    Who’s forcing you to watch and listen to their opinions? How about you just focus on the game. Last time I checked, there are no politics being talked about, by the players, when the players are on the field and the game is going.

    Instead, there are plenty of players, including Kaep, who are spending millions of dollars on social issues. You probably didn’t know because Fox News didn’t report it.

    No, let’s be specific here. There are certain type of people who don’t give a damn about certain issues and we all know who they are.

    What are you talking about? Who said anything about rights? If you are going to reply to my comments, please stay on topic.

    Dumbass, it is more than appropriate for him to comment. Does that synonym suit your little sensibilities now?

    This is true...if it goes to arbitration...the union will likely win this one...my issue is they have bigger issues to fight for. The union is cherry picking a battle here...the equilvilant of being penny wise and dollar stupid imo.

    The commish powers will be front and center in the new CBA in a few years regardless of the outcome of this battle.

    Just like America...I got mine, you go get yours...that's actually okay imo assuming the opportunity to "go get yours" exists.

    The point of that is...the players continually vote in union leadership that may have the best interest of the game at heart but not the expertise in negotiations to accomplish it.

    Players that make the really big money...they're not going to trust their contract situation with a Gene Upshaw because he played the game...they get experienced negotiators to get the job done.

    Yep, just like in most things the middle class got squeezed out so the young players are trapped in long term contracts and only the great ones get that 2nd big money contract

    This is such a freaking joke. It kind of demonstrates out how of touch these guys are with reality. Much like actors and musicians, I don't give a rat's ass who you endorse for political office. I am intelligent enough to make my own decisions.

    I don't care about an offensive tackle's social justice agenda, as faux as it probably is. Shut it and play
