    I totally agree. I watch Red Zone only because of my FF team. I think there are millions of people who ONLY watch because of FF.

    The punishment is just one bullet point on a list of many things the players feel they got screwed on in the last CBA.

    Back to the thread topic, what is the basis of the Jones suit? I cannot stand Goodell but have no idea what Jones is thinking here. If he sues OTHER OWNERS, he may be really stepping in it. Typically, billionaires do not take too kindly to another billionaire trying to bully them. I can see some of them punching back HARD! While I agree with Jones that Goodell should go, I don't see how this works for Jones.

    The average career for a NFL player is less than 3 years isn't it? If that is the case there is no way they hold out any significant amount of time. The pay disparity in the NFL with the large rosters is huge as well and a majority of players just can't afford the hold out. Sure Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers can but that isn't most the league.

    Much easier for MLB and NBA players to strike.

    Wasn't one of the main things in the agreement the players wanted was the lax practice rules?
    Jones and the other owners voted 100% to have a contact Committee work out the contract for the commish. He is a damn liar when he said it had nothing to do with Elliott.

    Did I hear Goodell's agent is asking for $50 million/year? If so that's absurd; especially given the public perception of the league under his direction.

    NFL owners think Goddell is a moneymaker, so they're trying to max out as much as they can while the NFL is still relevant.
