No way really what do they have to strike for anyway really are they not making enough money for playing a GAME I haven't herd one good reason why I think if they strike then they should be gone it's not like there is a shortage of people wanting to play but that's what I think I'm sure people say I'm an idiot but my god it's just a game lol
If you're a real fan, then the player has earned your trust and respect in some way. If they strike for a reason you agree with why not support them? Otherwise you may want to re-evaluate supporting them and calling yourself a fan.
If the players are complaining about the hits or money, then maybe they should work solid labor in construction, or street paving. Or maybe use that college degree from college to do something else. NO ONE HAS THEM ON THE FIELD BUT THEMSELVES!If they don't like it, let other who love the game play it.
They get paid to play a game. Wah, poor little things get paid millions and still go bankrupt. Oh no, I can't play cause I hurt my little toe, boo hoo. What do you think would happen to most people if they called into work because of a hurt toe? Only a pro NFL player can get away with that. Its not exactly important work they do either. The players and owners are both greedy. The only people that are really going to get hurt by a strike are the ones nobody cares about. Ticket agents, grounds keepers, janitors, concession stand workers, and all the other people who keep those big stadiums running.
Most players don't make tons of money, no where near the millions the top players earn. Their time on the team is limited to just a few years. Add to that the high risk of injury and the millions they make for the owners. I don't blame them for striking & I do support them.
No! The players make millions of dollars playing a game for people to watch. We should to pay any more money to the players to cover their injuries or disabilities from playing a game. We pay the military less than 7 dollars an hour to work a 24 hour day to keep the US free and help other countries, and not help his or her families when he or she are gone. My husband in and injured soldier with three tours to Iraq, he has lost some good friends. Then on top of this we do have 5 children and are told to pack up and move at anytime. We make less than 40 thousand a year the military and only pays for a medical bills for him we pay for the family to go to the doctor and the optometrist and dentist and the plan for the vision and dental really sucks they only pay up to 2400.00 an year 2500. On orthodontist for life and 40 to 80 % on dental like cavities, fillings, ect. If you’re going to pay 150 to go to a game please by all means do so but when they go on strike because they have million dollar homes, 6 or 7 cars, 4 baby momma’s and they go to jail for rape, DUI, and fighting. Or out cheating on their wives think about handing them over another couple million for not investing in his or her future instead of pissing it away. Then think hey we might have this wrong because they do not go out to a battle field to die for his country so why do they make so much? Or you could think about the miners strikes from WV because they don't make over 20 bucks an hour, but hey that’s more than a US soldier is paid huh? If we were invaded today who would you turn to for help a jock or The American Armed Forces?
