    2 quotes that popped out to me.

    So is this a bargaining threat/shot across the bows to the owners or Gene Upshaws 'brilliant' idea of what he would really do......oppose any salary cap ever again. Sounds like recipe for a LOCKOUT to me.


    Jeez; and I was thinking these guys were overpaid already. Everybody gets a free $300,000 ontop of their minimum $440K or so minimum salary?

    Pretty clear from the get go that this was what Gene wanted all along.

    I love the part where they spin the potential for RFA's to get great deals anyway, citing that several have (LOL) and pointing to a long ago deal that can't be replicated (Martin) and a guy who couldn't wait to get his old job back (Coles) to get away from a team anther guy (Arrington) just paid to get the hell away from.

    Whatever....

    We need a spin smilie.

    Blah, Blah, Blah....just typical union posturing, there is a reliance on hysteria in times like these. What I find interesting in all of this is the quietness of the players and their reliance on the union to speak for them, with the exception of Matt Birk I have not seen or read anything.
