    Default NFL players union decertifies

    NFL players union decertifies
    Friday, March 11, 2011
    The Associated Press
    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The NFL players' union has decertified, making the league's first work stoppage since 1987 a near-certainty.

    After 16 days of mediated talks with the NFL, the sides could not reach agreement on a new deal. The current one expires at the end of Friday, and the league could lock out its players.

    By decertifying, the union has cleared the way for individual players to file antitrust lawsuits against the NFL, which opted out of the CBA in 2008. It has renounced its right to represent the players in contract bargaining.

    The CBA was due to expire a week ago and was extended twice.

    The union's latest move sets the stage for a lengthy court fight that could potentially threaten the 2011 season.

    Looks like we are heading for at least a shortened season. It didn't look like this was going to get resolved.

    Did they use backup players/scabs in 1987 for a little while?

    Do you remember the QB that we had during the scab games? He wound up getting a spot on the roster after the strike.

    What was that guy's name?

    I honestly dont remember the scabs. I guess I didnt follow that closely as a kid. I still think they will be playing football when the season starts. Not really that worried about it.

    I remember the scabs in my second year of liking football ever. Yeah those were the days. But doubt they will ever do something like that again.

    Steve Bono is correct. He ended up having a decent career with KC.
