    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

    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"?

    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.

    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.
