NFL Labor Talks Break Down

In case you didn't hear about it 36 times in one hour of SportsCenter, the doomed-from-the-start player/owner collective bargaining sessions finally broke down yesterday. The players' union has decertified and followed an antitrust lawsuit against the NFL

You are tearing me apart, NFL.

It's hard to say what's going to happen to the 2011 NFL season. We do know a few things: (1) there won't be any immediate progress, (2) the NFL Players' Association has replaced its website with this depressing graphic, and (3) Roger Goodell has made good on his promise and taken a $9,999,999 pay cut.

Sports Casual was lucky enough to obtain the footage below. While it is difficult to discern exactly who is on camera, the footage clearly shows the final few seconds before bargaining completely breaks down.
