The NFLPA is for the players. Why would they come out and say what they did? D Smith is for the players. End of discussion. 

The NFLPA is one of the worst players Association’s of all professional sports.  it is not surprising the owners have the NFLPA on a leash. so please stop talking about how they’re for players. they are not for players well-being and they always get screwed in negotiations.   They will Forever be fuged over by the owners they’re not willing to flex a single muscle and will take whatever the owners give them

What has Reid contributed to the Panther success since he came.  We loss (7) straight games.  I personally, as a  CP fan, am not interested in his personal issues.  I want to see production from this team on the field.

yes, better safety play is exactly what caused the 7 game skid.  we're not interested in your personal issues either.

The NFLPA is weak for 1 reason.  The sport.

Careers are short, the number of players is HUGE, and rarely are the majority of players willing to sit (and not earn) for any real length of time.

The owners have more leverage, and the PA knows it.

Y'all have argued for 17 pages over an issue where there is no where near my enough information available to form any sort of legit conclusion. Anyone coming to a conclusion about this issue right now already had their mind made up due to emotional reasons and no amount of evidence will convince them otherwise, but y'all keep arguing in circles.

Well then they should adjust and flex their muscle accordingly within that context. I was around when the players went on strike. The so-called scabs playing football wasn't good. It was akin to "fake football." 

What do they make like at least $400,000 per year? Prepare, make plans, be conservative, and sit.the fug out if you have to. The owners and networks don't want that. It's their worst nightmare. Vince McMahon would be smiling though, as would his BFF.

You are talking about a bunch of 21-24 year old men, who have had very little real life financial education (for the most part).  Take out taxes (they get taxed at a very high rate), agents, fines, all the hangers on, etc...and they don't keep nearly as much as it seems.  Not to mention, they don't get paid like us.  They get 16 checks per year....and you think teachers bitch about being on a 10 month pay schedule?

At the end of the day, the fringe guys, the last 5-8 players on rosters just can't cross their arms and sit on the sideline taunting the owners.  They may get 1 year, maybe 2, and they have to do number 1....look out for yourself and your family.

The big boys, on their 2nd and 3rd contracts have learned about money, have likely kept their noses clean to have made it this far, have real savings in the bank...those guys can afford to sit...they have some leverage.  Problem is?  There are a lot more that aren't able, nor willing to risk those paychecks.

I'm not about to tell players what to do with their personal lives or their financial freedoms.  They are adults at the end of the day.

Football will likely always have a "weak" union, just the way it is.
