    Well it is a quote from Williams so you can't really argue with the actual reporting in the story. You can question the validity of the statement made though.

    I think it's a valid statement because it's awesome.

    There should definitely be a player strike when it's time for a new cba

    Not enough money going to the players. Have you seen the money that basketball and baseball players are getting? Those leagues don't even come close to generating the type of revenue the NFL gets.

    Not that I disagree with you, but you are comparing a 53 man roster to a 12(?). NFL cap is almost double the NBAs

    http://www.ajc.com/sports/donald-trump-says-passed-buying-dallas-cowboys/HQ3mEJ8b0mwtw3BtBhVb2K/

    Bum Bright bought the Cowboys in 1984 for $85 million and sold the team to Jerry Jones for $140 million in 1989.

    Trumps foray into the USFL was an unmitigated disaster.

    The earnings difference makes up for that.

    They come nowhere near generating the costs that an NFL team does either. The NBA only has a couple of competitive teams because money can buy talent with their soft cap/luxury tax system. Teams dump talent to be under the cap for a season or two to make another run at it for a couple of years because one or two players can make a team. With only 14 players to pay compared to 53, travel costs much less, arenas cost much less. Teams play 82 games compared to 16.

    The NFL television ratings are dropping and it won't be long before it will show up in television contracts but it will still cost the same or more to run the teams. The Packers annual report shows their costs which are likely some of the lowest in the league and they sell out every game. They don't borrow money and some big sponsor/naming rights deals.

    You have scrubs in the NBA making 20 million and fully guaranteed contracts. NFL players see this. There will be a strike by the next CBA.

    Eh I don't feel bad for either side. I would much rather that money go towards stadiums instead of residents /the city being the one fucked. Owners are greedy assholes and the players make plenty.

    Just because NBA GMs are giving out stupid contracts doesn't mean the NFL should. I don't need backups making 15M because Timothy Mozgaf is

    +1 to the money being used for stadiums, public money going to those is one of the biggest scams going. Players should still get more though, they're putting a lot more on the line than players in many other sports.

    Stadiums are a separate issue and should be the owners problems. You have shit cities that cave in to billionaire owners. The money is there. The players just need to stop being weak and take it to the owners.
