Discussion Of The Day: Are The Owners Bluffing?

There's been a lot of talk about the owners and the league would completely shut down the NFL if the lockout were lifted. If your blood isn't curdled by that very thought, then let's talk about it.

Chris Mortensen rejects the idea, which isn't all that reassuring. But his point is very real: The owners risk gobs of money, a severe blow to public perception of them and the future of the league if they were to pull such a foolish stunt. That said, this lockout has featured plenty of moves that could be charitably described as foolish, so here we are.

Is there any chance this could happen? What do you think?
