I know players hate it, but they negotiated (or accepted the inclusion of) the franchise tag in the last cba, yet everytime teams use it for its' intended purposes players bitch. Players union needs to step up and tell them to STFU. :D

I really dont understand it in Briggs case. He made $650,000 base sal. last year. The 7.2 Mill tag is a 1000% raise from last year.

They should, but you know Upshaw would never, ever do anything that might upset a player.

he is the league's puppet and I like it that way. He was Tagliabue's grinder monkey, Tagliabue plays a tune and Eugene dances. This is good because since the strike of 87 when the NFL rolled out replacement players, there has not been a hint of a work stoppage. In MLB the players union calls all the shots in the NFL the league office calls them.
