Sam Huff is Mad as Hell
I have stood on the sidelines long enough to see how corrupt the NFLPA is to the players that gave this game the foundation that carries forth so that today the generation of active players can make millions of dollars.
It is hard to believe what the NFLPA has done. In the past and in the future we have just gone through a change in our government and elected a new president. We need to change and separate ourselves from this current group, which is supposed to represent all current and former players in the NFL. They got their rear-ends kicked in front of the US Congress and they got their rear ends kicked in front of the judge. They paid millions of dollars in legal fees. They have made sure that they get re-elected by changing labor laws that retired players have no vote. The association was formed in 1956. We have no vote even though I pay dues and was a player representative all through that new time. Now this group, in my opinion, continues their hatred toward retired players.
The last NFLPA Directory that I have received even though I paid my dues was in 2006. The question I ask: They lost in Congress and they lost in open court and now they continue to pay all these lawyer fees – Why? They have strung it out and continue these legal fees and draw interest on the $28 million instead of paying off the debt.
I am an ex-linebacker and in the Hall of Fame and I do not see any Hall of Famers in the NFLPA.
My uniform number was scrambled in the Madden games and I just find this whole situation unbelievable.
I think it is time we separate ourselves from this group of union leaders so to speak even though it is called the Players Association and make them pay the 28 million that they lost in court and we go our own way and tell them to go to hell the same as they have told us.
