Leave it to the biggest show boaters in professional sports to steal the sports headlines even in their off-season.
The NFL lockout is the most disheartening sports story of the last decade — and possibly the previous one as well. Worse than “(insert star college athlete) receives (insert inappropriate side benefit)” scandals. Worse than officials accepting bribes to tip games. Worse than steroids.
Why? Because it’s never been so blatantly obvious that we, the fans, have been completely forgotten.
