JR condescending to Peyton Manning during CBA meeting?

Yeah lets keep comparing the NFL to a car dealership

That's my whole point...you can't compare the NFL to a regular business. There are millions of union workers out there making $60,000 a year or less who risk bodily harm and even death, in some cases, and they have to do it on a daily basis and well in to their 60's. So let's not pretend that these poor football players have it so rough.

Most of these guys couldn't have even gotten in to the colleges they played for, if not for football, yet they got a free college education and are making millions playing a damn game. They want more health care? Get a freakin job after football, and if they wasted all of their millions on cars, houses and hookers, or failed to get their free college degree, then that's their own damn fault.

Neat...still no reason for Richardson's behavior.

The thing is, as good as Manning is, football was here before him, and it will go on without him at some point. Plus, he can be a smartass himself, so who cares if JR hurt his feelings?

I can understand where the owners are coming from. What other business makes about 90% of their employees multi millionaires? Even practice squad players in the NFL make 5 figures and get free health care, and they're complaining? The only thing I have any sympathy for, is the 18 game season. I do believe the owners should bend on that one.

Maybe JR is mad as hell at the Mannings for the Luck thing, that's personal.

If the team was winning he wouldn't be complaining about money. None of his players jerseys are hot nationally anymore, that is a you problem.

An abrasive business man looking out for the interest of his business and not jock-coddling an all-star like the rest of the league?? for shame!

Why did you say you can't compare the NFL to a regular business and then compared the NFL to union workers?

There are right ways and wrong ways of protecting your business.

I'm not sure he is doing it the right way.

We will see.

JR can always get away with it by claiming Alzheimers.

Good grief. If you didn't get my point, then I can't help you.

Your point was pretty dumb and has nothing to do with the argument at hand.

My retarded dog got your point.

And I never compared the NFL to a car dealership either, smartass. And BTW, were you there when JR was speaking?

Agreed. There are countless threads where owner vs players is being debated already. I take the side of the owners but that has nothing to do with thinking Richardson's behavior is improper.
