Since the whole Story is too long to post, I decided to just give you the link. Any thoughts on this story. What do you think will happen by 2011.

interesting read. pretty accurate, IMO at least.

1st of all, the NFL will have a lockout. it will be brutal. the owners like jerry jones are hell bent on 'getting' the players. no matter what the cost.

the NBA is a different story. owners want a bigger piece of the pie, not to punish the players. expect a hard cap and a new lower max salary, fewer years on a contract and a higher age limit to enter the league, but the basic structure will be the same.

teams that are far over the cap are going to have problems, but everybody else should be ok.

I think they might have the CBA resolved by summer 2011. I can say one thing though. From the looks of it, A NFL lookout is much more definite than NBA.
