1987: NFL players start a 24-day strike that would wipe out one week of the league's season. The games scheduled for the third week of the season would be canceled, but the games for weeks four through six were played with replacement players and some veterans who crossed the picket line. Having failed to achieve their demands, and given the willingness of the players to cross the picket lines and networks to broadcast the replacement games, the union voted to end the strike on Oct. 15, 1987, without a new collective bargaining agreement in place.
