The lockout just recently ended, but the labor side of things in the NFL isn't totally over just yet, as there are some issues that have to be handled (though they will be).

To discuss what's left for the NFL and the NFLPA in the coming days of collective bargaining and whatnot, we talked with NFLPA spokesman George Atallah. While we had him on the phone, we also discussed whether or not the NFLPA will fight the league if it tries to implement the personal conduct policy for people who violated it during the lockout, what the future holds for labor discussions, if free agents raking in cash is a sign that the players won, what he thinks of the NFL lockout movie we mocked up (he's seen it!), and what advice he'd give to the NBA players.

All that and much, much more just by hitting the play button below. Oh, and don't forget to Subscribe to iTunes.

CBS Football Podcast: George Atallah talks labor

It drives me crazy when the fans complain about the ticket prices. If you want to not attend games or not watch football that is your choice but to complain about the prices is absurd. This is America that is how it works. If you owned a business wouldn't you sell our product for as much as you could? Google "capitalism" and "supply and demand" and maybe you can understand how our economy works. Don't go to the games if you want but quit your crying. Lastly if you are boycotting NFL football why are you on www.sports line.com/nfl?

Everyone wins except for the same sucker fans that continue to show up and pay.  They say that the approximate $3 billion brought in by the NFL from tickets is just a drop in the bucket, but yet they aren't willing to drop the price for the fans.  It is never about the fans, as long as there is a full house of suckers wiling to pay the price for what has increasingly amateurish set of performers.  I have been done with the NFL for a while, and soon to be done with NCAA football as well.  I still love the game, but this theater is no longer the game that I loved.
