My optimism for any sort of season died this morning.

I was thinking of the possibility of this earlier. On the off chance they actually managed to agree to something that'd allow a shortened season to start anytime in Jan/Feb, I wonder if they couldn't just play it ("The Classic") as the season opener. Not like Detroit's stadium is gonna be otherwise in any sort of demand that time of year. Likely a moot point obviously.

One other reason why it sucks is that I have enjoyed HBO's 24/7 documentary series that covered the lead up to the event in the past. That scraps plans for an upcoming one if that's the case.

I knew they'd announce it in the Friday news dump. Chicken shit.
