    Thanks so much for being such a role model for my children. I have three terrific kids, 2 boys and one girl. Both boys play all sports in middle school and my daughter plays golf and basketball. Your lockout and refusal to divide $9 billion dollars has helped our family realize the greed and selfishness of this sport! We have not renewed our NFL tickets and have donated our jerseys to the homeless. It was so refreshing to see my children understand it is just a “business” decision and we are saying NO to the NFL!

    It was great to be able to show them how NOT to act!

    Thanks so much!

    You guys, (both sides) are worse than the freaking govenment. Get your ducks lined up in a row and quit squabbling. There are lots of local businesses that depend on games played at home and your stupid lockout that threatens the season is hurting more people you and your multi-millian dollar pocketbooks.
