Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is telling fans he’s just as unhappy as they are that the NFL’s players and owners couldn’t negotiate a deal on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
“You have every right to be disappointed and frustrated with the lack of a collective bargaining agreement,” Bowlen wrote in his letter to season-ticket holders. “As owner of the Denver Broncos and co-chair of the NFL Management Council Executive Committee, I want to say that I share your level of frustration. I am sorry the negotiating efforts have yet to yield a new deal.”
Bowlen should be frustrated in part with his fellow owners because the Broncos were willing to open their books, while the other owners refused. So he can’t be frustrated just with the other side of the table.
And just like the fans, Bowlen’s frustration is only going to grow over the next three weeks, as nothing is going to happen until April 6 at the earliest.
