"We've got owners, most of whom are worth close to $1 billion, you've got players who are making millions of dollars. My working assumption at a time when people are having to cut back, compromise, and worry about making the mortgage and, you know, paying for their kids' college education, is that the two parties should be able to work it out without the President of the United States intervening.
"I'm a big football fan, but I also think that for an industry that's making $9 billion a year in revenue, they can figure out how to divide it up in a sensible way. And be true to their fans, who are the ones who, obviously, allow for all the money that they're making. So my expectation and hope is that they'll resolve it without me intervening, because it turns out I've got a lot of other stuff to do."

I remember hearing Obama saying multiple times before he was elected that he was going to try and set up a playoff system for college American football if elected Joke or not, if he followed through, it would have been his best accomplishment thus far.
I agree. These owners and players are multimillionaires. And they cannot agree on money problems when the average Joe is just scraping by? They should be less selfish and remember who is giving them their money. If the season doesn't play out because of this, I think it's time for the fans to strike their teams, and refuse to attend the games after the strike is settled.
I don't particularly care, I prefer hockey and football myself...
