[QUOTE]In Response to Re: The "non-union" union bullying prospects to boycott the draft : I just don't understand how a union can decertify, reform as a trade association, collaborate with none NFLPA members to gain negotiation leverage against the NFL, and sue for anti-trust when the union hasn't really decertified.

, we can ALL say what we will, but The "Union" (quote, end quote) bullying ("advising to join their non-existing group") these currently non-professional collegiate football players, IS in fact pretty d#mn funny (read: hypocritically amusing & fictionally absurd)... So o.k., maybe perhaps when ya weigh this against the fact that The Players "Non-Union" really IS in the owner's corner 110% regarding a set & rather stringent NFL Draft Rookie payscale, rather than a totally absurd open flea-market on Football players who've never actually proven to be "professionally competent" football players (*cough-the only minor difference here being, the vet players of their non-union want alot of that extra mulla thrown straight to THEM, and not simply disappeared towards ownership)...THEN, after you've taken this little tidbit into consideration, maybe "d#mn funny" gets thrown outta the window, as a vast understatement to it's hilarity...PatsEng
, I know you're a wise fella...You and I have had rather good talks, and I've always come away under the notion that intellectually you're rather well-versed, and I'm sure the feeling is mutual (recall: I said "intellectually well-versed", in no place did I state "NON-emotionally volatile psycho" on my own behalf)... Regardless, I know you're on the billionaire conglomerate-single business-efforts-swallowing-blackhole-emotionless-Oligarchy, rich-all-powerful-trust-fund-entitled-pr!ck side of squeezing the last billion from the sweat & toil & broken backs of others, while lying about their profits & turmoil...And YOU know that I'M on the sports-game-playing-for-a-career, millionaire whiney-free-give-away-entitled-sport's-icon-archetypal-hero-superstar-pr!ck side of ransoming the last million from the initial start-up efforts and benefactor-ship hitchiking off the backs of others, while lying about THEIR own poverty & hardship... But see, we can still be friends and agree to disagree here, right?
