Understanding the Impeding NFL Lockout
From Drew Magary's Monday, Peter King column (Ed: PK=Peter King, DM=Drew Magary)
PK: I believe there will be a work stoppage in 2011.I really can't understand how these rich fucks can't get together and work out a deal before ruining football in 2011. There is so much money involved you would think that a deal has to get done. Kinda like the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight that had to happen because there was too much money in the fight for it not to happen...Oh, wait...fuck us.
PK: The fact is, owners want players to bear some burden for the costs of all the stadiums that have been built in recent years, and players don’t want to pay for something they’ve never paid for before. That’s the elephant in the negotiating room right now, and no one’s budging.
DM: YOUR BOSS: Say Bob, we’re building a new factory in Dayton.
YOUR BOSS: But I need to cut your pay by $2,000 to help build it, even though it will bring in significantly more revenue in the long run.
YOU: But I don’t see how that’s fair.
YOUR BOSS: YOU FUCKING PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW A BUSINESS WORKS. YOU ARE FUCKING LOCKED OUT.
