Headlines: “NFL Owners approve new CBA… NFLPA mulling options, won’t vote on owner approved new CBA.”
Let me get this straight… a $10 billion juggernaut business and you are whining over a few percentage points. Regardless of a few scandals here and there, college players play for their tuition, room and board, books and their meal plan. With the amount of money that the NCAA brings in on football alone, college players play for free essentially.
With rules that don’t allow players the right to a job while they are at college, players don’t have the means to take out their girlfriend or grab pizza with the guys. I’m not saying we should start paying college players because that is a can of worms that should never be opened… what i’m saying is that these NFL players and owners need to get over their own egos and bring back America’s most popular sport.
College players play for the pride of their schools and screaming college buddies and now it seems that all these NFL players play for are the Mr. Benjamins lining their wallets. NFL stadiums needs to be filled with fans that work overtime in order to get their season tickets and in the midst of this economic meltdown, Americans need something to cheer for.
If you won’t do any favors for eachother, then do a favor for us… the fans… the people that cheer you on and pay your bills! Get off your high horses, sign the CBA and get back out there. If not, you will lose our trust and you will destroy the new American Pastime – NFL Football.
