If they don't decertify the power shifts to the owners for 6 months and that will end in an eventual decertification 6 months down the line.
Decertifying is actually going to speed up the process and at the same time slow it down. Now we just get court decisions and appeals for a few months and eventually football in the fall. I wouldn't worry too much about the lockout.
Thanks for clarifying the decertification meaning, I wasnt really quite sure what exactly that meant or what was going on except that they didnt come to an agreement.

I feel the same way. I just want it to be resolved and to be water under the bridge by the time the Season rolls around.

Dude the Seahawk's are decent, dont be so hard on them. They knocked the Saints out of the playoffs last year in the first round and nobody even gave them a chance before that game! They played hard and I think with a little bit of time they will be a solid team.
