As the players make more the league will push more of that cost onto consumers.  Owners aren't just going to share more of their money with players.

 

That is the case in most businesses. So, are you willing to sacrifice the employees so that owners/CEOs can make more money? It sounds like you're saying that employees are expendable. Unfortunately many people see it that way. Many employees don't get offered a raise until the employee tenders a resignation.

 

Hopefully that is changing. Last week I read this article:  

 

Headline: Shareholder Value Is No Longer Everything, Top C.E.O.s Say

 

"Chief executives from the Business Roundtable, including the leaders of Apple and JPMorgan Chase, argued that companies must also invest in employees and deliver value to customers."

 

^^^ That's the way I see it. Value employees (players) as well as customers (fans). Note: I don't mean to single you out. @GoatBeard had similar comments. And I don't agree with Rackeen. I am more in the middle. I think Elliot should play on his current contract. However, I also see that if owners can release players at any time for any reason, some players will try to maximize their earnings.

That isn't at all what I am saying.  Too many people jump to either one extreme or the other.  These guys are making millions to play football.  Where is all of the concern for the guy making 40k-50k a year and would like to go see a football game?  I don't hear anyone supporting that kind of employee.

 

I am not saying they should earn good living, but I am much more concerned about what is happening to the average people in this country to worry about football players.  If they wanted to make more maybe they should have chosen a better paying sport like baseball.

    • We'll likely start with all the LBs, but guessing only 2 of 3 (Glasgow, Franklin, Adams) will survive.    I'm guessing it might look like Will - Leonard, (Walker), Speed Mike - Walker, (Oke), Glasgow Sam - Oke, Adams   with Franklin being the odd man out if Glasgow makes the cut. 
    • Hooker , Willis , Odom ....   Blackmon maybe starts on the PUP list , if not will be inactive for at least the first month ? Glasgow can make it as a special teamer .    So kind of makes it possible that Milligan or another player would be the 4th safety. More likely that Rutledge is cut or on the PS. Just saying that I was reading he's could be a nice prospect. COVID really hurt guys like him . There was talk he could have gone late in the draft. 
    • I'll join if it's for fun. Not afraid to play for money or anything, I just don't have a paypal or credit card, and am not going to go through a check or someone else's credit card to play online. Normally, I use gift cards or play on fanduel. So I'll join for now or until you eventually play for money. If it stays for fun, I'd play every year. @Narcosys
    • Just heard that some of the minority owners are trying to sell their stocks
    • I have made all the changes that I addressed in the league email.  With this funky season we are about to have I have decided to push the money league vote until next year.   However, @Matthew Gilbert has not logged in since May 19th, and if I do not get an answer from him by Friday, I will remove him from the league.    @Jared Cisneros, @Peterk2011, and @w87r are the priority order of fill for that spot. Unless the first two do not wish to be part of the league anymore. I am referencing their requests to join from last year.   Draft position choice order is based off of last years final standings and is as follows:   1. @Lucky Colts Fan 2. @BPindy 3. @onebad150 4. @WarGhost21 5. @Bluefire4 6. @Matthew Gilbert 7. Luck Ness Monster 8. @Btown_Colt 9. Myself 10. Team Hulce   Please provide me some dates that you might be available to draft between now and September 6th,   @Lucky Colts Fan you're on the clock for your draft position.
