Marker Bills owner faults money disparity [5:01 AM]
Washington Times reports: 'Wilson appreciates that viewpoint and would make some allowances, but he added, "If there's not a compromise, I guarantee you there will not be an extension of the CBA.

If that scenario isn't scary enough, Wilson warned the NFL could wind up with its first strike since 1987.'
