Group of Hall of Famers threaten boycott until NFL provides insurance, salaries


These guys knew what they signed up for. The NFL is making millions and for them to ask of this now, I'm not sure if I agree? What about the other players that didn't make the hall?

 Is the NFL starting to implode starting from the inside? So many different issues starting to form now.  The NFL game itself is getting watered down with rule changes. And you have guys

 kneeling, inconsistent calls during games,  inconsistent suspensions. and excetra >  


 What's your take on this? Good or bad on the HOF guys wanting free pensions and healthcare provided

Eric Dickerson leading this. He also was among players who formed a "QB Club" years ago that divided players.

He's always been a selfish moron.

Lifetime healthcare to wear a gold jacket once a year? Spare me.

 ....would not attend the annual induction ceremony until Hall of Famers receive health insurance and an annual salary that includes a share of league revenue.

Good.  More seats to sell.  

It's a business, not a charity.  

He played 4 years of college ball - on a scholarship - and was adored and coddled

He played 10 years for another business (the NFL) and made a very handsome salary doing so as a contracted resource.   

No company in the world is going to provide a lifetime pension and healthcare to a temporary contracted resource.   That's why your contracted salary is through the roof.

Eric Dickerson and LT, two players who are right in the middle of this current feud over money with the HOF and NFLPA, pretty much killed the 1987 players strike by getting 100 more players to agree to cross the picket line in order to get paid.  

Two of the main things Gene Upshaw was fighting for in 1987?  Better retirement packages and post playing career healthcare for all players.  

And those two goofs cut Upshaw off at the knees.  

Btw, only ONE TEAM, had 100% solidarity during the strike and had no players cross the picket lines.
