People have been hearing a multitude of things regarding the lockout and if it is once again lifted. This time for good. We have heard that owners would consider “shutting down” the league in the event the final decision is not in there favor.
That is what we have heard, but this is what ESPN’s Chris Mortenson reports:
“As prominent NFL man says, please ignore concept being floated that NFL could shut down business if lockout lifted,” Mortensen writes on Twitter. “Not a chance, he says.” Mortensen later dismissed Goodell’s failure to take the option off the table by saying without elaboration, “I wouldn’t use it as a barometer of what’s real here.”
While anything may be possible, we may be able to at least rule out that idea.
