I was beginning to really worry -  The NFL is one thing that makes saying goodbye to Summer a little easier - Thank GOD they got their feces consolidated - What a refief!  

Now let's just play football for the next ten years.  Don't add games.  Don't go international.  Just play some good American, NFL freaking football.  Don't fix what ain't broke -

What strike? Nobody was working anyway. Most players did tyhe same stuff on their own. A real strike happens when real money can be lost. This was a joke.
