Ah, the NFL lockout, how I love thee.
After yesterday’s debacle where the owners approved a new labor deal and then the players decided not to vote because they didn’t like a couple minor issues, it’s come to this.
The players have decided not to do anything until Monday and the owners have decided to tell the players, “take it or leave it you fucking assholes!”
Okay, maybe they didn’t say that exactly, but Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy did tell local reporters the league is done negotiating.
“We’ve put our pens down,” Murphy said. “We’ve negotiated in good faith with the union. We’ve reached an agreement on all the key points.
“They know what we ratified and they’re voting to ratify the same thing.”
What does that mean?
Well, if Murphy is a man of his word, it means the players will either have to approve the same labor deal the owners did, reform their union and get the hell back to work or we’re at a stalemate that’s going to make this goddam, ass-fucked situation drag on for some time.
Had the players voted and approved the deal today, team facilities would have been open Saturday and free agency would have started Wednesday. That schedule will be pushed back.
If the players decide to approve the deal on Monday, facilities could open Tuesday.
Before anyone jumps on the players, there was a semi-valid reason they decided not to vote today. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s wife’s funeral was held this morning.
There was speculation the players would vote in the afternoon, but they decided against it, saying the decision was made out of respect for the Krafts.
So, we wait another weekend.
I’ve just recently started reading this site.
If you don’t stop printing this kind of obscene
trash I’ll find a better way to spend my time.
Whoever this, “Monty”, is, had to put 350 of
the likes on facebook himself. Monty, here’s
some terrific advice for you. Apply for a job
with Murdoch, you’d be a perfect fit with him.
no one asked you to come here binkeefuckface. If you dont like it, go to nfl.com and leave our “shit-hole” alone
Please go back to trolling with the idiots on the ESPN boards. No need for the hate on this forum. Although I do miss ripping on the queen fans. Where did those guys go anyway? Probably out making buncles. That’s brother uncles for the slow kids
I’ve been a Packer fan for over 60 yrs and am
ashamed of any Packer fan that would even
think of this as good writing. Most of the true
Packer fans are good sports and none of you
who thinks this garbage is great is one of them.
“True Packer fans.” Brett, is that you?
BinKee you’re entitled to your opinion but maybe as someone just getting familiarized with the site, you’re missing the point. Think of it as satire for adults that don’t mind cursing and talking like we we’re in the locker room.
And as far as Monty goes…he’ll cross some lines you’d rather he didn’t…but generally speaking it’s not enough to keep me away. Like the story about…Who might not be in shape….it’s a useless story and you’d know that by reading the headline.
Stay away if you must, but until you do all the work and dedicate time to a lot of good stories…along with some not so great stories on slow days, your opinion has no merit here.
Buckle up your chinstrap.
Furthermore…you know damn well that’s exactly what Murphy would want to say.
Thanks, hombre, at least you rip me another
one, like the other jerks.
Hang in there BinKee…you’ll get into the swing of things.
Monty tells it like it is. Th eonly reason I check this blog daily is because he says things the way I would say them. He’s a true fan, regardless of your thoughts on his vocabulary.
Also, fuck the lockout.

Binkee, Your latest addition of AARP is in your mailbox, enjoy the read.
