Who do the fans think is to blame the current situation in the NFL?

I have read alot of articles over the last six months by various journalists, players, owners, league officials etc. and they all seem to claim that one side or the other does not want a settlement?

I wonder what the fans on this website actually think? Hence the attached poll.

Did boths sides ever enter the negotiations actually wanting to make a new deal?

For what it is worth, here are my thoughts on the whole affair

I dont think either side has ever wanted to negotiate, they just want the opposition to accept their demands.

Any time two side enter negotiations with stances that are both unreasonable and turn out to be non negotiable then no real negotiations can happen. The players wanted financial information that the owners dont give to anyone, not even each other and the League wanted the players to give them hundreds of millions of dollars.

But even then I think this is just a smokescreen, the two sides are actually fighting for control of the league. Which might be why the whole process has desended into such a farce now, with both sides acting like spoiled children in the playground.

So I think they should share the blame equally.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
