Hmmm… maybe they won’t notice.
That must be what the NFL owners were thinking when they attempted to slip new elements into a potential deal, according to the NFLPA.
“Here is what the ‘Real’ fans need to know: The owners tried to slip many things in to the CBA “they” voted on that were NEVER agreed to!#PRPlay,” Saints fullback Heath Evans said on Twitter.
Similar player quotes were given to reporters as Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports reported a player saying the NFL “will never learn” about backing players into a corner.
One thing is clear; if there is going to be football this season, both the NFL and the NFLPA need to be open and honest with each other.
