    Greed, Greed, Greed - I stand it any more. Secret discussions, court dates, drop dead dates, closed players only workouts, layoffs, cutbacks, rhetoric - it all stinks because it isn't football and it is starting to make the fans worried the greed may actually prevent the regular season from starting on time. We're already worried the lockout has negatively impacted the quality of the game, whenever it begins.

    Now Tommy Boy comes town to run a few plays, great. But his only quote is when he smirks and scolds Hoyer for speaking with the press. Nothing like - "I know the fans are suffering and I'm going to do my darnedest to end this greedhead fest." Listen TB, I am backer and fan, but you owe us more than silence. We pay the freight and you put you're name on that lawsuit so that means you think the players are being treated unfairly. When you signed that writ did you spend much time wondering how unfairly the beef you and owners are having was going to treat the fans who love football and may never make a 1/10th of what your take from football will be for just this year!!

    How about a court injunction that orders each player and owner to every day wear, until the greedhead fest is over, a bright yellow T-shirt that reads-

    I'M SO GREEDY AND FOOLISH - on the front
    $9 BILLION AIN'T ENOUGH FOR ME - on the back

    Don't laugh, if these ultra richies suddenly had to show up at the country club, the strip club, charity events, on TV interviews, and had their pictures taken over and over wearing this nasty wardrobe I guarantee you the work stoppage would be over - SOON. And isn't that the most pathetic thing -a dispute so shallow just making the ultra-rich feel a bit uncomfortable the greed loses out to cash flow and embarrassment. ugh.

    There are billions of dollars at stake and the interests of a few thousand players involved, and you want to give them t-shirts? [​IMG]

    uh...actually ...no...it's actually pretty normal for the past few months

    it's like, you go to the same bar after work for thirty years and one day you walk in...no beer...why? ...there's a fight between the brewers and the distributors over a goddamned bottlecap so ...NO BEER...think about it...I would say all kinds of irrational reactions would result...

    Better question: who's paying for all of these t-shirts? 53 players (minimum) plus an owner is 54, times 32 is over 1700 t-shirts. Who's paying the thousands that it takes to make them? Both sides claim to be broke!

    Are the fans really suffering? I don't feel like I'm suffering. If there's no football this year, then so be it; it's not like there's nothing else to do in the summer and fall.

    Its difficult for Tom to speak because there is very little in this deal for him no matter how it turns out. After all, he has a brand new signed contract that will most likely take him to the end of his career and he has been one of the highest paid players ever. The best result for Tom is that it is resolved as soon as possible.
