A poll from NFL.com I thought looked interesting.

So far on NFL.com these are the standings of the poll:

34%
If Brett Favre will return for a 20th season

24%
The ongoing labor negotiations

17%
If Michael Vick will get traded

14%
Where Julius Peppers winds up (Accidentally left this one out of the poll I created.

12%
Tim Tebow's draft status

Total Votes: 67590

I chose the Labor Negotiations. This is real stuff.. if no deal is reached we all lose. It will be interesting to see what happens.. everytime I hear lockout I think the NHL lockout that lasted for over a year.

Sorry to ask, But what do they mean by "labor negotiations"?http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/images/icons/icon11.gif

How much the teams make and how much the players make. This goes into the whole Collective Bargaining Agreement thing. I believe right now it's setup where the players get 60% of the profits, and the teams get 40%. From what I understand the players want to keep it the way it is, and the owners want to reverse it. It's a complicated subject.

I was wrong, the split is 75% players and 25% owners. Anywhere here is a story about it for ya, Aussie.

The above would be my order of interest. I have faith they'll reach a deal in the labor negotiations. The MLB strike years back should have provided an important lesson to the NFL as well. It took a long time for the MLB to regain fan support, and I'm not sure it has reached the pre-strike level even yet.

They should just go 50/50. I'm fairly certain the franchises share part of their profit with the NFL umbrella.

Sounds very complicated

I know they will probably reach an agreement (because nobody makes money if they don't), but it's still the most interesting to me.
