During NFLPA spokesman George Atallah’s visit to PFT Live on Wednesday, he mentioned today’s news that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and chief in-house lawyer Jeff Pash would reduce their salary to $1 per year in the event of a work stoppage.
So we asked Atallah whether NFLPA executive director De Smith would do the same.
If Smith does, Atallah said it’s not going to be something that the NFLPA will announce via press release.
Which probably means Smith won’t be doing it.
Atallah also thinks that the move by the league is further evidence that a lockout is coming. And he said that, if Goodell and Pash will be cutting off their health insurance as well, then it’s a move that can be taken seriously.
