Around the Dawg Pound: Wednesday Afternoon Links


Remember last weekend when we were all celebrating the potential end of the NFL lockout? How a deal could be in place by the end of this week? Well, there’s a line in Pulp Fiction that a character by the name of the Wolf says, taking place in the scene where everyone is able to clean all the blood out of the interior of a car, but it’s not appropriate by any means to put here. If you’ve seen the movie, though, you know what I’m talking about.

The NFL Players Association is expected to vote today on the proposed new deal, but players – specifically NFLPA president Kevin Mawae – are warning fans not to assume that the lockout will be over by the weekend. They want to get back to work, sure, but only if it’s a fair deal for the players.

The lockout is getting closer to finally reaching its end, but these last few days of talks are just agonizing.

Here are more Browns links for you on this Wednesday afternoon:
