I have been watching all the labor talks and how each side is doing the right thing. I was self employed for 18 years of my life so I think I have little bit of an idea of what the owners are talking about. I know they are greedy billionaires and they don’t have a clue what an average person goes through in a day.
But I don’t think it’s any of the players business how much money the owners make. These players look forward to playing in the NFL and make a lot of money in a short time. They say they need health care paid for. When you make millions of dollars a year an average person would say that they will be able to pay for their own. They say that they get hurt playing the game of Football. Well the last time I checked that is what life is all about. We all know people who were hurt in car, construction accidents and we all have friends and relatives who have died from different diseases. That is what most of us would call the game of life. Nobody is guaranteed tomorrow.
So for all the rich Football players who are sending messages to us about how the isn’t about the money. You say it’s for family and a reward for how hard you work. Please! So for all of us people are making from 10,000 to 100,000 it sounds like you don’t think we work hard for our money. Have you any idea about the present state of our economy. We have 9% unemployment and there are a lot of your fans losing their jobs even today. You need to get up each morning and thank God for the job you have and how much money you make.
It’s up to you if you want to continue to say the owners are greedy and wrong. That’s your right as an American. But please would you stop sending us messages that it’s not about the money and that you really care about us fans. (IT’S ALWAYS ABOUT THE MONEY)
