In Response to Re: Greed of Retired Players Threatening to Destroy Pro Football?
Hi ALL! Hey, sorry I'm late to the party so I'll need some fill-in's right here... See, I live in the world of unfitting analogies & a despicable hypocrisy of debased ideals, malleable solely towards my right-wing values & pocketbook... Q : Any chance some fellow sl#meb#ll agenda driven outspoken conservative can bring back up to speed here? Also : If some of you guys can preach on a bit more regarding how the zillion dollar Players Union Association should've pushed for tougher injury-abating regulations in the league, Based off the fact about just how easy it was for the NFL Player workers to wrestle that 49% share from the Owners and League last offseason, That'd be great. Thanx in advance for the laughs.

WEll LAzz, not to be condescending but from the way you speak on this matter, and call everyone else with the opposite opinion,
I call you out and give you the open floor!
Share with us please your expertise in your managing of your past business or businesses where you had employees that sued you, had injuries both real and non.
Tell us your legal trouble with them, how your attorney's handled the problems and how you settled the matters at hand.
Please relate to us the cost to you just in legal fee's without compensations paid out and or structured settlements.
And also, did you employees have a union? Your employees contracts if union, were they 2 ,3 or 5 year voting conditions or just common place with compliant job descriptions, insurance vouture's with selection of carrier or standard with adjustable deducatables?
Did you or do you offer stock options, 401k, reimbursement investment options, or straight shared dividends on company profit margins for advanced sale profits?
Because you see, these are all things in small business that are magnified at the NFL level.
These players and yes even in the 1980's are and were payed very well.
Sorry Lazz but, with the way you people are thinking try this out?
If any of you played football in your local high school or college and got hurt, say a broken bone, I want you to go to the head of that school and tell them you are going to sue them because the injury you sustaned has taken on new magnification and is ruining yoru life.
After all they made money seloling tickets to these games and after all you deserve compensation, you helped make that school what it is today.
So whats next, suits for broken fingers, hang nails and diaper rash?
Once again the NFL is worth billions and the sleazeballs will use any tactic and attorney to milk money from the cash cow.
Good luck Lazz with your buisnesses and I hope you have a great attorney that keeps people like this from taking your profits away from you.
One thing though Lazz, if the NFLPA is such a great union rep of the players why are these issues never put forth with the affect of player strikes?
I will answer it for you, its because the players salaries are so large and profit sharing so large,(unheard of anywhere else) that if they ever did strike, every other football player would line up and take less than half of what the NFL players receive.
And that goes for the 1980's players as well.
Sorry that people with other opinions have caused you to call us all slime and the such, but if you have better options then you need to be an attorney working for the players union and you will have my vote.
your still my Idol on this program, even if Im just a low life sleezee guy!If you have a good answer to this problem for these guys, I would be the first in line to hear it
