Billick: ‘Inconceivable’ That NFL Games Would Be Canceled

Less than 24-hours from the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement and fans watch from the outside as the future of their sport is decided at a negotiation table.

But just what exactly do that fans have to worry about? How far could this thing go?

“There’s going to be a season,” former NFL coach and current analyst, Brian Billick said on the Boers and Bernstein Show. “One thing we all know, we can all agree, there will be a deal at some point. The question becomes, how much of the game, and how much of each other are we going to trash along the way, and how much money are we going to cost ourselves up to that point. It is inconceivable to me that we would miss a game, that would go under the category of the galactically stupid.

“A lockout? Sure…If it doesn’t involve missing games, who cares? Do the fans really care? We’re going to have The Draft…Now we might miss some OTA days. Does it effect some training camp? Yes. But we’re not going to miss some games. It is just inconceivable to me that it would get to that point.”

    10 years ago I would have said it was “inconceivable and galatically stupid” that
    Martha Stewart would go to jail and I would have 4 kids. Both scenarios
    have come to fruition.

    Well Chris… then you may be inconceivably and galactically stupid for thinking that those inconceivable and galactically stupid scenarios would never happen. Just pointing out that its entirely conceivable and galactically possible…

    All signs point to lockout, decertification and litigation. I just dont believe that it is inconceivable that games are missed though it is probably unlikely.. Yes it would be ridiculously stupid but then again, when you have billionaires crying poor on the most profitable sporting empire ever, well… what can I say… anything is possible.

    I think the money issue is going to an arbitrator. In that case, I think the NFL would open their entire books only to the arbitrator and not to the NFLPA.

    why should I pay for my season tickets, due the first week of April, if no one can assure me of a season? And if I pay and there is no season, how do I get money back or where does it go? ask the Bears that question, they won’t respond to e-mails
