Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen has a message for NFL fans. Don't blame the players, blame the owners.

As a guest of Sports 620 KTAR's Doug and Wolf Thursday morning Allen vented some frustration on the current predicament he and other players find themselves in currently.

"I'll be curious to see what happens with free agency," he told the hosts. "First of all we have to get to this stuff. So if the owners can kind of quit locking us out every time we win to get football back. It seems there's another road block put in front of us to say ‘we don't want to play'.

"To all of our fans. Us as players, we're trying to play football. I know people are getting pissed off saying it's just millionaires and billionaires arguing over money, but there are some other issues to be discussed. The bottom line is players want to play football."

When they'll get their chance to play football is anyone's guess. What is becoming abundantly clear though is that it's not just the fans who are frustrated with the entire situation, the players are too.
