I'll admit I have very little time available for understanding the complexities of the CBA and the impending lockout. I dedicate most of my time to artfully crafting my various Dungeons and Dragons characters so there is nary a time when I can really get into why all these rich fucks can't figure out a way to stay rich and have football come September. At any rate, Michael Silver of Yahoo!!!!!!! does a nice job of parsing the situation for morons like myself.
I know, I know...it's not heaving tits or perfectly-crafted asses but it will just have to DO for now, you sick fucks.
