Union creates team spokesman position

Among the various resolutions passed during the NFLPA’s ongoing meetings in Maui is a provision that helps to ensure the propagation of a more uniform message by the players.

According to Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal, player reps voted to create a spokesman position for each team.  The spokesman will be available to address questions from the media.

This ensures that players not equipped or able to articulate the union’s message will be able to say, “Go ask the spokesman” whenever a question is posed regarding the ongoing labor dispute.  And it allows the union to better communicate the message without creating contradictory or inconsistent sound bites.

  2. Hey NFLPA, no one cares what you think, go sh1t in your hat. I think i have to go to bed so I can get up each day to earn 1/10th of the average NFL player. Feeling really bad for you.

    It also ensures that players who do not want to toe the union line will be fined by the union for talking in place of the spokesperson.

  4. Okay, let’s see. For the Pack,
    If intelligence, passion, humanity, a sense of fairness, and an ability to see the big picture are the main requirements (and an occasional burst of temper is permitted): CHARLES WOODSON.
    If articulation skills, emotional self-discipline, a retentive memory, and an analytical turn of mind are the main requirements (and a mind-numbingly dull personality is permitted): AARON RODGERS.
    If absolute dependability, gregariousness, drive, tenacity, a sense of humor and a huge heart are the main requirements (and occasionally acerbic remarks are permitted): DONALD DRIVER.
    And if the job requires absolutely no skills at all: ______________________ (fill in the blank).

  5. It’s a smart move. Let’s face it, the owners face the threat of fines for talking out of place about the labor situation so what’s the big deal.

    Untrue! Rodgers is anything but mind-numbingly dull.
