    I just read on Pro Football Talk that free agency could be pushed back until April because their trying to work out a new CBA. That would put a lot of teams in a bind since there wouldn't much time between then and the draft. Plus, we would have to wait another fricken month to wonder who the Dolphins will sign. I hope this doesn't happen.

    IF that is the case, then the month of March will be a very boring month. Thank god for NASCAR and golf, because I hate basketball. Guess I'll just have to spend more time up in the mountains.
    I doubt that happens, but if means a new deal, then I'am for it.

    Ya, it would. Teams would only have a couple of weeks to sign players before the draft. Normally, who you pick up in free agency changes the way you will draft as far as positions of need. So there would be a mad scramble in early April to sign free agents.

    I hope not....I can't wait for us to get some guys in free agency and then we'd have time to talk about the draft after that but if is only 2 weeks before the draft is gonna get crazy.

    Ozzy rules!!

    That would be very bad of a lot of teams...obviously the owners and NFLPA are consulting the personnel guys about this...but I see the issue. Contracts for the FAs will be less because of the impending CBA agreement...

    While it would suck to have to wait for free agency...........I'd rather they take the extra time as long as it is definately going to result in a new CBA.

    Golf on TV is about as exciting as watching Flies reproduce on the nature channel, and Nascar is just a notch better, cars going around in circles......good time to actually live life a little instead watching others do it.

    Agreed. The only thing lamer than NASCAR is Women's hoops.

    Yea, I know what you mean. I love going up to the mountains, but you also need your tv time as well and college basketball sucks. The NHL is good come playoff time.

    dont think so

    its too late in the game to change the schedule. I doubt it, too many coaches would make a stink.

    Sounds like a blast. I can only do downhill skiing though. Here's a little advice, if you feel yourself starting to fall......aim for people. People tend to be a lot softer than trees. People tend to say a few words, but its better than making toothpicks with your head. :lol:

    No kidding, I don't think alot of people know the ramifications if this deal doesn't get done. The salary cap will go poof and the Washington Redskins will become the New York Yankees of the NFL and bring in all the high priced players they want.

    Yeah it would it will be interesting to c who Miami could pick up if that happens. Though I dont think it will change what we draft as much considering Saban goes for the best player available.

    My Cavaliers are having a good season so at least I can enjoy that while I wait for FA signings.

    that sucks for two reasons, 1 we gotta wait over a month, 2 the article stated that it will make it harder for teams to pick up free agents, and make it less lucrative for the players to go into the FA and try to get on other teams....

    How exactly would CBA negotiations effect free agency? I don't see why they would. It would seem to me that these are two seperate activities

    Because one of the biggest issues in the CBA is the salary cap.

    What really needs to happen is the union needs to stop being greedy and get the CBA signed.

    the issue is profit sharing between owners, the union has nothing to do with it
