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.

“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.
