But I won't hold any grudges if there is a work stoppage, whether it's a strike initiated by the players or a lockout initiated by the owners; and hey, if they do go to 18 games that may be the thing that makes me spring for NFL Sunday Ticket!

And if there is such an interruption, it only serves to make 18 games that much more inevitable, as the league will be anxious to do something to soothe the feelings of the fans who do feel anger or cynicism over the stoppage (note how the NHL initiated its shootout rules in the wake of its own labor dispute).
