The biggest issue is the Collective Bargaining Agreement, but that's essentially moot. There is going to be an uncapped year, and then a lockout. There is an off chance that maybe some teams will fold, the players will end up with a larger slice of the pie...but nothing will really change about the game-just the business.

But, what should the NFL really be looking at?

Limiting concussions? A rookie salary cap? Looking at the effects of biased referees (a HUGE issue this season)? Expansion?

I'm going to say that the NFL should look into a rookie salary cap. It's silly to pay a kid coming out of college $60 million...and they may or may not be any good.

Look at the NHL as a model. Rookies have a max of a 3 year/$900k contract.

This allows teams to responsibly evaluate potential without breaking the bank on a failure.

And then, to compensate the players for this lack of an eight-figure paycheck, after the short deal they become unrestricted free agents--remove the restricted free agent status.

This will have the benefit of allowing talent to be evaluated on-the-job, allowing smaller school players to have more of a shot (if you're only investing $900k, you can gamble more often), and will free up salary cap space to allow for more players to be paid more--a net increase in average salary.

Hmmmm, I'm rambling.

I just wanted to point out that the superbowl was boring, I nearly fell asleep at in the 4th quarter. Sorry Dhampy for posting this here, I didn't want to start a new thread just to say this.

It's all good. I only found myself on my feet once--and that was when Manning was picked off for a TD. In an average Packer game, I'm on my feet for half of the game.

I must admit that for the last superbowl (Steelers vs Cards) I was screaming the whole 4 quarters. That was a superbowl game, but last night... what a disappointment.

I was amused to find out that at the last minute, Obama switched his loyalty to the Colts. And then the Colts lost.

Obama is 0-8.

I thought last year was way more boring. I honestly couldn't care less about Cards-Steelers, at least with the Saints in the superbowl you could root for a perennial loser and a tremendously likable cast of characters. (oh wait... <_<) I've seen was the 08 one though, mainly because 19-0 was on the line and I can't stand the Patriots.

As far as the game goes I didn't think it was boring at all really. You got to see a successful onside kick and Peyton Manning being ****ed off on the sidelines for the entire third quarter, what more could you ask for?
