I wonder how Upshaw and the Union will deal with this? Joe six gets 50k a year..and no guarantees on squat. Why are these atheletes specail? Makes you wonder why you cant take your family to more than one game a year without breaking the bank

You (and I) pay what we pay because owners want to charge that. A lot of the cap is the tv deal. When it comes to ticket prices a lot of times teams break even if you would have taken out the tv deal. NFL careers are to short. I don't like hold outs but it's the only way you make sure you get your worth. If they guarantee contracts you will see all these huge deals cut in half.
