You are arguing that Jay Feely is lying in the interview provided above?
Your blind defense of Jerry has reached absurdity
I'm arguing that I have no idea what was said before this happened or if Peyton Manning, who is known to be a smartass himself from time to time, initiated it with his own comments or not. I expect Jay Feely to spin everything to make the players look better than the owners, because that's what this is all about, in case you're not bright enough to figure that out on your own.
And I could say the exact same thing about your obviously biased opinion of JR. You're willingness to put all the blame on JR is just as absurd.
And FTR, I have not weighed in on any of these other CBA threads because I have absolutely no control over what happens during these negotiations anyway.
