So bad even a baby gets it!

Thanks to all of you for a great response to our NFL Films Poll so far! But we need everyone’s help to pass this along to all our old teammates wherever they are. We’re sure many of you may “not be located” by the mailing for your Options Instructions and that’s all the more reason we need to get this informal poll (and the information) out to as many retired players as possible. There’s a clear reason why retired players have always been kept in the dark and never allowed any kind of a vote on any issues or benefits that affect us. We need to send a clear message that the majority of retired players see this as the bad deal that it really is for all of us.

We’re asking each person voting in this poll to provide their name for several reasons: While our poll already includes security measures that will disqualify duplicate votes from the same source, we’re sure that even with overwhelming votes, keeping every vote anonymous will be just one more excuse for some to question the integrity of our poll. So please add your name to your vote so the NFL and their lawyers can hear you loud and clear (NOTE: We’ll keep your name offline but it will be matched to your vote). And BTW – all visitors are blocked from voting twice.
.
PLEASE NOTE: This is strictly a poll to get a general idea of retired players’ opinions and not an Opt Out or Objection form. To OPT OUT or FILE OBJECTIONS to the NFL Films Settlement Offer, please refer to the 12-page overview that was recently sent to members of the Class (click HERE to read the document and your options).

    NFL Owners have always had the option of funding a program that would make financial assistance available for needy former players.

    Why would they want to link it to a settlement in a case that has no bearing whatsoever on former players that need or deserve financial assistance?

    Watch out for some attorneys who practice “statecraft” against retired players because they are really lapdogs for the NFL and do not represent retired players. These attorneys only represent themselves and their checkbooks!

    We all need to become educated as to their schemes.

    From my seat, I’ve been watching this “wipeout” vote and knew it would be just that… AND I also expected there would be a few nays. Of which would no doubt be some lawyers’ proxies trying to put their hands in the cookie jar.
