Plaintiffs anger some players

Posted on: July 22, 2011 3:28 pm

Whether some of the plaintiffs in he Brady vs. the NFL antitrust lawsuit actually asked for special compensation is still up for debate.

The perception that they did isn't exactly sitting well with some of their brethren.

"The idea that they would even consider holding up the deal is ------," said one player. "For what? For putting their names on the lawsuit. We all could have done that. If you're going to give somebody $10 million, give it to Jeff Saturday. He was in every meeting. He was part of it. What did those guys do? Put their names on the suit. Big deal."

The two players reportedly asking for special treatment -- see money -- were Patriots guard Logan Mankins and Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson. Both players have either denied that report or had their representatives deny it.

Even so, the idea of it isn't exactly appealing to some other players.

"They are going to put the whole deal at risk for themselves," said the player. "The whole idea of it is -----."

Plaintiffs anger some players

The recent lockout of the NFL Players, and the subsequent decertification by the NFLPA has led to many months of meetings and negotiations with very little accomplished. 

 During all of these metings, one major group has been left out, the fans, millions of us.  That being the case, the formation of the Fan Association came about. 

Unofficial as of now, but in time, we hope to become the only voice that those that are the bread and butter of the NFL, the fans, will have in future labor discussions.

It is tougher to keep 1900 on the same page than 31 (Al Davis doesn't count).
