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
