That’s a bet NFL owners had made before, and profited from before, and it’s no mistake that the union pushed the last dispute just far enough to where it would bleed into the season. If the union is going to get a better deal this time around, it needs to find a way to make the threat of games being canceled real鈥攚hich is much harder to do in football than it is in basketball or baseball, because players’ careers are shorter, they make less, and there are way more of them. This seems like a step in that direction. And if there’s any fight that NFL players are likely to unify over (and history says even this will be tough), it’s absolutely this one.
