What I don't think most people are aware of, is that this issue is FAR more political than economic at this point.

I would not have capitalized FAR

The best thing the union could do right now would be to decertify Smith(a.k.a Fire his ass). He is not going to stop, and basically has locked out the owners in negotiations. Just cause you act bad and talk big, does not mean those guy on the other side of the bar are not going to kick your ass.

Smith isn't interested in a resolution to this. He's doing his part at dismantling the NFL as an Organization. Not enough votes for his side of the political spectrum.

You sir have nailed it on the head. Smith doesn't want to negotiate, he wants to bring the NFL down and dictate how things will be.

Players better WTFU real quick and fire this assclown and get someone to negotiate to the table.

I agree. If they think they are being treated unfairly they can try their luck with their skill set in another league or another profession.

Wrangling the NFL for more money, in the middle of a recession/depression, when they are already some of the highest paid professionals of any business in this country is ludicrous. JR might not have communicated that fact eloquently, but he's right.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
