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.
