I personally love Bill Simmons columns. I know some one here hate every writer, but I think he is good.

Neat perspective on the NFL.

Retarded people, don't bother it is fairly long.

Great article. Everyone on this board that has had a strong opinion on the CBA negotiations should read it.

Unfortunately, it's likely they won't and they'll continue on with their whole 'owners deserve their money because this is America' garbage.

Side note: I miss your Irving body-slam Wake RB gif :(

Wait, I meant to say that the article is just liberal news media, and the owners deserve everything they have because they took all the 'risk.' Whoops my bad. :rolleyes:

Editorialist crap. If you want something closer to actual journalism, this is what you need:

^^ Simmons is not a journalist, or attempting to be.

He is just making a huge, effective metaphor.

If the metaphor were so true, why is GB not making crazy money as is implied?

Waste of time.

Richardson voiced at the beginning of last season how he was focused more on trying to help keep the jobs of his employees that make the show run, not just the players.

The players are only looking out for themselves. The owners, while predominantly concerned with themselves in some cases, are also responsible for many of their employees. Jerry Jones and Bob Kraft will probably cut jobs without a care, but JR take the human factor into consideration.

Perhaps if the writer could focus less on dollar amounts and more on investigating and reporting, perhaps there would be been more substance to the article. Otherwise he's just like every other shmuck that thinks because football players get paid millions that the players should have to work in a coal mine and a chemical plant during the offseason to justify the pay. Only in this case, it's criticizing business owners for trying to make their business model grow but doing so in a manner to raise ire against the owners with a hypothetical business model. Had Simmons wrote an article with a well run organization as well to go with it, I might be more inclined to take the article more seriously. But a one-sided grenade toss is nothing new here.

I can't wait until all this is over with. The CBA has really exposed many people's lack of business sense to go along with their Chicken Little syndrome.

Brings up some good points and ignores others.
