Not so dumb after all?

I knew they couldn't be that dumb.

I just knew it.

Rich men like NFL owners usually don't get rich doing dumb things. And players really just want to play football while they can.

Add it up, and it's why we're seeing progress in the labor situation -- however little it may be.

The news that the two sides have spent the past two days talking is great news. The cancellation of the scheduled federal mediation next week is great news.

Now we're waiting for the best news of all: We have the NFL back.

It's been too long. We want trades. We want free agency. We want OTAs (did I just write that?) to help get football back in the forefront of our thoughts.

I want to plan my camp tour. I want to see rookie quarterbacks working with their teams.

I want the NFL back.

I think the news that the two sides are talking sends a big message that the morons on both sides have been way too hardheaded and that it's time to negotiate, not litigate.

I also think the players are restless. I've talked to several in the past two weeks and, almost to a man, I got the sense they weren't truly up on what was going on and seemed antsy to get back to work.

Could that be what is driving these talks?

Or is it that the owners with tons of stadium debt -- men like Jerry Jones -- are realizing that they need games in those stadiums this fall?

Whatever the reason, it matters none.

They're talking again.

It's a step toward getting football back and sending those attorneys back to the boardrooms where they belong.

This reminds me way too much of issues that will never be resolved:

It wasn't Ron Artest and Stepen Jackson that got screwed, it was the Pacer franchise and its fans.

Pete Rose is 70 years old and is still waiting for a parole hearing, or, at least, throw Gaylord Perry out of the HOF.

Dallas intentionally got its Super Bowl bid before Indianapolis, even through Indy's stadium was opened before Dallas's stadium.  If Indy has to yewait untl 2015 Peyton Manning's ablilties will have waned considerably.  Oh, yeah. I forgot: the Super Bowl is supposed to be on a NEUTRAL site.  

It's been 47 years since the Kennedy assassination, and is a crime still largely unresolved.

Why does a travel guide to Jerusalem have a Mosque on its cover?

Why am I awake at 4 am?

In The Lion King, Scar was right about one thing: "life's not fair."    



At least Prisco is getting paid.

Just get it done. I need to stop agreeing with Prisco articles and resume calling him a moron because of his opinions ON the field!!!

One advantage of the lock out has been a decrease in Prisco 3rd grade level articles. Thanks Owners!


After suffering through daily shoutouts from Mike Freeman all offseason, and his pathetic attempt to fool real fans into believing the owners were at fault, compounded by the idiotic responses by the likes of jack_sprat and shkrefty or whatever...

Pete Prisco is refreshing and looks Pulitzer prize winning in comparison.
