They say a picture is worth a thousand words and this time I agree. The painting above by Nicolas Poussin symbolizes the end of a long trek by football fans the world over. The journey started in early March, and has gone on for roughly one hundred and thirty-three days, and there was very little “Manna from Heaven” along the way.
I’m as worn out from all the fussing and fighting between both sides as you are, and will make this article short. It appears almost certain that the owners and players have finally reached an agreement to end the lockout. Yes.
No, I don’t have a crystal ball, but I do have this from ESPN:
The NFL Players Association and the league’s owners have reached agreement on the remaining points needed in their 10-year labor deal, sources from both sides said.
The sources appear valid. Look, there will be mountains of cyber-text generated across the world after I post this, I shall not try to compete with it now. In my mind it is enough for now.
No, it is not engraved upon tablets of granite by the fingers of the Almighty Himself, but I feel comfortable in reporting it. As writers here at WDD we can only do the best we have with what we have to work with at the time. If we jump the gun we look like idiots, if we are as timid as mice and miss breaking the scoop we look like fools.
Look, someone needed to back Gene Higginbotham up, Gene made note of it earlier. Idiot or fool I may be, but timid I am not. I sincerely hope my words come to pass. Thanks for being a part of WhoDatDish, and what we try to do here.
