You watch, the NFL and the NFLPA will end up paying more now. Which is fine with me anyway. http://www.boston.com/sports/football/articles/2007/06/27/nfl_retirees_take_dispute_to_congress/ "Many of the players who now complain about their pension did not view pension benefits as a priority when they were playing, and did not agree to make sacrifices in bargaining to improve either their pensions or the pensions of those who came before them," said Douglas Ell, the lawyer for NFL's retirement plan. Players made so little they worked loading trucks and stuff in the off season. Jerk!
