This Brady the union guy thing is starting to really become irritating. Unions of any type have completely outlived their purpose. Brady states, "we want the money going to the players." Who is he to say that? He is an employee of the New England Patriots, nothing more. The owners should be able to spend their money how ever they would like. They put up the coin to buy the team and have this right. If they want to be cheap, let them. Their product will suffer, and they will see the results in their team's popularity and revenue. Why is there a union to begin with? Collusion laws do not allow competing entities to get together and take advantage of anyone. For example, the owners can't get together and say "let's agree to not offer the players any more than xxxx so we can increase our profits." All of the competing teams should be allowed to offer their players as little or as much as they want to. Players will choose to go to the teams offering the best packages, which will force the others teams to offer more. Look at the destruction unions have caused in every other industry (automotive, education, government, etc...) Unions force companies to offer more than the market calls for, and industries always suffer as a result. If unions are allowed to carry as much weight in the NFL as they have in other industries, to assume pro football will not eventually suffer the same fate is being extremely naive. The fact that Brady follows this union line makes me literally sick to my stomach.
