NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Some unhappy Tennessee Titans fans are warning NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that the owners' lockout will cost the league if it doesn't end soon. Goodell spent a little more than a half-hour with Titans fans in his latest conference call with season ticket holders around the league.
One man wanted to know why NFL owners won't open their books up to the players. Another asked how far apart owners and plaers really. And another warned the commissioner that upset fans will take their anger out on the NFL. He told Goodell to take the initiative and get a deal done "before the NFL loses all credibility."
Goodell defended the lockout, saying the NFL has "serious
economic issues" to resolve and that there is no "drop dead
date" for a resolution.
