Well if her husband made multi millions it would be different. You aren't going to find any working class who have any common sense feeling sorry for the rich.


Good thing I never said they should huh?

BTW: ever figure out what a "real job" is?

FYI Cops and Firemen have huge unions that look out for them just like the players.


Not always.



Honestly, you sound like you're just talking out of your ass.

I am on the owner's side, but I find it humorous to compare the salaries of police officers, firemen, & coal miners to NFL players.

The only way you could compare what they do and say they deserve NFL money would be if 74,000 people bought a ticket to watch the police raid a crack house or "fans" bought a $350 club level ticket to go get a BBQ sandwich, a frosty brew, and a jumbo pretzel to go watch firemen put out a burning building and save a baby. Or maybe you would prefer to purchase a jersey of Juan the coal miner because he works really hard in dangerous conditions.

If our salaries were based on whether we impacted the world or how dangerour our job was, we would all be high flying stuntmen helping out the tsunami victims in Japan... GETTING PAID!

I don't hate the players but plenty of stay at home wives/moms have shed tears over the job situations of their husbands the last few years and a very small percentage of those have had the opportunity to save like these players have.

Its all about greed, people just WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT. That's what is wrong with America today, a few people got greedy and didn't care about anyone else but themselves.


You sound very bitter.

If you want something, go get it. That's what makes this country great.

I'm pretty sure what makes this country great is exceptional fast food and exceptional dance moves.

If they wanted a safe career they should have stayed in college and got a degree. They're getting paid millions to do what every other man in America would love to do for a living. Stop whining or gtfo out of the league.

Speaking for myself here, I’m a disabled vet and a combat veteran. I spent my life doing what many people would never do. I was part of the 82nd Airborne and I spent my days training and jumping from high altitudes for little pay and little reward. The Army treated me very well throughout my career until I was received a severe spinal injury. I’m now no longer in the Army, I deal with the VA Hospital and it’s the worst thing you can imagine.

I’m 38 and I have arthritis in my hips, knees, ruptured disc’s in my spine degenerative disc disorder, Depression, PTSD, I have no retirement since I was medically discharged from the Army do to my injuries.

So for me to understand what she is talking about, I can. I joined the Army at 17. It’s what I wanted to do with my life. I was an outstanding paratrooper until my injuries prevented me from doing my job. Then the Army and my command treated me like a piece of poo.

There are days I can’t walk and dress myself; I miss work a lot due to severe pain in my lower and upper spine. If I need to see a Dr. at the VA hospital, it could take months to do so or I have to go to the VA emergency room just to have the Dr.'s and staff there yell and complain to me why I did not go to my clinic.

So what I’m getting at is. I went in thinking that a country that I loved so much to put my life on the line every single day would take care of me if anything happened. I’m here to tell that has not happened and I’m not the only disabled vet going through this. Some are better off since they have full benefits from retirement. But troopers like me are screwed.

It’s the same thing with the NFL. No one forced me to join the Army and no one forced them to play football. But as I expected the Army to take care of me the way I took care of it, the players expected the NFL to take care of them.

Yes the players can make a lot of money throughout their careers. But then again the average NFL players career last no more than 3 1/2 years. Some play for the league minimum and then that gets the hell taxed out it. Very few players are out there making $10Mil a year. Some are terrible about investing the money for the future (Up brining is at fault here).

I read a post here that it does not cost a lot of money to insure yourself and family. I’m here to tell you it does. If I did not have the job that I a have, It would cost me over $1500 -$2000 a month to ensure myself and my family of 3 due to the physical condition I’m in. I’m a higher risk than the average 38 year man.

Oh and for the hater up there that shows he lack of respect for these players, football players is the generation’s gladiators. They throw all of themselves into a sport that we all here love to watch each and every Sunday. So if you consider yourself a football fan and talk about the players they way you do, you take your ass out there and play a game where a 300lb DT can out run you pick you up and slam you to the ground so hard he break your spine. Play a game with players out there like Harrison from the Steelers who makes it clear that he is not concerned if he injures another player or not. He makes it clear he is trying to hurt the offensive players. To me the men earn every single damn dollar they are paid. MLB players make more money than the NFL players. And there is a third of the risk for fatal injury with them short of a 100mph fastball hitting the in the face.

You remind me of the protestors around Ft. Bragg that protests the soldiers returning home. Or the assholes that protests a fallen soldiers funeral because they don’t believe in why we are fighting this war. Your anger and frustration is directed to the wrong people just like theirs. And you can say what you want about this, but its not you that is out there in a combat zone weather on a football field or in the dessert. It’s not you that has a wife helping you get dressed in the morning or helping you off the toilet because you can’t stand. It’s not you who sees his kids crying because they are worried if their father is going to be ok. It’s not you who has to worry about dying and leaving your family in your 30’s or 40’s. Just like all of our Disabled veterans in the country right now needing the help from the American people the NFL players need the help as well. The greedy ass owners are the ones at fault for this CBA not being passed.

The one thing the Players asked for is full discloser of all 32 teams’ finances. And they have been repeatedly told no. If you think that the owners are not hiding a ton of money then the people supporting the owners in this are just crazy. That’s the main point in the letter that this players wife wrote. The owner only care about the business side of the game and not the people (Players, and fans) that make the game happen.
