Last year, we posted a stream of stories regarding the decisions of the players from the various teams to authorize in advance the decertification of the NFLPA.
Fasten your seat belts for a stream of stories on the decisions of the players from the various teams to recertify.
We’ll wake you when it’s over.
Actually, we probably won’t post all of them. But we’ll post the first one.
Ron Borges of the Boston Herald reports that the Patriots unanimously have voted to recertify the union.
The vote came after a 90-minute meeting between NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith and the players, during which Smith explained the importance of being unionized.
The most important point? Without a union, the NFL is exposed to antitrust litigation attacking the draft and the rookie wage scale. Which would take away money from the veteran players.
Which helps explain why the vote was unanimous.
