Peyton Manning may have his name on the antitrust lawsuit filed against the NFL, but in some ways he’s like most fans. At a certain point, he just starts to tune out labor news.
“I followed it early and it just got so exhausting because every day was the day it was supposed to end, and that was like three months ago,” Manning said Friday, via Larry Holder of CBSSports.com. “I’ve gotten to the point now where I’ve just told Jeff Saturday to call me when I can go back to the facility because otherwise it has been exhausting every day hoping that’s the day.”
Manning is also like the rest of us in that he doesn’t know where things will go from here.
“I have no information or insight as to when it’s going to end. I don’t think it’s going to be this week, but hopefully it will be real, real soon,” Manning said.
Holder asked Manning if he felt like he should be more involved in the talks considering his name is on the lawsuit.
“I know everything that I need to know,” Manning said. “At this point there’s a lot of talk between the lawyers that are making the decisions and I don’t have a law degree. I’m involved. I know everything I need to know. I don’t have any reservations about that.”
