NFLPA Says New OT Playoff System Must Be Collectively Bargained

Discussion in 'NFL General Discussion' started by BigBlueBruiser, Mar 24, 2010.

  1. NFL Players Association contends that it should have a say about the new overtime format for postseason games approved by the league Tuesday. George Atallah, the union's assistant executive director for external affairs, said the union believes that the new overtime system must be collectively bargained with the players. An NFL official disputed the union's contention, saying that the sport's collective bargaining agreement only requires the owners to consult with the players on the measure and that was done.

    Does the NFLPA just want to fight over every possible thing?

    ^yes. If they didn't they would become obsolete. Or at least a whole hell of alot less important.
    It reminds me of Al Sharpton and his staff. They HAVE to find things to be offended by and to rail against or they are out of a job
