“Hopefully, they can just turn their attention to getting a collectively bargained for agreement,” Wire said. “I think maybe its better that a decision was finally made about the stay and the lockout. Now, we can get down to the important matter at hand.”
It’s sort of amazing that this opinion is even noteworthy. But it’s not one we’ve heard from any players publicly, and it’s certainly not the public stance and the NFLPA*.
Both sides seem more interested in exercising all legal leverage than they do getting “down to the important matter at hand.”
At some point, we can only hope the two sides will turn their attention to getting a collectively bargained for agreement. Even the players and owners have to agree that’s the best ending to all this drama.
