A couple of weeks ago, Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to all players regarding the offer that the NFLPA* left on the table. It went over like a lead balloon. Coated in tungsten steel. Tied to a big-ass anchor.

Now, Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy and Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, both former NFL players, have penned a letter to all retired players.

What is next? Richardson hires a physic to make contact with deceased players? He pays visits to pee wee leagues around the nation to get them on board?

Maybe I missed the point of a VERY long article.... or maybe I am beginning to believe JR is half a nut job.

I did like reading about some of the bullet points they claim was in their proposal.

I didn't really see anything bad about the letter they sent.

Agree with them or not, their pitch at least made sense.

Richardson is a former player I'm sure he gives a damn. He certainly cares about the little people at the stadium. Even though he's a self made multi-millionaire I doubt he's as stone cold as he's painted out to be. Yeah he wants to make money but he's not looking to leave anybody out in the cold.

I'm not sure what physics has to do with this?

Never seen anyone complain about an owner for such an insignificant thing that this... I think some of you just dislike the big cat so much anything he does will peeve you.

This is a shrewd move. If they can get the retired players on their side they will have a large upper hand in the PR department at the very least. It would also be compelling testimony to have a former player on your side to get someone who is not an owner talking up the owners proposal.

Hard for NFLPA to say it is the worst deal in the history of sports if former players are talking about it being a really good deal. Undermines the NFLPA*'s credibility. From a strategy point of view I like it a lot.

The NFLPA disrespected and treated like poo the retired players rep just a week or two ago which didn't go over well.

The fans supporting the players need to understand they dont give a poo about former players or anyone that has built this game into what it is today. They just want to get theirs and fug everyone else.

I really hope the judge bends them over hard.

Your ignorant hate of JR is pathetic
