    Feds investigating charges that players' union tried to collude with NFL


    Rodger Goddell doesn't know his labor laws? I see Troy Vincent getting in trouble more if these allegations come out true, but old Rodger will also get his and it also can hurt the nfl. Uncapped year in 2010?

    1. So what if he did know the rules? Every league does it.

    2.They were just trying to work a little overtime to get a leg up on the competition.

    3. I'll bet Spartan fans are getting their jollies off of this too. Why are people making a big deal about it?

    4. Umteen years ago the NFL was the most respected league in sports.

    Sounds like both parties were working together but the female was on the outs.
    So they were colluding with each other ?

    What is wrong with trying to work on a new deal before the existing one expires? A strike or hold out of any kind hurts business and both sides lose. Just as the NHL. This seems to be much about nothing. The players really don't have a leg to stand on in this economy. Most of these guy's live check to check and would be homeless without being able to play.

    The Feds need to step in and cut inflationary Major league sports.
    Just to many commercials needed to float the NFL.
