NFLPA tells agents to plan for work stoppage

Recommended Posts



This was a factor in the NFL wanting David Tepper as an owner. He's supposed to be a shrewd negotiator. 

I'd be stunned if the NFL and NFLPA can avoid a work stoppage in 2021.

Part of the negotiation process. Striking is pretty much the only leverage the NFLPA holds.

true.  and a lockout likely hurts the players more than the owners.

Tepper is the guy who was quite happy to tell the South Carolina legislature "No problem, we'll build it in Charlotte".  If he's involved the the NFLPA negotiations, he'd probably be happy to tell them "No problem, we'll bring in replacement players".  He seems like a super no-nonsense kinda guy.

I wonder when he will bring out the Panther special: Pie charts

Few fans, if any, will give replacement players much validity. I am old enough to remember the scabs, and it wasn't really pretty.

tbqh I'm almost at the point where I say let the league fold

I mean, it was fun to have the Panthers in my life for the 25 years they would have been in it then and I will always have the memories.

But, I tire of the arguments of both sides in this fight.
 

This happens in basically every professional sport that is unionized. This also happens in businesses that have unions.

It's a very large mutual loss for both parties if there is no NFL for a year. Not much to see here, it happens basically every CBA cycle. It is what it is.

I can assure you I will not watch a bunch of JAG's play an entire NFL season. They can count me out on that poo.

I realize as much. I think it was my way of saying that it could fold and I wouldn't care, and that I think I'm slowly outgrowing football.

Also, I think it'll be an obsolete sport in my lifetime anyway. I think the money goes into another form of the  industry, perhaps virtual, which will eventually be obsolete as well.

I think society as a whole is realizing we have bigger problems, and better/more constructive outlets of escapism/entertainment available to us. More people are seeing professional sports for the capitalist giants they have become, and are turning away from them.

At least I hope so, on all of the above.

In the end, it's just the fans that get hurt. The players will get more money, the owners will still get gobs of revenue by jacking up ticket prices and other revenue streams. We get more expensive tickets, more expensive memorabilia and possibly an even less interesting version of the game.

 

Now if the fans would strike...

Would be a lost year for Cam, which scares me seeing he only has maybe a few years left anyway...
