NFL owners to announce counter-offer about half of what the NFLPA wants in 3... 2... 1...

Pet peeve

Stop saying things like "all fully guaranteed money paid" as if that means something different than "all guaranteed money paid."

If your contract has some other type of "guaranteed money" in it, like "half-assed guaranteed money," it means you don't understand what "guaranteed" means.

Turns out the contract money was only mostly guaranteed.

I'm looking forward to some good NFL fan fiction.

I used to love (American) football, but it's so destructive and racist, I don't think it's worth saving.  I don't even follow my Alma Mater anymore.

Owners will counter with something that appeals to the bottom 51% of the players. Just like they did with the new agreement.

This offer is kind of already doing that. By spreading out the losses from 2022 onward, a massive chunk of the league will already be out or otherwise retired.

I am altering the guarantee.  Pray I don't alter it any further.

As long as they aren't allowed to trade uniforms after the game. That would be anarchy!

And the reality is starting to set in. The NFL won't be happening.

Trump would probably try to issue an executive order forcing the NFL to play a season, hoax virus be damned.

How have they waited until weeks before the pre-season starts to begin talking about this?

If you don't plan for contingencies, you won't have to deal with any.

It's like the Seinfeld car rental reservation scene.

There's a big difference between mostly guaranteed and all guaranteed. Mostly guaranteed is slightly not guaranteed.

So "We won't get raises, but you have to pay us even if we don't play and you don't make any money". It kind of seems like bargaining for a car by starting at "I'll pay $1".

Did the NFL get any PPP money? Did any of the teams/owners?
 
2020-07-11 4:54:57 PM  
yeah that's not gonna fly with the NFL Owners but u have to wonder if this is some sort of strategy to force the NFL to not play this fall.

I'm very glad that I didn't buy any Bucs tickets.  The Brady markup is stupid here.

so your pet peeve is being ignorant of how the contract works?

No, there is a difference between the contract money being fully guaranteed and only partially guaranteed (or none of it guaranteed).

But there is no difference between "guaranteed money" and "fully guaranteed money."

Cam Newton going to the Patriots not enough for you?

Damnit. Can't we all just get along?

NFL teams aren't small businesses like the LA Lakers.

How dare the owners have any pain what so ever from this.  Why does no one ever consider the portfolios of the poor oppressed multi-billionares.
