The NFL Lockout Explained With Stick Figures

Yesterday I had a quote from NFL Negotiator Jeff Pash in which he said that, in the end, all the players wanted to talk about was money. He also said that the final offer wasn't "put out there as take it or leave it." That's pretty much the story told by Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy, who said it only "was the basis for further discussions."

That's not what former union boss DeMaurice Smith heard. From SB Nation's exclusive interview:

"Jeff [Pash] only has a casual relationship with the truth. Jeff knows that the NFL's deal was an all-or-nothing deal."

In the meantime, Vikings P Chris Kluwe has it all explained in convenient cartoon form.
