NO REPLACEMENTS SEQUEL FOR GOODELL


NEW ORLEANS -- One day after an NFL official said that the league has the right to use replacement players during the lockout, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell made a strong statement that isn't the direction the league is heading.

"We have not had any discussions or consideration of using replacement players," Goodell said today as the NFL wrapped up its annual league meetings. "It's not in our plans."

So, apparently there won't be any need for a sequel of "The Replacements."

The NFL used replacement players during the 1987 NFL strike. They were referred to as "scabs" by striking players, and the nickname stuck.
