So yesterday the courts made a ruling on the lockout, and more importantly the wording of it paints a rather bleek picture for the players. Taking the opportunity to strike while the iron's hot the owners actually gave the players a new CBA offer hoping to capitalize on their newfound strength. What's odd though is that reportedly this new offer is actually better than the last offer they gave the players. We'll see if its any better than "the worst deal in the history of sports" but I'm hoping both sides see its time to sit down and hammer out a deal. In related news Smith is still a d-bag and I will be extremely disappointed if he's still involved with the NFLPA after his gross mismanagement.
