2010 NFL Season Kicks Off

The defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints defeated the Minnesota Vikings 14-9 to open up the 2010 NFL season. However, while 32 teams will be battling for a Super Bowl title this season, a more important battle is going on between NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith.

The two are on opposite sides of the table when it comes to the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, which is up in March 2011. Player health-care coverage, a possible 18-game schedule, and owners’ profits will be among the main issues that could all hold up the start of the 2011 NFL season.

Regardless, the NFL season should be just as entertaining off-the-field as it will be on-the-field.
