Labor Victory - NFL Players Association!

Congratulations to the NFLPA! How inspiring to see the workers' (players) solidarity win out over the insatiable greed of the NFL owners and bosses. We win when we're united, our rulers win when we're divided.

Let's hope the NBPA will also be able to overcome the plantation mentality of their bosses.

I'm not going to cheer for the football players who are making entirely too much money, no matter what position, for playing a game. I know your point is about working together for the collective good but these people are a poor example of it.
This is why we watch more college football than any other in our house now. Although they are playing their hearts out to get into the NFL they still play the game better than the pros.
