Wow I really did not know this! there will be no more NFL draft after 2008 and all college players will become Free Agents. I don't like the new NFL! Players and Owners need to realize that this is not Hockey and ppl to actually care!

This is really bad. I'm seriously worried, some of the magic of the NFL could be out the window by the end of the day.

College would be ruined also! people would go to the NFL draft after 1 year and maybe even after High School. I am really worried also!

This will be good for whoever wins the Super Bowl that year, since everyone would (or at least should) want to be on that team.

C'mon...the owners could still agree to have a draft. It is in their own interest to design a sense of fairness in the system whether there is a players association or not.

Acting like the NFL is totally helpless without a players union is silly. If the union is decertified, life in the NFL will go on. Even if they keep the current pay structures and guidlines in place the players would get more revenue because of all the wasted funds going to the players union.

not only would the owners get the draft going themselves, but the draft itself is a big moneymaker. they'd want it no matter what, and there will always be one.

The owners could agree to have a draft but without some type of agreement with the players there will be no draft.
The NFL is beginning to look a lot like it did in the pre 1970s. I guess Gene Upshaw is finally going to get his wish.

That makes me think that if it happens like that the NFL will become like MLB. Like there would be one team that is like the Yankees, that gets all the big name, big money guys, and there will be a rival for that team (like the Red Sox are for the Yankees) and then the rest of the league will just be filler. Let's face it, unless you are a fan of a paticular non-Yankees/Red Sox team, who the hell cares about the other teams? I can't stand baseball, played up from tee-ball up until sophmore year of high school, but I never watched it because it is so BORING and predictable. Basically either the Yankees or Red Sox get all the big players because they are the big rivalry and the only teams people pay attention to, unless they are huge baseball fans, and I see that happening (in theory) to the NFL if we drop the draft altogether and have college player free agency replace it.

last time i checked baseball had a draft
so did the NHL and so does the NBA
how will the NFL not having a draft be the same as baseball or anyother Major league sport?
If anything the NFL would be the only sport with that crappy system
if i were a betting man id bet this gets resolved quick and we retain the current system

Baseball does have a draft but they don't play for that team for years if any. they go thru the minors it seems like forever.
