ElwoodCuse: Ed Willy: For all the complaints people had about the NFL Players Union during the strike, they are the only ones working to help their players.

Sports owners are a universally terrible group of people but the general public always sides with them in labor disputes because they are jealous of pro athletes.


Well put..and true

Heck, the general public sides with GOP over teachers...even though teachers make less money than they do...all because of jealousy of unions.

NFL is basically the worst form of corporate cronyism. They are a defacto monopoly, have an unpaid internship program (NCAA), get massive tax payer subsidies by threatening to move and could give two shiats about the long term health and safety of their players.
