The players are losing it...

With the comments from Petersen and now this it's amazing to me how detached these guys are from reality. He talks about getting fined for doing drugs or not being an "upstanding citizen"...uh, who here works somewhere that if you fail a drug test you get fired? How many of you work somewhere that if you get a DUI you get fired or at the very least punished? These guys have no clue what real life is like bc most of them have always had people bending over backwards for them...from high school to the pros. I love what goodell has done and I love his message to players.

Goodell's full of it. He's a liar. You're a blatant liar. 'It's our league, it's we, we love the players, we want the league,' but what have you done for the players? What have you done, in all honesty, to improve the game, besides fine guys, besides take money away from guys, besides change a game that you've never played? ... He's done nothing to improve the game.
Put the cry baby doing a construction job or some other type of manual labor. I'll bet he'd change his tune REAL QUICK!!

I don't get this comments on 'taking the money' wtf? but I do agree on these dumba*ss rule changes it's getting ridiculous .
The rule changes were to promote player safety, aka what the players bitch and moan about.
Then they change their tune saying they would rather have players injured for bad hits because they dont want to be fined.

And the argument I've heard about record books...there couldn't possibly be a lamer excuse. They already did it in the 70s when they extended it to 16 games. There's no legitimate reason why they can't do it again 40 years later. It'll just be the beginning of another new era. It's time for one anyway. People already say "well it was a different league back then. There's more focus on passing now, the elite RB is dying, blahblahblah". Time to mark another crossroads in the history of the NFL. Let the new era of the NFL begin.

As a fan, preseason game tickets cost the same as the normal game tickets so I'd rather see a game that counts.

only a matter of time until they start begging for whatever deal the owners offer. when do paychecks usually start rolling in for the players?
