"Why should there even be a draft?" said player agent Brian Ayrault. "Players should be able to choose who they work for. Markets should determine the value of all contracts. Competitive balance is a fallacy."



Did he really just say what I think he said?
Imbecile. Is this really what the players want?
To destroy the game to make sure they get some extra cash in their wallets?

Actually very good explanation of the worst case scenario,

My hope is that the NFLPA is just using all this as leverage, because if a new CBA isn't reached I think it will ultimately destroy the league.

what's that? college players being allowed to choose where they'll spend the next four to seven years of their lives and whom will employ them if they want to have a lucrative career? having a choice? this is ridiculous!

meanwhile gotta break up planned parenthood something something something

No one is forcing them to enter the draft. If they want to be employed by the league, they should follow the rules of the league.

no one is forcing a worker to become a steel worker. if they want to work in the steel industry, they should follow the rules of the union.

i mean dismissing it by saying that no one made them do this is the exact same poo mining companies used to say to miners who just wanted thicker cuts of wood to protect them inside the shafts.

"hell you think it's too dangerous we can always go kidnap another boatload of celestials they'll love to work here!"
