Ken Meringolo's Lockout Diary
The Redskins have had a down decade, and don't appear to be in contention for a Super Bowl anytime soon. But with the rest of the league potentially set to fight Post-Lockout Sloppiness, the Redskins could find themselves on a level playing field.
The NFL Lockout rages on, but football fans can still hang their hopes and dreams on the Draft. For Redskins fans, this year's draft will offer a great chance to see which direction Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan are taking the franchise.
As the Lockout wears on, it is not lost on this writer that for the first time since baseball returned from their disastrous strike in 1994, they have a legitimate chance to grow their sport.
The NFL will be back and we will be watching and rooting again soon enough. But the longer this thing goes, the bigger the risk that when it does come back, the NFL will not find the same class of suckers it left behind in a cloud of dust on March 11th.
