This is stupid

Jerry Richardson, owner of the 1-15 Carolina Panthers, reacts to the ruling ending the lockout.

The lockout is over, but the players are still locked out. The owners didn’t like what the court told them, so they’re going ahead and doing what they wanted to do all along.

The owners have been licked. They’ve lost the battle in court, they’ve lost the battle for public opinion, and they seem surprised, like it hasn’t even hit them yet that they lost. Gregg Easterbrook breaks down how we got to this point (and who has benefited so far) in an unusually good edition of Tuesday Morning Quarterback.

The players want to play football; the fans want to watch football; only the owners want nothing to happen. I say fuck the owners. They should be grateful for the opportunity to be in the football business. They are making millions off of the sweat of their players and out of the checkbooks of their fans, every year, no matter how well or poorly they run their teams. But then you’ve got owners like Jerry Richardson of the 1-15 Carolina Panthers, pictured above, who kicked this whole thing off so many months ago with the rallying cry, “we’re going to take our fucking league back.” Whatever that means, you fucking dumbass old man. It was never your league. Fuck you.

As soon as the owners grow up and stop acting like babies, maybe we’ll finally have some football to talk about.

About The Warren Peace NFL Report

Warren is Redskins fan living in Bronco country. He’s co-founder of the Team Tomorrow ski and snowboard team, and a guy at the bar last Sunday told him, “you know a lot about football for a weirdo.” His favorite conversation about football happened sitting inside a giant volcano at Colorado's regional Burning Man high on LSD.
