First of all, it's a lockout, not a strike. The NFL Players Association has said repeatedly that they will play under the existing contract until a new agreement is reached. Amazingly, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says that this proves there needs to be a lockout.
I'm a writer currently living in Ottawa, writing for a Chicago Bears web page. I'd like to give Chicago readers some insight into Canadians' thoughts regarding Toronto getting an NFL franchise. I believe that the NFL's goal is to move the Buffalo Bills to Toronto.

Good for Nike. I mean its new dead dad ad, on Tiger Woods. It manages to strike a different note in the moralistic hysteria-fest around his return to this weekend's Masters. Not just what it says but its tone. "I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. ... Did you learn anything?" says the voiceover from beyond the grave, as Tiger looks directly into the camera. Check the diction: More prone ... inquisitive. "More" is relative, "prone" is detached, "inquisitive" weighs things, instead of denouncing them. Promote discussion ... learn. As if the case isn't transparent, there are things here to unearth and explore. What is the note struck? In a word: Buddhist, Tiger's own religious background and his mom's.
