    I live about two miles from CSU Fort Collins, which is Joey Porter's alma mater. I might just get happy about them instead.

    There's always more hunting and fishing to do, as well.

    Let's not overreact here. There were player strikes in 1982 and 1987. We kept watching afterward. If there is a lockout in 2011, we will still watch afterward.

    The entire 2004-2005 hockey season was wiped out because of a lockout (first time a major sport cancelled a complete season, and the first time the Stanley Cup was not awarded since 1919), but I still watch hockey now.


    Ruthless 2017 Mock Draft:
    1.30 ILB Zach Cunningham 6'3" 234 Vanderbilt
    2.62 OLB Jordan Willis 6'4" 255 Kansas State
    3.94 CB Sidney Jones 6'0" 186 Washington
    3.105c DE Tanoh Kpassagnon 6'7" 289 Villanova
    4.135 CB Howard Wilson 6'1" 184 Houston
    5.173 FS John Johnson 6'1" 205 Boston College
    6.213 TE Michael Roberts 6'4" 270 Toledo
    7.248 RB Elijah Hood 6'0" 232 North Carolina

    I think I've heard it's a virtual certainty that there will be a work stoppage. I don't know much about the NFL situation, etc. But in terms of our economy, I'm sure that there will be HUGE differences of opinion. In general, people think (and are led to believe) that this recession is just another recession (a temporary blip)... I think it's quite contrary. I think we are about to experience a dramatic (long-term) contraction in our standard of living.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.

    I don't see how anyone would know it's a virtual certaintly. It's all speculation at this point. I'll believe it when I see it.

    And a couple of weeks after the NFL announces this, Directv will announce their annual price increase for Sunday Ticket.
    Franchise Bell; extend Brown; re-sign Harrison, D. Williams, and Matthews; sign the best of the available 2nd-tier FA help at Edge, ILB, CB, and maybe FS. Hope that Ladarius Green is healthy.

    Draft 2.0
    1. Haason Reddick, ILB/OLB, Temple
    2. Carl Lawson, OLB/DE, Auburn
    3. Chad Hansen, WR, California
    3. Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State
    4. Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado
    5. Tedric Thompson, FS, Colorado
    6. Aaron Jones, RB, UTEP
    7. Keion Adams, OLB/DE, Western Michigan
