I am trying to understand what Upshaw sees as a goal a few years out...what is that big gold mine that he wishes for??? It is so so obvious that he is pushing the owners more and more fot a higher percentage and threatening with the uncapped year and decertification and a strike. I don't see that as helpful at all to players in the long run. The uncapped year works at both ends..top and bottom and for every FA that hits it big, I bet there are 3 or 4 that will be paid a LOT less. But given 07 is uncapped...what is beyond that is SO great for the players?? Does he think that revenue in general is going to increase after a strike and labor problems?? What magic wand is going to come and reward players even more than now?? If a league is like baseball and not competitive what makes him think it is going to bring in more fans?? What bargaining will players have with NO union at all?? I just do not see how the players gain anything at all by what they are doing....to me Upshaw is selling a nirvana that doesn't exist, will never exist and is just leading the players to economic slaughter. If the revenue is all down and the goose is dead, who wins??
