It has been widely reported that the Steelers voted against the new CBA. Per a league source with knowledge of the voting, 78 players voted against the CBA, and six players voted in favor of it.
The primary complaint, we’re told, was a lack of knowledge about what the players were agreeing to.
And so it was more than just a protest against the league. It was also, if not primarily, an objection to the absence of information that was provided to the players by the NFLPA.
