I've been a MN Vikings Season Ticket Holder for over 22 years, so I've been watching this lock-out with eagle eyes.  This is what I know....according to Fox News.com an end to the NFL lock out could be near.  A meeting between those involved will come this week.  IF they can agree and a deal is ratified....players could hit the training camps on time.

I saw Christian Ponder practicing with some of his team mates on the tube, which I think is a good idea...don't know if it's legal, but glad that they're  getting use to each other on the turf.

They are suppose to meet on Thursday in Atlanta.  Obviously, they'll have to vote on the deal, but if all goes well, there might NOT be a delay to the 2011 season.  They are running out of time, the first schedule game is set for August 7, when Da Bears take on the Rams!
