    Never done a poll so will just ask the Question. If there is a lock out and an agreement can't be made by owners and players and they bring in "replacements" will you watch NFL still?

    This is my personal and humble opinion on the matter; I am a union steward and highly pro union. I will side with the players and ban all things NFL if they try to bring scabs in to play in the unions place. I am sure some folks just want to watch football but like I said IF an agreement can't be made and RATS are brought in to play, You will not see me at the stadium nor will I support ANYTHING NFL.

    Just my opinion I'm sure others have way different opinions.

    I don't care...Union or owners....Neither group really cares about me, the fan. Screw them all. if I can see Football, I'll watch football and let the "labor" problems be worked out by the people who bring this crap on. That is both owners and players.

    I don't know. All I know is that last time this happened and The Oilers had scab players, teams like the Oilers that were struggling began to be good teams. The Oilers made the playoffs 7 times in a row after the strike. I'd take anything right now.

    I'm not voting because there isn't a "No - I tend not to watch sloppy football" option.

    I might be wrong, but I thought "replacement" players can not be used because it is a lockout instead of a strike. so, theres no football period.

    I did last time so I imagine I will again.

    Being an Irish and Texan fan I am used to watching sub-par football.

    Now would I pay to watch it is altogether another question.

    No offence, but it does beg the question how many Texans games you've watched?

    NFL football is the only sport I want to watch. I'll catch another sport on tv, but rarely.

    I voted Yes, but who knows? If the owners brought in scabs, they'd lose revenue, so I'm OK with that. If scabs play, they will be playing without the huge ego that the current players have, so I'm OK with that.

    The owners can't bring in scabs, can they? They could if the players were striking, but since the owners are locking the players out, they can't bring in replacements, right?

    No offense taken - Texans football is the only exception to that rule.

    I'd totally watch. Like Eriodic said, a lot of these new players wouldn't have the egos and would be happy to be there and playing all out. A part of me would be more happier watching athletes like that competing who make less money and go all out.

    Ive worked a union job in the past ... wasnt impressed with the production and general laziness of the union worker not to mention the wastefulness in both time and materials. I did appreciate the good wages and benifits .... not to mention all the money I won off of my co-workers playin 42.


    I can hear the Union players now .... its time for a coffee break , someone get the domino's



    This is entertainment - I just want to watch some damn football .... dont give a damn who's playin from Pop Warner league to the NFL.

    Like several people have said, in a lockout situation, I don't think that there will be scabs. But if there were replacement players brought in, I would totally watch.

    I'm not pro-union to begin with. I've been in a couple of unions and lived near New Jersey for a while.

    And it's football. And some of these guys could turn into real players from this chance.

    Beat me to it.

    Unless the Union decertifies, then I think they could.

    He's too busy directing Cowboys & Aliens & the next Iron Man movie.
