Poll:
Whom do you side with?

President Obama has a message to NFL owners and  the player’s union, figure it out yourself.

“For an industry that's making 9 billion dollars a year in revenue, they can figure out how to divide it up in a sensible way, and be true to their fans who are the ones who obviously allow for all the money that they're making so my expectation and hope is that they will resolve it without me intervening because it turns out I've got a lot of other stuff to do,” Obama said Thursday from Washington.

The NFL hasn’t had a work stoppage since 1987, but now has roughly eight hours (midnight eastern time) to come to an agreement.
