Now that the NFLPA is represented by...a lawyer, a wizard of words and ligation you can now settle into the fact there maybe no football on the horizon. With the recent, and may I add laughable statement made from NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith I can only wonder if there was another choice to head up this once strong union.
Smith looks pretty transparent when he puffs out his chest and screams "our internal deadline" has come and gone all the while claiming headlines across the country.
Then seconds later...an answer comes. TROY VINCENT! Yes, Troy Vincent the former president of the NFL Players Association would have been the most logical choice. The 5 x time pro-bowler would be less concerned with "internal deadlines" and more about representing football players and their needs, while keeping football on your TV.
Smith is an NFL outsider who has no labor law experience, and just happens to be buddies with the President. Not bad! Known for being a trial lawyer...I ask myself is if this guy is making progress or balancing on the edge of a very damaging proposition. The game is so healthy and has become our nations most popular sport.
Mr. Smith seems to be comfortable that he is about to change the lives of millions of NFL fans and ruin alot of Sundays for hard working people.
