This is really just a more publicized example of what's going on all around the country between the rich ceos, owners and the people that do all the work to make those people rich. The corporation I work for has made record sales of over a BILLION dollars and record profits of well over 100 MILLION the last 3 years yet they continue to cut it's work force, have held back pay raises for 5 straight years and cut back on our pensions and health care every time a contract comes up. Yet somehow they find ways to pay bonuses to the corporate stooges and upper management that total more than my years pay every year. I'm not alone either and I'm sure there's dozens of people on this site going through the same thing I am if not worse.
I sure wish I had a union rep like Donald Fehr to stand up for me and get back what I deserve and I'm sure there's a lot of hard working people like myself thinking the same thing right now. The players deserve everything they get because it's them that's taking the health risks, it's them whose careers only last a few short years and it's them who the people pay to see play the game.
For all you right wingers taking the owners sides you're dead wrong and you would know that if you ever did a hard days work in your life. Nobody and do mean NOBODY is paying money to go watch the owners sit in their box.
Enough with the bull**** health risk crap. That is such a load of ****, these guys are so overpaid for what they do, they should be bending over backwards to not only the owners, but all the fans they care so much for
Sorry bud, but the day I feel sorry for a person who will probably make more in a couple of years PLAYING a GAME, than I will in a lifetime, gets no sympathy from me. Oh, and I am in a union, so please don't give me no **** about cutbacks etc...
It is one thing when you're making a decent wage , ex $30 an hour & they wanna cut your wages, its a whole different thing when the players make $30 as they put one sock on.
