09:39 AM ET 03.02 | All Chiefs employees -- including general manager Scott Pioli, coach Todd Haley and president Mark Donovan -- would see a pay reduction if the NFL experiences a work stoppage. The salary-reduction plan would be phased in over eight months, according to a Chiefs source with knowledge of the plan. No employees will be laid off or furloughed. Employees would retain full benefits.

Not so bad to have full benefits... I know some folks that would take partial ones.

Their future win total will receive a 'cut' also...

All the secretaries and hot dog vendors are going to take a hit for the millionaires. If the teams start laying people off the taxpayers will take a hit.
Lets all agree to boycott the first regular season game just to remind them who really pays the bills.

And the owners still get paid the billions from the TV deal. Games or no games.
" ESPN, NBC, CBS, Fox and DirecTV have agreed to fork over an estimated $4 billion regardless of whether football is played or not."

But it may be different? I hope so.
"Judge Doty ruled that the NFL breached its duties to the NFLPA under a previously negotiated settlement agreement when it re-negotiated television rights deals with the various partners, including CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, and DirecTV. (for those that are into that sort of thing, you can see the full 28-page opinion laying out the facts and reasoning here)

Basically, Judge Doty found that the NFL had an obligation under the terms of the SSA (stipulation and settlement agreement) to exercise good faith and best efforts to maximize total revenue for the NFL and the players. Television contracts comprise about half of the total revenue, and soon after the owner???s opted out early from the current agreement with the players that expires this week, they began renegotiations to extend the television deals with the various providers."

The NFL insisted on altered lockout provisions

OMG! Does this mean they might actually have to get real jobs?

That might be better than what the owners would like them to receive.
