Baltimore Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth wants the fans to gather on the side of the players in their legal battle against the NFL team owners. He feels that if the fans support the player's attempt to get an injunction to block the lockout, that would force the owners to negotiate in better faith to reach a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
That might be a tough sell to the fans, who have overwhelmingly not chosen a side in this battle, preferring instead to form their own "side" as the people who pay the price to fill the stadiums and watch the games feel as if their feelings and investment in the NFL is getting the shaft in this labor dispute.
At the same time, anything that might keep the players in touch with their teams and pressure both sides to keep negotiating to try to start the 2011 season on schedule would be a great thing to support.
