Joe Gibbs worried about labor situation in NFL

In the last two work stoppages in the NFL, Joe Gibbs emerged a champion.

He guided the Washington Redskins to Lombardi Trophies in 1982 and 1987, seasons truncated by labor problems that plagued the sport.

Now, the retired Hall of Famer is concerned the current black cloud hanging over the game could be detrimental.

“There's too much at stake,” the coach turned NASCAR owners said, according to the Associated Press. “They may miss a few preseason games, but I think they'll get this done because otherwise, I think it would hurt the sport.”

Gibbs was matter of fact when he said he doesn’t see a resolution coming any time soon even though players and owners will meet in a Minnesota court room April 6.

“I worry about it," Gibbs said. "I think it'll come down to the end."
