    Now that a great answer, you can't see the books because your to dumb to understand them. Not insulting or anything. :rolleyes:

    Owners tell players they 'couldn't understand' financial information - Extra Points -

    Money is at the root of the impasse between the NFL and the players, with the players asking the league to open its books to justify the extra money it is asking for. To this point, the owners have refused.

    And what reason do they give players for not handing over financial information?

    "They said, 'even if we provided that information, you wouldn't be able to understand it,'" Sean Morey said today at the NFL Players' Association board of player representatives meetings in Marco Island, Fla.

    Morey is one of dozens of players here this week to discuss and learn about the state of the union - or trade association, as the case may be - and pass the information on to teammates.

    So Panther's apparently owner Jerry Richardson's condescending comments to Peyton Manning and Drew Brees are the rule rather than the exception.

    Here's my question: if the owners think the players wouldn't understand it, wouldn't that mean they should be less reluctant to show them those figures?
