CBA Fanpost Opinion


I was just wondering which side most people are rooting for during CBA negotiations. I know all we really want is just another agreement so we can watch football, but if you had to choose a side are you for the owner's or players. I know both are a little greedy and both need to compromise more but what do you think?

Just a few things to consider:

  • Under the current CBA the players have around 60% of the revenue dedicated to them, owners are going after this (they want approximately 1 billion more) due to the rising costs of stadiums and what they are saying is the "need to grow the game"
  • Going along with this the owners refuse to open there books to the NFLPA to see if they really are in financial distress
  • A potential 18 game season, with this I'm not positive whether or not the owners want to add spots on rosters but I believe not
  • A rookie wage scale- we could all agree that this is needed
  • Another interesting thing I heard on the radio the other day is the potential for advertising on jerseys on the shoulder, this could be a huge source of revenue but what are your thoughts?
  • The CBA extension in 2006 was considered a victory for the players, a victory that some owners have gone on recording saying they resent
  • Courts just recently ruled that the owners will still receive revenue from guaranteed TV contracts
Really both sides are already pretty well off and all we really want is more of the great game of football. I just want your opinion on the matter.
