TheSportsofLife: All we care is if there is a season. And there is, so..... Fans = Winners
dottsp: The big winner is the NFL. Have you seen so much media and fan attention on free agency, training camp and the upcoming season? The NFL is more popular then ever, all the fans are like children on Christmas morning now, waiting to open their presents...

Larry McCormick: Where's the love button. *
Jorge Astudillo: Finally! Football! Can't wait to get my hopes up to cheer for the Bears again lol
Efrain Gene Ramirez: About time! I love football, but I'm beginning to move away from Pro Football and rooting more for high school and college football where there's excitement and kids that just love to play. Don't get me wrong- I've been a die-hard Cowboys fan since 1972... I just hope I can change my mind soon about this league.
Bradley Glover: Thank god i dont know what i would do without the NFL cause college just isnt enough.
