    Well, we don't know the exact details.

    The main point is it's not the owners' money. It's the players' money.
  2. Escrow is actually the wrong word here. They...

    Escrow is actually the wrong word here. They money is withheld in case of unforeseen costs. It's more like a emergency fund in case owners can't pay bills.

    Triggered?
  4. What? July 4, 1776 *was* during a civil war, and...

    What? July 4, 1776 *was* during a civil war, and the the newfound United States were *allied* with the French. The British even promised freedom to slaves who joined them, so arguably founding the...

    There's a big difference between that statement and:

    "What ____ are doing is disrespectful (even though that isn't their intention) and I will never agree with them."

    You don't get to interpret...
  7. Slavery was the bigger disaster. And the...

    Slavery was the bigger disaster.

    And the majority of the founders had slaves. Slavery was part of the law. There is no basis to argue it was just a necessity or an unfortunate error. Slave labor...

    I specifically contrasted the flag with the date when the nation was founded (as a racist slave state). It isn't even the same flag! So it only makes no sense if you have a poor understanding of...

    Obviously it will hurt players. Veterans will get cut and forced to play for less. But that's still a better solution than letting owners hold money in escrow.

    Nobody is losing money running a...

    But the founding of the nation and slavery went hand-in-hand. The majority of the founding fathers were slave owners themselves.

    I'm not contesting that societies evolve. I'm asking why it's...

    Well, it sure seems like you're the one who never listened or read Brees' initial statement that cause the controversy.

    Because "he understands that it wasn’t the goal at all to disrespect the...

    Is that taken from his apology? Because it definitely wasn't part of the initial statement.
  13. So? The whole point of contention was that he...

    So? The whole point of contention was that he referred to the protests as disrespecting the flag.
  14. The flag isn't, but the date of the creation of...

    The flag isn't, but the date of the creation of the racist slave state is still that.

    If you think that black people celebrating the day their ancestors were no longer slaves instead is some sort...

    What he actually said is: "I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country."

    Revenue split, yes. If a loss in revenue happens this season, the salary cap will get adjusted next season.

    But there's nothing about emergency or unforeseen circumstances. So there's no reason...
  17. Anyone who thinks that's a good argument must...

    Anyone who thinks that's a good argument must have a very simplistic understanding of history. The country founded on July 4, 1776 was a racist slave state; the flag flown before football games does...

    Actually I just checked and the NFL CBA does not contain provisions about force majeure or unforeseen emergencies.

    So there is no basis at all for owners putting player salaries into escrow.

    I...

    Wouldn't you?

    I'd first wait and see that the owners take their losses as well, not just use player salaries to offset theirs.

    I would says Earl Thomas had an even bigger impact in terms of making Seattle's defensive scheme work, but Kam Chancellor's absence had a bigger effect on the defense than Richard Sherman's.

    95+% of people think what Jackson posted is wrong, so it won't be the same story as Brees' statement, which was more like a 50-50 split.

    Who wants to hear a sports discussion panel discuss...

    You still have to show that Jackson wants genocide.

    I rolled my eyes at you asking where his punishment is, then saying you don't want punishment, then accusing people of hypocrisy.

    You still have to show that DeSean Jackson wants genocide.


    BTW here are my first responses to this thing compared to the Brees thing:


    Very unequal responses obviously.

    Thanks for confirming that this is really about the magnitude of the public outrage for you.

    There's a psychological phenomenon called the "narcissism of small differences" that explains what...
