NFL Lockout Ending Soon While NBA Lockout About to Kick In

NBA Lockout

Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers said in regard to the NFL lockout:  "Everybody has a sense it will end soon.  It's just matter of how soon is soon."

And it if doesn’t end soon, players will have to follow another Sunday tradition.

“Go to church,” he said. 

Good advice.  But it does appear the NFL lockout days are numbered.

Unfortunately, an NBA lockout is looming in its wake.

Union chief Billy Hunter said Thursday "it's obvious the lockout will happen tonight" after players and owners failed to reach a new collective bargaining agreement, potentially putting the 2011-12 season in jeopardy.

Despite a three-hour meeting Thursday and a final proposal from the players -- which NBA leaders said would have raised average player salaries to $7 million in the sixth year of the deal -- the sides could not close the enormous gulf that remained in their positions.

"The gap is too great," Hunter said.

The NBA lockout is expected to last longer than the NFL lockout, experts are predicting.
