    NFL owners are sooooooooooo happy with their labor agreement!

    If the NFL owners blow up this labor agreement and kill their golden goose, they are the biggest fuck ups in the history of sports.
  3. Gene Upshaw talking tough. That's hilarious.

    b-b-b-b-but football's so much better than baseball! there's nothing wrong with the salary cap! It makes everyone happy!!!!

    I hope they fucking strike so the Kool-Aid drinkers shut the fuck up.

    edit: o/u on when oops stumbles in here, carrying piss and shit behind him? I say 5.5. :)
  5. Well, you did just leave him a gift ... and leaving him a gift is like asking my four-year-old not to touch the present I just gave her ...

    Yeah but it's fun to watch so-called adults who think they're superior to everyone else actually act like four-year-olds. :)

    Shit, that's another post. Stop replying!

    That might go well beyond just sports, sir.

    I think it's nice that the league let its puppet make threats.

    Now Genie, tell the players to collectively bend over so billionaires can pad their wallets.
  9. ... while ignoring the old fogies ...

    Yeah, but the fogies all had jobs on the side. So forget about the role the fogies had in building and growing the league. It's their fault if they didn't save money and have benefits. That's not the NFLPA's responsibility.

    So true. The NFL owners have a system in place that is extremely advantageous to them. Horrible idea to blow it up.

    The best thing about the NFL's set-up is the relatively even financial playing field it creates. It creates a belief that every team has a real shot to compete, a perception that is missing with some other sports, and guarantees a healthy profit for the owners.

    Of course, now the greedy bastards want to screw it up because the union hasn't shown the ability to stand up to them. It's not that the current deal doesn't work for them. They simply think they can fuck the players over and get one that favors them even more.

    If that happens and the union doesn't strike, Upshaw needs to be removed immediately -- something that should have been done long ago anyway.

    You are dumb as a box of hammers and as unfunny as a sack of dead babies when it comes to this subject.

    NFL is way overdue for a little labor action.

    The system is as good as sports can be.

    The numbers may need tweaking... or not.
