Why can't the NFL have a lockout every year?




With the NFL lockout now over, and the mad dash of free agency underway, fans everywhere can rest. There will be a full NFL season. Maybe it's the lockout or the huge list of potential free agents this year, but this year feels different. I really wish the NFL would lockout every year.

OK, maybe wishing for a lockout every year is outrageous, but two days into the offseason and I'm amazed. I can't turn off espn. It seems like every 5 minutes on twitter there is a new free agent signing. I can't remember any other year like this, and that's a shame. While most fans, owners, and players would be against it, I would love to see free agency start later. Starting free agency later will give us this crazy sprint to sign the top players. Most fans will probably disagree, but personally, this is the most exciting and dramatic offseason I know of
