk replacements and every game is in the mud or snow. That's entertainment.

    Good thing I love college football too. They never go on strike.

    Come on Enoch asking alfie not to whine is like asking the sun not to rise in the East.
