Taking sides

Alright Nation, time to vent.

I just got word Seymour is getting a contract. I am VERY proud of our front office for getting this done. We all know I'm a staunch supporter of Mr Davis. Even if there is a lockout and this contract doesn't matter, I'm still impressed. Seymour is at a point in his career where franchising him could have crippled his security. Our organization has done well using its franchise tag. You may get it one year, but odds are, your patience and loyalty will pay off. Which lead me to my original train of thought.

I'd love to bang Kim Kardashian. Ok. Wrong thought. It's in here some where...

Aha! Maybe Mr. Davis should be heard through by both sides of the table at the CBA negotiations. Financially and morally, nobody takes care of his players like the managing general partner. Think about it. He's been at this football gig for a while now. He knew the late great player rep and hall of famer Gene Upshaw as well as anybody. I know most people view him as a quack these days. But this seems to be a perfect time for him to rise to the occassion. He wanted more than anything to be NFL Commissioner before being snaked by the other owners and Pete Rozelle.

It just seems to me the inmates are running the asylum these days in sports. At some point, even the players union has got to see that these NFL Players got it pretty good. And point it out to the "Hired Help". I belong to a union and have for almost 15 years. But were it to come to a strike, I'm not so sure how long I could go in this economy without crossing the picket line and just being thankful to get a paycheck, benefits for my family, and a pension. I for one can't wait to hear about the 1st time after the lockout, a player has to get medical treatment. Reality check time.
