MOCK OWNERSHIP VOTE: Yes, I have too much time on my hands, but this is actually instructive. After speaking with people around the league this is how some in football think the ownership vote would go for a new collective bargaining agreement as its being currently constructed.

Patriots--yes
Jets--yes
Dolphins--yes
Bills--no
Steelers--yes
Ravens--yes
Browns--yes
Bengals--no
Colts--yes
Jaguars--unknown
Texans--yes
Titans--yes
Chiefs--yes
Chargers--yes
Raiders--who knows
Broncos--yes
Eagles--yes
Giants--yes
Cowboys--no
Redskins--no
Bears--yes
Packers--yes
Lions--yes
Vikings--yes
Falcons--yes
Saints--yes
Bucs--yes
Panthers--yes
Seahawks--yes
Rams--yes
49ers--yes
Cardinals--yes

I've got four no votes. Say the "who know" and "unknown" both go no. That's still only six no votes. Say I got two owners wrong (I don't think I did) and there were two additional no votes that's still only eight no votes. Owners wanting to block a new deal would need nine.

I put Carolina as a yes despite hard ass Jerry Richardson owning the team because Richardson has been heavily involved in the talks with players. I don't see him voting against a deal he so heavily constructed.

With respected owners like Robert Kraft and John Mara backing a new agreement and hawk Richardson perhaps being a convert, this deal likely passes. Emphasis on likely since you ultimately never know how these votes will go. But I think owners actually pass a new CBA fairly easily.

See you Tuesday.

Yes, you are a troll.

Most of us can not stand and can not understand why many of you just bash the writers all day.

The answer is simple:  GO ELSEWHERE and STFU

Kind of bizarre that the two biggest spending teams with newer stadiums (Cowboys & Redskins) and two small market teams that ALLEGEDLY have been struggling (Bills & Bengals) all vote no.  You would think the deal would favor one or the other.

The problem, nathan2940, is that you never bothered reading the second sentence of Freeman's piece.  He clearly states...

The only point in time that he says anything that resembles his own opinion has to do with Richardson.  See, the reason you're being called a troll is because you didn't even bother paying attention to the article at all.  Instead you flapped off at the mouth and it turns out that you're wrong.  Next time you want to flame someone, at least do a little research (i.e. reading the piece you're flaming.)

"I will never understand why people come to sports sites to bitch about stuff like this.  If you don't like it, go surf somewhere else!"

I will never understand why people come to sports sites to bitch about other's bitching, lol.  If you don't like it, ignore it.

Wait, you come to sports sites to read what Mike Freeman has to say about what owners he has not spoken to might do regarding a deal that is not even in place as of yet?  Good God, and I wonder why the death of journalism has gone so unnoticed.

Trolls will be trolls. Sometimes it's a phase, usually male adolescence, especially the extended sort. Sometimes it's the screw-tape worm whispering in their ear from within the woodwork. Sometimes it's just ulcers, indigestion, or a lousy marriage or boss

Let me get this straight.  I post a comment on the quality of a Mike Freeman piece, like hundreds of people do daily, and you comment on a comment about my comment, and I'm the troll?  Lol. 

(PS, it's the worm whispering in my ear)

Giantsfan128:

Let me get this straight, we are supposed to read this hypothetical voting, on a hypothetical CBA, based on Freeman's opinions, all like it means something?  L O L.  What will they think of next?

Jerry's only problem with the CBA has to do with revenue sharing.  He wants to share less, that's all.

Do you really think Jerry Jones would say no? Why? I remember him being in some meetings with the commisioner. That would seem, IMO,

to be that Jerry is working on the CBA on a positive note. But that's just my opinion, So why do you say he would say no?

Wow.  Four of the worst owners in pro sports would vote no.  Big surprise......

Here's my question.  Where's the racism slant that usually litter Freeman's articles?  I'll wait.  I'm sure it'll be in an update.

Al Davis (Oakland) would vote yes. Remember that he was instrumental in getting the last labor deal passed (he basically sat down at the head of the room and sold it to the fence-sitters), and he'll want this one passed as well.
