NFL Owners Opt Out of Players' Union Contract. There Could Be No 2011 Season. Chargers Less Likely To Leave
National Football League owners today (May 20) voted unanimously to opt out of the collective bargaining agreement with players. The players union says that a lockout is possible in 2011. "All this means is that we will have football now until 2010 and not until 2012," said the head of the players union. The outside attorney for the players union said that following the owners' move, the players will ask for a greater share of revenues. They now get 60 percent of revenues. There is definitely a chance of a lockout erasing the 2011 season. With this hanging over football, would any city shell out money to get a team to relocate there? The move may hurt the Chargers' chances of finding a new home outside of San Diego.
