The lockout's over, sure … but how do the fans feel? That's the $10 billion question, based on estimated 2011 gross revenue that the owners and players will split in half. One away ar another, it all comes from the fans. Several NFL players proved to be aware of that when they made this NFLPA-sponsored video, thanking those fans for their support and patience through the NFL's longest-ever work stoppage.
In all, 13 players were featured giving direct messages to the fans. The lineup included Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth, Jacksonville Jaguars safety Rashean Mathis, and free agents Takeo Spikes and Tyson Clabo.
