Owners Opt out of Current Collective Bargaining Agreement

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell held a Press Conference in Atlanta following the Owners exercising their option to not continue with the CBA beyond 2010.
"It's not working, it's not failure of the ownership, it's failure of the deal."

Goodell stated, you can watch the press conference here. I guess what those at ESPN and Talk Radio would have us do is to freak out. However, do you really think it's realistic that there won't be an NFL season in 2012?

I do not think that it is possible for the NFL to field teams with replacement players at this day and age. The potential onslaught on the Owners of the NFL from Fantasy Football Players alone will be enough for everyone to straighten this out long before it becomes a headache.
