OK guys, at the risk of jinxing the good vibes and perceived progress coming from the labor negotiations, we're going to run a little contest.

Predict the date and time the lockout will be over (rounded to the hour). Closest to wins a free copy of the Cheatsheet Compiler & Draft Buddy.

Specify your entry in the Eastern time zone like this...

Ex: July 15th, 7:00 PM ET

Rules

1. The person(s) closest to the correct time without going over wins.
2. Your guesstimate must be in by Noon Eastern tomorrow (Saturday, 7/9).
3. If you have multiple entries, your last entry will be used.
4. For the sake of this contest, the end of the lockout will be the date/time an announcement is made on NFL.com that an agreement has been reached between the owners and players.

:cheers:

Can we modify the last rule to whenever Goodell and Smith hold their press conference? I assume it will be joint, but if not...whomever holds the first press conference.

We're using NFL.com because there will be a timestamp on the story. Probably easier to track and less room for error than determining who said something to the media first.

Easiest way to win a contest like this is not to be too specific :lol:

I know the contest is :lock: now, but in typical "The Price Is Right" fashion, I'll take a minute after the latest guess on here :banana:

Zac, if you had read rule #1, this contest is like the Price is Right, if you go over, you lose. So no, he does not have until 7-23. If the settlement is announced on NFL.com before 7-23 at 10:17 am eastern then Giraldi02 is the winner. If it happens after that time and before 7-25 at 12:42 pm eastern then I win...

At this point, I would be very very happy if any of us win this devildamned contest. Titans&bucs is looking good and is probably the favorite.
