    Should it be 10 years, or 7 years like the players want. What do you think cowboys fans?

    One of the hanging issues is apparently the lack of an opt out clause in the agreement.

    The NFL announced last night there would be no opt out. Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports some players want an opt out after seven years.

    If either side opted out, they would have to accept a penalty to do so.

    We’re a little confused why this is a last minute issue. We have to think DeMaurice Smith knew these were the terms when he got off the phone with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Thursday evening.

    You'd think that would've been a major talking point during discussions, no?

    How is this issue just coming to light now? bull****

    They are saying its a major issue now, the players want an opt out clause, and NFL says no.

    OK. Then put an opt out clause for both sides in it. that is fair, right?
