We’ve had a lot of great spots on PFT Live from players during the lockout.
Wednesday’s talk with Browns linebacker Scott Fujita was one of my favorites, and not only because Florio somehow avoided litigation talk for half of it.
Fujita does a great job of honestly explaining the viewpoint of the players, while recognizing a deal needs to be fair for both sides. He was asked about the increase in acrimony between the players and owners of late. It was the one part of the interview where Fujita’s passion really came through.
“The reality is this has been a well-calculated, pre-meditated plan to lock the players out . . . Basically they’ve got everybody by the balls, and that’s unfortunate,” Fujita said. “It becomes really hard to trust anything. It’s unfortunate. And that’s too bad because I believe both sides have contributed to make this game what it is. And that trust has been broken.”
