Len Berman writes that "The NFL released its preseason schedule yesterday. Exactly what football fans were waiting for. They hate preseason games to begin with, and they hate them even more because as of now there is no season. On top of that, the NFL will stage its draft in a couple of weeks. In other words, business as usual. Try telling that to the lowly team employees who have been laid off or have had their salaries slashed"
That's right, we forgot about the regular working slugs that don't make a million a year for word processing. Or, come the fall, the kids that are paying their way through college as vendors during NFL games.
The NFL lock out is unconsiounable. What will be interesting is, if the NFL goes with scabs like the did in the 80's, will Stephen Harper allow scab workers to play at Tronna's Rogers Centre?
