Owners. Can't stand unions.

Plus most of the owners have probably got where they are today from extremely hard work, big risks and dedication.

Most players would be flipping burgers if it weren't for they fact they run fast or are big.

I'm on the owners side. Have been from the get go. Then again, I am anti-union and have always been pro-business. Groups like Organizing for America and the NFLPA can take a hike.

Huddlers don't agree with America


They say this, until there is no football then you see people slowly backing away from the players side for holding out.

I voted neither, my opinion carries no weight concerning the matter. However, I think if they (nflp & owners) can't come to an agreement then put it in the hands of who can get it done and do it quickly because of the possible ramifications it brings and other people's jobs that are in jeopardy. Lastly, our football enjoyment.

I think he is saying that the owners are the ones that backed out of the expiring deal (3 years ago), not the players. The owners will be getting a better deal and the players will be getting a worse deal. How much worse is what is being negotiated.

I agree that this is all happening because the owners opted out of the current deal. But if the owners truly offered the NFLPA what it was reported they offered the NFLPA? Then shame on the players and D Smith.

I have yet to see an independent journalist come out with what really was offered on both sides. I've seen the owners' side and I've seen the players' side. What I haven't seen yet is the actual truth. Taking one side or the other as complete gospel is just being really biased towards one side or the other.

I mean, I could just as easily say that if players truly offered what they said they offered, then shame on the owners and Goodell right?

100% agree. But my anti-union beliefs influence my feelings and right now I am on the side of the owners. I have no sympathy for the players. Most players average a 3-5 year career in the NFL, make a sh*t ton of money, and if they are smart go on to a normal career. Owners have to look at the picture long term. From strictly a business standpoint, owners are the ones who take on the real risk.

That's why I waited until it was official, and everyone could see what was offered and how each side would view the other's offer, and their reaction to it.

I'm on neither side but it seems like the Owners offered a pretty reasonable deal and conceeded on a number of issues. Bottom line is there's a lot of greedy people on both sides.
