The 2009 NFLPA LM-2 is Out!
We just finally managed to download and convert a copy of the entire 637-page NFLPA 2009 LM-2 that was officially filed with the Dept. of Labor on May 28, 2010. It’s another big one!
Some interesting notes on our first cursory review:
This year, the document’s signed by Union President Kevin Mawae AND Treasurer DeMaurice Smith; Union President Kevin Mawae was paid $22,168 (salary and expenses), Drew Brees was paid more – $383,199 – to be “Vice-President” (!!!), while Director of Retired Players Andre Collins was paid $157,840 last year; Richard Berthelsen was paid $906,658 as acting Executive Director; Executive Director DeMaurice Smith‘s $1,800,961 salary is now public knowledge, after a big fuss last year when he was first selected and it was disclosed that the PA had not even discussed his compensation during negotiations; In the Expenses section, we also noticed that the Minnesota Child Support Services of Minneapolis was paid $10,000 in September to satisfy a tax levy (probably a lien on one of the player’s royalty checks – wonder who it was?). .
We’ve posted on the entire document in four sections on Scribd for easier access and viewing. (Click on the FULL SCREEN button to enlarge it for easier navigation – hit the ESC key to close. You can also click the DOWNLOAD button to save a PDF copy for printing and reading.)
