NFL headed for lockout?

Hey Dukect here with another serving at the lounge so kick back relax and enjoy the show.

Well it looks like that the NFL will have something in common with the NHL in a couple of years, and that is; a lockout. If you don't know what a lockout is go to Wikipedia look for it yourself, I'm not a damn dictionary I'm a blogger. So with that out of the way lets get back on topic and that is the dreaded NFL lockout. The main reason I'm dreading this lockout is of course no more pro football(I know that the new USFL is coming next year but y'all know what I mean) and I love pro football.

But it seems to me that the main lesson from the NHL lockout are being ignored my the NFL. And that lesson is if you piss off your fan base they'll leave you and may never come back to your sport even if their own team is winning. Then again the NHL bounced back with lower ticket prices but they still bounced back. Maybe that's something the NFL should try lowering ticket prices but that probably wont happen but that would be great right.

Anyway I still don't think a NFL lockout will happen because at the end of the day the NFL is an 8 billion dollar company and the NFL owners don't want to kill the golden goose right?

Hope ya enjoyed yourself at the lounge see ya next time

The war on terror is over says the white house but was it even necessary to have a war on terror

Hey your in the dukect lounge sit back and relax for a while. Well the war on terror is over people so says the white house and, that's good right? I mean no more of those crazy colors warnings telling us we all going to die right? Probably not but its a nice thought though. Anyway saying the war on terror is over or rethinking it I believe is a great PR move for Pres. Obama. It shows that he realizes that moniker was a bad idea left by the former administration.

Terrorism is a tactic you cant have a war with a tactic even though this government has used terrorism in the past, but its a good start however, if the President wants to get serious about he would get our Army out of foreign country's and stop growing an empire around the world. But that wont happen will just keep going perceptual war and dept.But hey the war on terror is over, lets party

Hope ya enjoyed your self at the lounge see ya next time

friday night smackdown the best wrestling show no one is watching

Hey Dukect here with another serving at the lounge so kick back relax and enjoy the show.
WWE friday night smackdown has the best wrestling show by far we all know this. But question is why hasn't shown in the ratings. Well the main reason for this is the most obvious.It's on friday night the weakest night on a weekday lineup. I know smackdown is on a channel that most people don't know about or don't have. But I really think that being on friday nights puts it on very hard place to succeed.

I mean what do people do on a friday night most people go out to see a movie,play,or go out for drinks so you lose some fit not most of your audience there. Plus it doesn't help the fact that your on a network that when you reach a 2.0 that means your kicking ass.Also it doesn't help when your main show raw sucks so bad that people don't want to tune in on your other brands. My suggestion is that WWE switch show nights with Superstars so that so that people who do want to watch Smackdown but wont take away there social life and i think that superstars works better as friday show if you ask me why. Because in my eyes superstars would work a lot better as a week closer a true compilation of all of the brands best stuff of the week. But hey I could be wrong but is still think that smackdown would be better served on thursday than on friday

Well that it for this severing of the lounge so sorry it was late but i hope it was worth it

The wwe realizes they have a PPV in two weeks right?

Hey yall Dukect here in the first ever Dukect lounge blog so take a seat relax and enjoy to show. Well last nights Raw was very good the matches were from good to great but thats not what im going to talk about here. I'm going to talk about what raw is going to be next week i mean A last man standing match on an commercial free raw with the wwe title on the line. At this point why not have the ppv shown for free its not like the bash has been a money maker for the wwe anyway so why the non commercial raw for usa?

Its a stunt plain and simple the ratings for raw has been teh suck for awhile so there doing this very stupid plan for there ratings to bump from 3.2 to 4.1 so will it work? In my opinion no oh it will have a bump for a while but it will fizzle out cause there's no substance oh sure raw has all the tools to be just as good as smackdown. But as long as young hot wrestlers get squashed like Randy Orton the show will suck. But back to my point next week raw will be commercial free and have a last man standing match for the wwe title.

HHH vs.Orton LMS on raw will be very good no doubt but they all ready have a match six days later on PPV. So if you watch raw next week and they have the LMS whats the point to pay 40 bucks on a regular match? Oh ok you got Hardy vs. Punk for the World title and Carlito & Primo vs Rhodes & DiBiase for the tag belts and more good stuff along the way but this HHH/Orton LMS really confuse me why have it on raw why not wait for the PPV ya know make it special.

But hey thats my opinion I hope ya liked this first serving at the Lounge I hope to see yall agian sometime
