    WAILEA, Hawaii (AP) -- Gene Upshaw was re-elected Wednesday for his ninth consecutive three-year term as executive director of the NFL Players Association.

    The 62-member board of player representatives, meeting here, voted unanimously to re-elect the former guard for the Raiders, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Upshaw, 61, was first elected to the position in 1982, immediately after his playing career ended.


    I didn't see this posted. I had thought that some of the players had issue with the lastest CBA agreement. I know the old timers don't care for him because of the way he has refused to help with their pension problems.
